Dear Australian friends,
For those who do not yet know me, my name is Guillaume Fournet, I am a teacher in the class of CM1 at the Victoria School in Villers-Bretonneux, France (9 to 10 years old pupils).
In recent years, I have collected addresses of our Australian friends who came to visit or sent us mail so that I can keep them up to date with events linked to Australia.
For the centenary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux and ANZAC Day, our class has produced a 25 minute long documentary called DO NOT FORGET AUSTRALIA, the duty of remembrance in Villers-Bretonneux.
The pupils and myself are extremely proud to present this film, which won the Sadlier-Stokes award in this centenary year! We will be given our prize on 25 April by an Australian personality: his excellence the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull just after the commemoration at the Memorial!
Watching the film, you will follow the pupils as they make moving discoveries: the Australian National Memorial, Adelaïde Cemetery, the Franco-Australian Museum, the Victoria School.
The film is subtitled in english.
If you enjoy it, you are kindly asked to share it with your contacts, and with as many schools as possible. This will allow to highlight the work of our little French pupils of Villers-Bretonneux and participate in the duty of remembrance!
With our kind regards,
the pupils of the class of CM1 from the Victoria School and their teacher, Mister Fournet.
