What Is Anzac Day?

This national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand is traditionally a public holiday. Here are a few ways to explain it to the students in your classroom:
  1. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
  2. Soldiers in those forces became known as ANZACs.
  3. Anzac Day is held every year on the anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli, Turkey on the 25th of April in 1915.
  4. On this day, we honor Australians 'who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.'
  5. We also honor 'the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.'

When Is Anzac Day 2023?

As we mentioned, Anzac Day is celebrated on the 25th of April each year to mark the Gallipoli landing. That means it will be celebrated on a Tuesday in 2023.
