Working with HSIE curriculum consultants from Learning and Leadership, Public Schools NSW, the Anzac project idea was developed by focusing on the challenges faced by Australians during times of war. Schools responded to the stimulus in a range of unique ways. The resulting exhibition on the Grand Concourse of Central Station revealed an array of stunning commemorations created by 600 students and 46 teachers from 24 schools across the state. Anzac songs, poems, plays, videos and images of school Anzac ceremonies from metropolitan and rural and remote areas were featured. The display also included archival images supplied by the Hay War Memorial High School, which was built in 1923 as a living memorial to the men and women of the local area who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the First World War. The display struck an immediate chord with the travelling public as people of all ages were drawn to the exhibit and many had emotional responses to reading through the projects.
