REMEMBRANCE WALK FOR SCHOOLS

Your school can help Legacy families, by participating in this year’s Remembrance Walk.

Legacy’s Remembrance Walk will give students a chance to reflect, a chance to learn and an opportunity to raise much needed funds for Legacy, one of Australia’s oldest and most respected charities. Legacy’s Remembrance Walk is an event designed to help the community understand what Legacy does, who Legacy helps, and to remember what our Australian Defence Force personnel have sacrificed, and what their families go through, particularly the children.

HOW CAN YOUR SCHOOL GET INVOLVED?

Register to walk at your school, get everyone involved; raise funds and walk with your school mates on Monday 11th November, finishing at 11.00am with a minutes silence.

  • Free for schools to register, however a gold coin donation would be appreciated
  • Register your school for Legacy’s Remembrance Walk or you can email us and we can register you
  • If you can’t walk on Remembrance Day (11.11.20) choose a suitable day that suits
  • We ask schools to include the minute silence as part of their walk/fundraiser
  • Encourage students to do a project; research their ties to those who served in the ADF and/or have had a family member, grandparents, parents, aunties, uncles, cousins cared for by Legacy.
  • The Australian War Memorial has quite a few suggestions for class projects, please click here to view
  • Get everyone involved; students, teachers, administrative staff and the school community
  • You may also choose to fundraise in the lead up or on the day by having a
    • casual clothes day
    • sausage sizzle
    • or a cake stall

 

WHY SHOULD YOU GET INVOLVED?

The benefits for getting involved are many; but here are just a few good reasons:

  1. Education and social awareness for the students; helping students remember our Veteran forefathers, those who lost their life or gave their health in service and defence of our country and their families.
  2. An opportunity to have a speaker from Legacy come to your school to talk to the students about our Defence Force and the history of Legacy, Legacy’s programs, services and support.
  3. Community Social Responsibility, having your school support Legacy’s Remembrance Walk can generate some great news stories for your school newsletter and local paper.
  4. Mate-ship; students, teachers and the extended school community to walk together to raise awareness and funds for Legacy one of Australia’s oldest charities.
  5. Schools will receive a certificate of appreciation, as well as a template certificate to give to each of the participating students.
