Gallipoli dawn service: The momentous day arrives

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Five students selected to visit the Gallipoli battlefields where their ancestors fought 100 years ago had another important mission - to report the key events of their tour.
The students have spent time at the Mercury with editor Eve Nesmith as they prepare to be cadet journalists for the trip.
Ms Nesmith said all the students had done a great deal of research and what they recorded on their trip would be important to young people in the Hunter.
This tour of the Gallipoli war front appears unprecedented in Australia, with 20 schools from throughout the Hunter Valley represented.
The five cadet journalists are Lauren Wood from St Phillip's Christian College, Jack Olive from Francis Greenway High School, Scarlett Budden from Maitland Christian School, Adam Robinson from Cessnock High and Georgia Filis from All Saints College St Peter's Campus.
