5000 Poppies Project

As you all know, ANZAC Day 2015 is the centenary of the ill-fated landing at ANZAC Cove, in Gallipoli. To commemorate this important day in Australia and New Zealand’s history, ANZA Action and the Australian International School together with its Parents Association (AISPA) are working on a fantastic community project. You may have seen the fields of poppies on show in London; well, we will be doing our very own version of this, following the 5000 Poppies project which was started in Victoria.
ANZA Action is working with the community in Singapore to provide opportunities to learn, make poppies, and contribute to this fantastic community event. Craft days will be held at AIS on Saturday 14th and 28th Feb and will be open to all. Craft kits will be available to buy on the days, or you can make your own: 5000poppies.wordpress.com/poppy-patterns
How can you help? We will need people to make up the kits for sale, people to help teach at the craft days, people to make poppies at the craft days or at home, people to help assemble the ‘fields’. For more information or to volunteer your time or expertise, please email anzaaction@anza.org.sg.
Completed poppies can be delivered to the ANZA Office.
