Australian War Memorial: What does Remembrance Day mean?

  10-Nov-2021      11:00AM
Live Event
10
Nov

Have you ever gathered for Remembrance Day at 11am on the 11th of November? Why do people come together for a ceremony at this time and date? Why do some people wear poppies, yet others wear wattle or rosemary? Find out about the history of Armistice Day, and some of the special events that have taken place at the Australian War Memorial on Remembrance Day since the building opened in 1941. Explore symbols of remembrance, and the stories of men and women who have served for Australia.

We encourage teachers and students to email us photographs demonstrating how their schools have commemorated Remembrance Day in the past. We would love to share these in the webinar, so please ensure any identifiable students have the appropriate media release permissions.

We also welcome any questions that your students may have about Remembrance Day prior to the webinar, as educators will endeavour to answer these during the program.

Please email photographs and questions to [email protected]

Please note, the Zoom room has a maximum capacity of 10,000 participants. Additional participants will be directed to a YouTube live link. Each platform will allow students to view the same program, but the poll and question and answer functions are unavailable via YouTube.

This event will be accessed with a YouTube link after the session on 10 November.
