ANZAC DAY COMMEMORATION
Friday, 25 April 2014
9.00 am to 11.00 am
at the Citadel Church and the Danish WWII Memorial to “Our Fallen”
Australian and New Zealand citizens, and other interested members of the public, are invited to attend the 2014 ANZAC commemoration and wreath laying.
Please RSVP to the Australian Embassy by email: email@example.com
or by telephone: +45 7026 3676, no later than Tuesday 15 April 2014.
• Please aim to arrive by 8.45 am as the service begins promptly at 9.00 am
• Public transport is recommended (please see map attached); parking is limited and there is no public parking inside the Kastellet.
• Part of the ceremony and refreshments will be outdoors, please dress accordingly.
Information for persons with restricted mobility and parents of young children:
• There will be a short (3-5 minute) walk, over cobblestones, from the Citadel Church to the Memorial to “Our Fallen” for the wreath laying. If you have mobility issues, you may wish to have a caregiver accompany you.
• We ask that parents please pay close attention to their children at the site of the Memorial to WWII Fallen (also where refreshments will be served from 10.00 am) due to the proximity of water and possible vehicular traffic.
We look forward to seeing you on 25 April – “Lest we forget”.
The Australian Embassy is keen to assist in any way that we can to promote the teachings of Australian history and culture. For that purpose, we have assembled some collections (flags, posters, books, etc.) which may be of use to you if you are a school, an organisation or individuals, who are studying or working with an Australian theme.
Some of our items you can borrow, but some of the items that we have you can have to keep. If you are a school, and you have a recurring theme about Australia, please contact us if you would like us to assist you in gathering a more permanent inventory to teach about Australia.
We are very proud of our Indigenous Kit, which will be familiar to many of the schools which have borrowed it over the years. It contains real boomerangs, indigenous musical instruments, informations booklets and other fabulous items, which gives your class a better feel and understanding of Australian aboriginal culture.
However, because of the high demand, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible if you would like to borrow it. For that same reason, you can only borrow it for 2 weeks at a time.
Here is a little look at what we currently have in our Embassy, which you can borrow:
- DVDs on Australian movies, culture, education, nature and study options
- CDs with Aboriginal and Australian folk songs
- Books: children books (in English) with Aboriginal themes, books on Australian nature, culture, architecture, language and history.
- Flags (fabric and paper), posters, pull-ups (for larger displays) and small stuffed animals
For a full listing, please have a look at our current exhibitions and resource kits.
If you are interested in teaching Aboriginal Studies - or have more background knowledge about Australian Aboriginal culture, you can download the "Teachers Notes" from the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Studies press. This is in collaboration with different schools in Australia, who teach Aboriginal culture.
The Australian Embassy has a desire to assist in the promotion of Australian events all around Denmark, Norway and Iceland. If you are an artist or if you are organising an event, please let us know! We can help spread the word through the social email list - Sign up for the VEGEMITE LIST
NOTE: The Embassy is not an advertising agency. If you want to promote an event via the Embassy, the event must be seen to be of interest to the Australian community.
