Adopt a WW1 Veteran



Our school has an amazing memorial board dedicated to the “old boys” from Moorefields School who served in World War 1.

We will be researching these men to see what they got up to in WW1.

You will need to go straight to this site to search a data base for the information you will need.

National Archives

1. Go to the site


3. Type in  the veteran’s surname

4. Type in the dates from 1914 to 1920

5. Click SEARCH

6. Click on the digital version icon

7. Now you have your veteran’s service records and information!


An interesting site that you may like to explore is the “Adopt a Veteran” Page which is part of the NSW Government ANZAC Commemoration site.

Peter Dalton and the Call to War


Hello Stage 3 people,

I found this great interactive site about a boy deciding if he should enlist in the army and go to the First World War.

There are some interesting interactives to look at – background information about how the war started, who the enemy countries were, what Australia was like at the time.

Please spend some time looking through the information to broaden your knowledge about WW1, and think about the advice you would give to Peter Dalton.

What would you do??

Unfortunately the site does not work on the iPads, so you will need to use another type of tech to access the site.

Have fun :-)

The Lorax


Many students in S23Jade have been thinking and talking about the environmental issues raised in the Dr Seuss story “The Lorax”.

They have discussed, acted out and spoken at a town meeting using the different perspectives of the creatures involved in the story.

As a “wrap up” activity students were asked to design a Thneed Factory that was more environmentally positive and sustainable than the one in the story. They were asked to consider the energy used, the pollution released and the effect on the living creatures around the factory, the noise and the transportation of the finished Thneeds around the country.

There were many fantastic ideas and suggestions made by the students – please look at the following pictures of parts of their work.


What do you think? What would you do to improve the environment at the Thneed Factory? Leave a comment below.

Beautiful Book Week Artworks


What a talented group of people we have here at school. Each class chose a shortlisted book and worked collaboratively in their classes to design and make an artwork around their book.

You can see the fabulous results below:

Thank you to everyone involved!
