Today we celebrated a very special day in Australia. It is Anzac Day - a day when we remember all those men and women who fought to make Australia the wonderful safe place it is today. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This year our school principal asked me if I would take the senior students and prepare our ceremony. It was a wonderful experience. With help from the students we organised our guest speaker, chose the music and poems the students read and made the wreath for the ceremony. As I now have a lovely new building to work in with lots of room I made an Anzac Day display which the students loved. The photo is of a friend's husband who fought in Vietnam. The slouch hat also belongs to him. The bugle belongs to my husband's family but sadly we don't know exactly who played it so many years ago. It's so sad when history is lost like that.
Hi, my name is suzy and I live on a farm in Western Australia with my husband. We have two daughters and one son. This year we have been blessed with the arrival of our first grandson. I work at our local school two days per week and I help my husband run our farm.
