  • On Tuesday 25 April 2023 communities all over Adelaide will remember and honour the brave soldiers who fought (and still fight to this day) for our country. The RSL South Australia Dawn Services, ANZAC march & Cross of Sacrifice services will be happening. Keep an eye on the RSLSA page for more info as it becomes available. Make 2023 the year we get to take our kids to a Dawn Service and further teach them the importance of this day. A particular favourite for the Kids in Adelaide team is the ANZAC Day service at the Light Horse Memorial in the CBD East parklands. Starting at a family friendly time of 8am, easy nearby parking, a short and sharp service, and with a team of horses on site (that the kids can feed/pat after the service!) this one can't be beaten - more details on this service here If you are stuck in isolation or can't get to a Dawn Service, you are encouraged to stand at the end of your driveway (or on a balcony on in the living room) at 6am with a candle to honour all who have served us.

And partly because of the guaranteed sheen of rain on the pavement, the breath of the crowd rising into the dawn air…. the constant reminders that we are alive. Thinking of those we have lost. The services have been moving due to the sheer number and range of people gathered. Young and old. Uggboots and dressing gowns. Beanies and scarves. Prams and bikes. I’ve always found the services a bit overwhelming but since having Elka I can barely bite back the tears. Just imagine losing your child to war. What horror and torment it must cause. It breaks my heart. One of the most meaningful parts of the services to me are when students and children lay wreaths and read poems. But by far, the most heart-wrenching part is the music. Whether it’s through voice or solely instrumental, I find this part deeply moving. My poppa was a Rat…
