Maitland's bells will toll to remember the beginning of WWI

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The bells will toll throughout Maitland tomorrow as residents stop to commemorate 100 years since the start of World War I.
And as Australia’s oldest continually operating public school, Largs  is proud to take part in the communal ceremony.
“It’s great that a significant part of our historical school [the 175-year-old school bell] has motivated the students to learn about and participate in such an important part of Australian history,” principal Sharon Palmer said
