We recently visited École la Chapelette in Peronne which is partnered with St Patrick’s Primary in the little coastal village of Port Fairy in south-west Victoria.
The Port Fairy students have thrown themselves into the project, writing letters and inscribing small wooden crosses with special commemorative messages. They hope the students at la Chapelette will also write a special message and then place their crosses on a soldier’s grave and ask the question – who are you? They will then promise to research this soldier and share their findings with their partner school.
The Port Fairy students can’t wait to hear from their partners in France who are currently on summer holidays.
