Daisies 1, 2 and 3

School holiday break and ANZAC Day here in New Zealand on Monday.  Yes the boys are on a two week holiday break at present and start back for Term 2 at the beginning of May.  Monday 25th April was ANZAC Day where we remember all of the soldiers the went to war for New Zealand, it's observed on 25th April each year and ANZAC Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

We wear a Red Poppy as a symbol of war remembrance.
