Activities, including national and state competitions, to challenge and extend on your students classroom learning.
The Simpson Prize is a national competition for year 9 and 10 students which sees eight students, one from each State and Territory, accompanied by two teachers, flown to Gallipoli to attend the Dawn Service and other ANZAC Day ceremonies.
The National History Challenge is research-based competition for students in years 5 to 12. It emphasises and rewards quality research, the use of community resources and effective presentation.
The Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Australian War Memorial jointly support the annual competition and sponsor a special category for wartime history entitled Celebrations, Memories and History.
Open to all Australian primary and secondary schools, the 2011 ANZAC Day Schools’ Awards is an exciting competition that encourages students to learn about ANZAC Day and why veterans are commemorated on this special day. Schools can enter as an individual class or a whole school.
Consider it as an option for your next professional development day. Book a session at the Memorial and our professional staff will tailor a program to suit your specific needs.
