ANZAC Day 2020

Despite what is happening in the world right now, it is important for us to commemorate ANZAC Day.

We’re keen to hear your ideas on how you think this could be done – and we’ll add them to the list below as a range of ideas.

You will still be able to earn the 2020 Their Service, Our Heritage Badge. The requirements of this badge is to participate in up to three activities which reflect the ANZAC Spirit, which could be easily adapted for Scouting@Home.

ome examples include:

  • Take part in the ANZAC Day end of your driveway vigil;
  • Visit the Virtual War Memorial Australia in an online meeting;
  • Build an ANZAC Day wreath and create a small memorial in your yard;
  • Make ANZAC biscuits and discuss their history in an online meeting;
  • Show the ANZAC Spirit by checking in with an older Australian, or family member by phone or online;
  • Create a care pack that could be sent to a Veterans Home or the local RSL Sub Branch; or,
  • Donate to the ANZAC Appeal.

Pop-Up Poppies for ANZAC Day

Scouts SA and the City of Marion Council are encouraging families to decorate their gardens, fences and houses with red poppies to honour the ANZACs this year.

Anyone can take part and can embrace this as a simple way to show your respect on Anzac Day. We would love to see your photos and your welcome to share them with us on social media!

James from Hallett Cove Scout Group has created a step by step guide to make some poppies, click here.

For more information the flyer can be found here or for other ideas head to the City of Marion website for more templates and a video
