Australian Wartime Experiences
Students research Australia’s wartime history and gain an understanding of the service and sacrifice of the men and women who served Australia in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations
The 2017 theme is Making a Better World?
Australian wartime experiences can include events, the contribution of individuals and/or particular groups such as leaders, women, Indigenous etc. You might research a theme such as innovation during wartime.
In considering your research for the Australian Wartime Experiences category, you may wish to investigate some of the following:
– Describe how an individual, group or event in Australia’s wartime experience has made the world better.
– To what extent did an individual, group or event in Australia’s wartime experience make the world better?
– Investigate an aspect of Australia’s wartime experience and challenge whether or not it contributed to a ‘better’ world. Consider the definition of ‘better’.
If you enter this category, you must consider how Australian wartime experiences made a better world at a specific point in time.
The purpose of commemoration within the Department of Veterans’ Affairs is to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have served. All responses need to be respectful of this.
You will be required to show evidence of visiting resources on the Anzac Portal
