“31st May 1942, The day the War came to Sydney”   

The Australia My Country (AMC) Competition is sponsored annually by the Forestville RSL sub-Branch and is designed to enhance the sense of pride and patriotism of participants by commemorating, through writing and art, Australia’s proud military heritage.  The Competition is open to Year 3 to 6 students of the Primary schools located within our defined geographic area and is run in conjunction with the principals and teachers of those participating schools.

The topic for the AMC Competition is selected annually by the sub-Branch Committee and participants can choose between written work (composition or poetry) or art works to meet the Competition requirements.

The topic for 2022 is “31st May 1942, the day the War came to Sydney”.
