Anzac Day


On the 25th of April we remember the sacrifice thousands of Australian men and women have made, fighting for their country. We particularly commemorate the arrival of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers at Gallipoli.

To mark this special day, 3/4NB made delicious ANZAC biscuits.

We used a recipe from for “Chewy Anzac Biscuits”. Year 3/4 NB comment below about the taste of the ANZAC biscuits!

Here are some photos of the baking experience! (a copy of the recipe is below)
