The commemoration of ANZAC Day is always a special event in our calendar and while we will miss the gathering at dawn to remember those who sacrificed so much, for the generations that followed them and whose legacy impacts us all today. We hope you will find your own special way to remember them.
The Australian War Memorial has created a special website hub “Anzac at Home” which provides a variety of ways for you to honour this important day: https://www.awm.gov.au/anzacathome

2015 ANZAC Centenary John Monash Scholar Dr Phoebe Williams writes on how COVID-19 is impacting children
Dr Phoebe Williams is a paediatrician at a Sydney Hospital and has a PhD in clinical infectious diseases. As Australians struggle to adapt to the new normal of working from home, many families find themselves juggling the stress and disruption to routine due to children at home and increased workloads. This secondary effect of COVID-19 has left children more vulnerable as unsupervised injuries rise and isolation takes a toll on the mental health of teenagers. In Phoebe's opinion piece written for The Sydney Morning Herald, she appeals to parents to feel confident in bringing their children to hospital and that they will be cared for with adequate resources.
