Schools now have the opportunity to take part in a suite of workshops, seminars and events, led by the Anzac Memorial’s team of specialist educators and artists in our state-of-the-art Auditorium. 

At the heart of the Anzac Memorial is a commitment to remember the courage, endurance and sacrifice of Australian Anzacs – both past and present. We understand that when communicated well, our Anzac stories provide insights into the human condition that will inspire young people and may help them navigate the challenges and complexities of their own lives in the 21st century.

Through imaginative and inspiring approaches, our aim is to open up the skills and resources within the Anzac Memorial and provide opportunities for students and teachers to explore our history, artwork, artefacts and architecture in creative and engaging ways.

Our workshops are creative, inquiry led and object based, all linked to the NSW syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. They take place in our new space for learning, a state-of-the-art auditorium, offering a flexible environment for interactive and engaging workshops.
