Anzac Day Kit (100 year anniversary edition)

The Anzac Day Kit contains everything a school needs to commemorate Anzac Day or Remembrance Day and has been a popular resource for schools since 2010. We have now updated the kit so that it contains two extra songs, specially written for the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign in 2015. This now makes four songs in all, along with a video clip/slide show for each song and a suggested ceremony that has been updated to make special reference to the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign. The new kit includes:

- A musical disc with four songs that we have written for Anzac Day that deal with the sacrifice of our service men and women and the impact of that sacrifice on our nation .‘Lest We Forget’, and ‘Australia Remembers’ were both top 10 songs in the ‘Australia’ category of the 2010 Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) competition). ‘John Simpson Kirkpatrick’ and “Mother’s Arms” were written specifically for the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli. John Simpson Kirkpatrick tells the moving story of the man of that name better known as ‘the man with the donkey’. In 2014, the song also achieved top 10 in the ASA competition.

- Instrumental (“karaoke”) versions of “Lest We Forget” and “Australia Remembers”, allowing students to sing along to the musical accompaniment.

- A moving ‘Quicktime’ movie/slide show with music and images for each song as a focus for reflection.

- A copy of the lyrics and a simple musical score for each song.

- A suggested order of service for an Anzac Day commemoration service (specially updated for the 100th anniversary in 2015).

- Digital recordings of the Last Post and Rouse for raising and lowering of the flag.

Sample lyrics:

Lest We Forget

Lest we forget, pay our respects.
To the women and men who served our land.
They heard the call, they marched in time.
For our country gave their lives lest we forget.

Going from their homes and families they saw a job.
That needed to be done, away in distant lands.
For the sake of freedom, freedom every where.
The sons and daughters of Australia were there.
