Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.
Australians recognise 25th April as a day of national remembrance. Commemorative services are held across the nation at dawn and again later in the day where servicemen and servicewomen meet to take part in marches. Anzac Day is a time at which Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war.
The gym will be closed on this day so that we can show our support to the Men and Women who serve this country and take part in the Commemoration Ceremonies.
