Shrine School Holiday Program

Explore the Shrine with Lofty the Light Horse

Shrine-Childrens-TourThe Shrine of Remembrance school holiday programs are an ideal way for families with children aged 6-12 to participate in remembrance and discover the spirit of ANZAC.

Young families can explore the Shrine of Remembrance this summer with the help of Lofty the Light Horse and Pat, an Australian Light Horse soldier. Pick up the Children’s Tour book from the Visitor Centre and navigate around the Shrine through a series of fun and educational questions; find out about Australian military history and the importance of the Shrine in remembering our servicemen and women.

All families who complete the tour will receive a Shrine Explorer Bag with lots of great information and goodies. All participants will be entered into a draw to win one of three Friends of the Shrine Family Memberships.

If you need any help or have any questions Shrine Visitor Services staff and volunteers will be on hand to offer assistance.
