Mounties ANZAC Day School Competiton
This year Mounties Group will be participating in the RSL & Services Clubs Associations' 'Respect the Day' campaign, designed to promote respect and appreciation of ANZAC Day and to encourage Australians to reflect on the significance of the day.
As a part of this campaign, the Club will hold a competition for all students currently enrolled in years K to 12 attending schools within the Fairfield and Liverpool vicinity to submit creative presentations explaining and demonstrating the importance of ANZAC Day in the community and why the day occupies a sacred place in Australians' hearts.
Six finalists will be selected to present at Mounties ANZAC Day ceremony on Thursday 25 April in the brand-new location at Mounties rear foyer. Presentations will take place on the day and a panel of judges will select one winner from a primary school and one winner from a secondary school. The winners will be invited along with five other school friends to a hosted field trip to the War Memorial and Parliament House in Canberra including lunch.
Mounties Group is particularly passionate about the need to educate our youth and members of the ANZAC Day tradition to ensure the day is recognised and celebrated with due diligence. The competition is a great way of getting the community involved to learn from each other's experiences and stories.
