We have spent a lot of time reading about WW1 and all the brave New Zealand men and women that risked their lives for our country.
Throughout our learning we learnt that 10% of the New Zealand population went away to war, and from this over 50% were casualties war. We worked this out that if the 24 of us in Room 10 went to war, 12 of us would have been injured or killed. This made us really think about how lucky we are to live in such a safe country, where we are able to experience all the wonderful opportunities that we have here in New Zealand. We are proud of the men and women that fought for us, and what they have achieved for our country, and for their efforts we will continue to remember them.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them

Room 10 was extremely fortunate to have Stan "Pop" (Ashley's Granddad) come and share his knowledge and stories about ANZAC with us. We had a great time looking at all the different objects the soldiers had in the wars.
Here are some of the pictures from our visit with "Pop". Who can remember what each of these items are? Put your answers in the comments.
