Gaythorne RSL Sub-Branch ANZAC Day Writers' Competition


To commemorate ANZAC Day, the Gaythorne RSL Sub-Branch holds an annual writing competition to encourage school students to learn more about the work undertaken by Australia's Defence Forces and to learn about and honour past and present campaigns.  This is a voluntary competition, however, Mitchie strongly encourages and supports students entering this event.  Commencing in 2010, some of the themes have been, "What does ANZAC Day mean to me?", "Why are the Army, Navy and Air Force important to Australia?" and "What roles have women played in wars and peacekeeping missions in which Australia has been involved?".
