At 2.30 am on 25th April, 1915 the ANZACs arrived at Gallipoli in ships. 2015 marks 100 years since that date - a date of great significance to both NZ and Australia. 

This week our Kidsedchatnz chat is all about ANZAC Day.

Q3. Do you have any extended family that fought in Gallipoli? What stories can you tell us?
Q4. How does your school and/or family celebrate ANZAC Day?

Q6. There are lots of great ANZAC books and stories out there. Which is your favourite and why? Share your book reviews! :)
Q7. Why are poppies sold before and on Anzac Day? Why was the poppy chosen and what does it represent?
