Here is some ways to show bravery and courage



ANZAC Day celebrates the bravery and courage of the Australian and New Zealand Soldiers as they battled in tough conditions, against an enemy with all of the advantages. They fought hard for each other, and for their countries. It is hard for us to imagine what was going through their minds in this situation, but we know for sure that the courage and bravery they showed are traits that we should aspire to have.


Your task is to respond to this question in full PEEL Paragraph form;

How can BRAVERY & COURAGE  help us to achieve our own goals in life?
