A local classrooms work will be displayed in the Community Mandurah Museum in the holiday as part of the city’s Anzac Day celebrations.
The North Mandurah Primary School year three class have been busy making poems about Gallipoli and the experience of soldiers.
Teacher Shari Longden said they each made a poem in their own words after watching an educational video on World War I and learning about the struggles our ancestors faced.
She said the poems would be on show at the museum in the April School holidays along with other student work submitted by schools in the region.
Year three student Elijah Green said the project helped him advance his writing and art skills.
“It was good, we got to get better at drawing and also writing,” he said.
Fellow student Lexi Lambert agreed. “We got to do an outline on the page to make it look old and the pages look like they have been rained on,” she said.
“We watched a tape and we saw that people thought it was fun but it actually wasn’t. They were lying about their age to join their family.”
