Update 2014:
While the 2013 Holiday program has ended, there are other Shrine activities on.  See here for details.


Is the quotation which springs to my mind when I visit the Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance.  As school holidays are nearly upon us, The Shrine of Remembrance reminds me that they are running a school holiday program.

Spring into Anzac School Holiday Program- Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne

Spring into the spirit of Anzac and learn about Australian military history with the Shrine’s new Family Trail, full of educational and inspiring activities for families to do together.

Explore the Shrine’s building, gardens and memorials, discover the wartime jobs for men and women, and find out about the role fulfilled by animals during times of conflict. Families will have the opportunity to participate in a short commemorative ceremony featuring the Ray of Light.

All families who complete the spring school holiday program will receive a goody bag, Anzac biscuits and entry into a prize draw to win a $500 RACV Resorts voucher.

The Shrine of Remembrance would like to acknowledge the support of the RACV as competition sponsor for the spring school holiday program.
