Sharing the pride and spirit that is carried in our history

Please be part of helping our school children engage in this last year of the 2014-2018 Centenary by gifting an Australia in the Great War uniformed bear through AnzacBears.com.au to your local primary school or to the school you attended. You’ll be giving teachers and kids a truly engaging way to connect to the stories of our past. Help us share Australia’s Great War story in every classroom.
