Students become historians for Anzac centenary

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The individual names of those men and women who served in World War I so far mean little to the children of Maitland.
But as the world prepares for the Anzac centenary one school will embark on a project to unearth the forgotten stories of the war.
Next year, Thornton Public School ­students will take part in the Find Them Remember Them program to create a living memorial to local soldiers and nurses of their district.
The project has been developed by John Gillam and Yvonne Fletcher, co-authors of Their Story: Service Sacrifice & Community Support 1914-1915.
