On the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will remember them.
Today, 4A discovered what is was like to be apart of the Great War. We reflected on the ANZACs experience and imagined what it would’ve been like for the families at home waiting for any word from their loved ones overseas.
Each student pretended to be a solider fighting overseas and wrote a letter home to their loved ones.
Dear my family,
I’ve finally landed in the middle of the war I’m going really well we are together with the new Zealand’s when we arrived at Gallipoli and pushed the boats away into darkness I’m really scared I didn’t think it would be this bad. I’m taking care of myself trying to save our country and the world by the Germans cause there in fading us. I’m very prepared I’ve been training for this day but it is still so hard for me and i can not wait to come back home so we can live in peace and will not be bothered again after this when we win.
From your loved one jensyn

To My Dearest Family,
I’m In the middle of war but I’m really scared because I can see a lot of bullets flying everywhere and guns in people’s hands but I’ve got this.
I signed up because I want to save my beautiful country, This is the scariest thing I’ve ever discovered… I nearly got shot but I dodged it.. The country we are fighting with the Germans … But my Friends signed up with me at least I know someone is here with me. Wish me luck..
Lots of love

To my dearest family
I have finally landed in the middle of the war and we’re just finished the first week of training. I felt a bit home sick the first night that we were there. It was hard training for the war but I’m here now in the middle of the war
TO MY DEAREST HOME
I’ve finally landed in Gallipoli but the boat was too slow and we made it.In 2-3 days. But my home was feeling sad of me but there feeling proud that I’m in war. It took a long time for doing training.It took about 1-2 months.
