Schools - Melbourne Legacy

Legacy began with a mates promise to a dying soldier on a battlefield during World War One 'to look after his missus and kids'.

Today, Legacy continues to honour that promise and cares for more than 70,000 families of Australian Defence Force men and women who have lost their life or health serving our nation.

Through the generosity of public donations, Legacy's dedicated personal service and compassion ensures families are not disadvantaged or alone.

Legacy's school activities will enhance and enrich class room learning for your students and bring to life the efforts and sacrifices of our brave men and women.
