ANZAC Day whilst Scouting @ Home

What happens when a global pandemic limits face-to-face interaction? The Scouting community, globally, turns to Scouting at home.

Here at Scouts Australia, we have compiled a range of programs and resources to support Scouting as we work through the different phases of community and social distancing, and self-isolation.

 

This year we are going to participate in ANZAC Day differently but just as meaningfully. We have no public events to attend, nor can we meet together as Units or Groups, however, we can still participate in the Remembrance ceremony from home.

There are many great initiatives by other Scouting members and the RSL which you may chose to take part in. These add to the ideas already circulated. This resource, provided by Jane Hamilton from Hampton Park Scout Group, Scouts WA, outlines what you can do in the lead-up and on ANZAC Day.

 

How will you pay tribute this ANZAC Day?

To achieve the Their Service, Our Heritage Badge:

Discuss with your leaders what they would like you to do. Some suggestions are:

  • Take of photo of you and your family doing the ANZAC Ceremony on your driveway on the day.
  • Take a photo of your vigil candle and your awesome breakfast!
  • Share what you did to encourage your family or your neighbours to participate.
  • Make a floral wreath and with your family, visit your local memorial and lay it there. Take a photo. (Remember the social distancing rules still apply)
  • If you know someone in the Armed Forces, do a video link and a chat with them about their experiences. Take a screen shot with their permission. And don’t forget to thank them for their service.
