ANZAC Day occurs on 25 April every year. On this day we honor all the men and women who have participated in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world, including the Anzac s (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. Incredibly, 100 years have passed since Australia’s involvement in the First World War.

The date itself marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. This year is the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign. This campaign is often claimed to have played an important part in fostering New Zealand's sense of national identity. Many New Zealanders feel a strong connection to this event, through family and whānau stories. The centenary offers every New Zealander the chance to consider the impact of the First World War and remember those who served.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
