Gift for an Active Australian Soldier (deployed overseas)

Jarryd and Jess write:

As part of their involvement in leading the school’s ANZAC Day service, the Year 6 students worked with Jarryd and Jess to put together a care package to send to an Australian soldier deployed overseas. After considering what the soldiers might be missing from home, and brainstorming what to include, we settled on:

– Biscuits

– Caramello Koalas

– Playing cards

– Uno

– A DVD

– Socks

– Chewing gum

The boys also wrote messages of thanks in a card for the soldier. This was a fantastic opportunity for the students to feel personally connected to the ANZAC tradition. They demonstrated great care and consideration, and it provided a wonderful opportunity to open up a dialogue about the experience of soldiers deployed away from home. Many of the initial suggestions to include in the care package also gave a great insight into what the students themselves would feel comforted by if they were away from home.

 

With any luck, we will hear back from the soldier who receives the package, and an opportunity to further connect and share in a dialogue with them will present itself!
