Our aim is to make our resources as user friendly as possible. We know teachers don’t have a lot of time to prepare meaningful ceremonies, so we do this for them. And we have the experience. All our work is trialled in the classroom before it is finalised.

Teachers also appreciate being able to adapt the liturgy to suit their needs. The word doc. makes this simple!

We have had an amazing response to our ANZAC Day and Reconciliation kits and feel very sure you will be well pleased with this resource...So please check it out!
