  1. ANZAC means A stands for Australia N stands for new Z stands for Zealand A stands for Army and C stands for Corps. I think that ANZAC day is very important because the soldiers fought for us to get freedom and because thousands of people died for us people that are living now. I feel upset that people died in the war just for us people living now.

    1. Good comment Chloe, your information is correct. Feel the same way you do, upset, it is not fair that they died protecting us and everyone else.

  2. ANZAC day is when we should feel proud of the soldiers that fought in the war because they really helped us to be free in Australia, I also feel sad for the ones who actually died in the war.

    1. Tahlia, this a good little comment about ANZAC day, but you need to add more to make it better. It is still good though, but once again you need to add more.

  3. ANZAC day is a day to remember all of the soldiers that died, got injured, or survived the war. The war happened on April 25 1914 located at Gallipoli. There were many ages that fought in the war, not just the older ones that are more experienced, some 16 year olds lied about their age, and didn’t know how bad it would really be. The families sent letters to each other, saying what is happening during the time. Surprisingly, many people still survived ANZAC day, which means they lived through nuclear bombs, gun shots, and watching many people die. I feel sad about this, but many people were very brave. If it weren’t for these incredible soldiers, Australia wouldn’t be the same now.

    LEST WE FORGET.

    1. Great comment Jay, it is a long paragraph with correct information, where WW1 started, how people lied about their age to join, you have great description about them. Super.

  4. ANZAC

    ANZAC day to me means that it is a day that everybody remembers all the people that were in the world war one and world war two. I think ANZAC day should be a day of silence and that everybody should respect all the people that died to save Australia and the people that died to give Australia freedom. I think that ANZAC day is a really important day because lots of people gave up their lives just to save and to give freedom to Australia. ANZAC day is a day the Australia commemorates for the people that fought for our country in the world war. If I was in the world war one I wouldn’t want to be in it because it is a really scary place to be and it would be really hard for people to come back alive since there are a lot of people with guns and bombs.

    1. Nyetap that is a great comment, great and correct information, a long paragraph, a great explanation and a great description about what it would be like if you were there. Once again great comment.

  5. I feel sad for the ones who died in war and for the ones that survived.
    I think that it would be hard to go to sleep with all the bombs going cam boom and the guns going bang bang bang bang.

    1. Good little comment about ANZAC day, you have correct information and spelling and you have felt for the people that died. Once again good short comment.

  6. Sometimes I feel lonely and empty hearted thinking that there are all these people that might have been terribly injured or worst. I think everyone needs to respect everyone that fraught in the war to save our gorgeous country and fight for there and our freedom. I feel cheerful that all of the men were brave enough to fight for the country.

    1. Brittney that is a very descriptive comment, you have what you feel about ANZAC day. You have written ” I fell lonely and empty hearted thinking that there are all these people that might have been terribly injured or worse.” That is an outstanding sentence, and your paragraph is just as good, you should feel proud of yourself.

  7. ANZAC DAY: The word ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps. I feel sorry to all the people who fought in the war died. I feel sorry to all the people who lost their friends, brothers, sisters who were killed in medical units, I feel sorry to the wives who lost their husband and children in the war.
    Why do we have ANZAC day? We have ANZAC day to remember the nurses and soldiers who died in the war, we remember the soldiers who fought for our freedom.

  8. ANZAC day was to remember all the soldiers who went to war that died bravely during the wars. ANZAC day stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps I feel proud that people were actually brave enough to fight these wars and to make the ultimate sacrifice just to save our country. The First World War happened on the 25th of April at a place called ‘Gallipoli’ where over 20,000 soldiers died fighting for their country. I also felt surprised when I got told when over 20,000 soldiers died just to save our country. These people have made the ultimate sacrifice and I feel amazed.

    1. Travis that is a great paragraph about ANZAC day, it is very descriptive and very informative. Super job 10/10.

  9. I feel sad for the people that died in the war because they had a family that loves them and some died so young.
    I think that the people in the war didn’t want to go to the war because they all wanted to go home to their family and they also want to fight for their land.

    1. Shani, I am going to comment on your second one because it has more information. Not that this is bad, it is actually very good.

  10. ANZAC day is a national day of remanmangre in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on the 25th of April. I feel so sad for this amazing and brave people fought for our country. We need to show respect this people because they saved our life.

    1. Karim, this a good shot report on ANZAC day, but you have some incorrect words for example, I feel so sad for this amazing and brave people fought for our country. The this in that sentence needs to be changed to these. In your first sentence you have a word that doesn’t make sense and it is spelt incorrect. I think it is suppose to say remembrance, you spelt the word remanmangre. Your last sentence sais ” We need to show respect this people because they saved our life.” That is a magnificent sentence Karim, well done.

  11. ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. I feel sad for the people that went to war and they didn’t come back and they died there.
    I feel sad for the boy from ‘My Mother’s eyes’, who died in the story.

    1. Nyanom, I agree that ANZAC day is one of Australia’s most important national days, but you need to expand, put more detail and have more information. Other then that great comment Nyanom.

  12. I think that ANZAC day is about when the people and died because of our country, so they saved our country from an invasion from another country so we can live happy and free all we want for the rest of our life till we die. I feel sad that the people that went to the war if they were 16 or above they will be remembered in our heart forever.

    1. Great comment about ANZAC day Leigham, you have very descriptive words and descriptive sentences. You have touching sentences. For example, they saved our country from an invasion from another country so we can live happy and free all we want for the rest of our life till we die. That is a brilliant sentence. Well done.

  13. I think that ANZAC day is remembering all the people that died in the war and giving them respect for all the stuff they did to help our country to me more multicultural so that made our country what it is today so we thank you for all for everything. I think that it should be celebrate because they for fo are freedom so it really in portent to celebrate it.

    1. Great comment Guguei, you have a really good first sentence. It sais ” I think that ANZAC day is remembering all the people that died in the war and giving them respect for all the stuff they did to help our country to me more multicultural so that made our country what it is today so we thank you for all for everything. That sentence is brilliant, although you need to delete one of the for’s in your first sentence. In your second sentence I think that fo was supposed to be fought and then you need to swap those two around. It is still an awesome sentence.

  14. Anzac day makes me feel sad because all of the soldiers fought in the war for us, we should be thankful.

  15. Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national commemorative occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.Anzac Day falls on the 25th of April each year. The 25th of April was officially named Anzac Day in 1916. Anzac Day remembrance takes two forms. Commemorative.

    1. Nyanom, this a brilliant comment about ANZAC day, you have lots of great correct information, you have correct punctuation and spelling except for two things. One, you need to put a space between a full stop and the word ANZAC. Two, the word falls should be changed to is. Still this is an awesome comment. Well done Nyanom.

  16. ANZAC day is a day where we remember the men that fought for our freedom. A lot of men during the war lost there lives.On the 25th of April every year we celebrate and honor there lives that they sacrificed on our behalf. On ANZAC we show our respect to the men and women who continue to fight for our county.

  17. I feel sad for the people that died in the war because they had a family that loves them and some died so young.
    I think that the people in the war didn’t want to go to the war because they all wanted to go home to their family and they also want to fight for their land.
    A: stands for Australia,
    N: stands for new,
    Z: stands for Zealand,

    C: stands for Corps,

  18. ANZAC day is remembering all the people that fought for us, that were trying to save our country, letting no-one harm us. I think that ANZAC day is important because we have time to thank those people that fort for us and saved our country. These people have done an amazing job. I don’t think that our world would have been safe without them. It is sad that people passed away and got badly hurt whilst fighting. I think that we should all be thankful that they gave up their lives for us. I feel sorry for the families that have lost their brother, sister, mother, father and the rest of your family. What they did was brave and outstanding. We should be very proud of them. On April the 25th we celebrate for those that fought for us. We should all be respectful to these people. This makes me feel sad because some of the people that have died were only like 16. we should all be greatful and show respect.
