ANZAC Day

 
Anzac Day is nearly upon us and this year it is the 100 year centenary of the Gallipoli landings during the First World War.  There are resources in the library if you would like more information about the history of the ANZACs, follow the link below to search the catalogue.

The Faculty of Health have a display in Wikitoria Katene recognising the role of nurses in WW1, in particular Gallipoli. You are also invited to make a poppy to add to the display; adding the name of family/whanau members who have served.
