Middle school students have been working hard since last term in the lead up to ANZAC day on a number of activities.

Senior staff shared personal stories to do with different wars. They spoke about the characteristics of people who had served in war or survived at home.


Students created their own poppy tributes which are on display at the College. They created two poppies – one for themselves and one for a senior student.

Students who wished to, included a personal message with their poppy.



Braemar College has entered the ANZAC DAY SCHOOLS’ AWARDS 2015.
