une autre vision de notre travail : les petits formats sur lesquels nous avons représenté et peint de scènes de la vie civile, des familles contrastant avec les plaques de terre qui symbolisent plus le front. Ces plaques de céramique vont elles aussi être cuites , faisant ainsi ressortir les couleurs et en leur donnant un aspect brillant. Après l'inauguration, nous posterons des photos de la fresque achevée et complète. Elle sera installée à l'intérieure de notre lycée, visible par tous mais...
Des extraits des poèmes et lettres des élèves du LGT GAY LUSSAC de CHAUNY, d'EPSOM GIRLS GRAMMAR SCHOOL d'AUCKLAND et du GUTENBERG GYMNASIUM de BERGHEIM apparaîtronten français, anglais et allemand sur les pavés de verre reflétant les dessins de la base en terre symbolisant le front.
Mercredi dernier a eu lieu la dernière séance d'atelier avant la cuisson des dernières plaques et l'assemblage par Hubert Dufour. Nous avons tous hâte de découvrir le résultat final en compagnie de nos amies d'EPSOM GIRLS GRAMMAR SCHOOL qui arrivent maintenant dans deux semaines.
Nous sommes également occupés à préparer leur accueil, à finaliser l'exposition et impatients de les rencontrer.

Today all of the students got to see the book. Everyone was excited to see the section they had written and to find thier name as an author at the back of the book. Our task today for the project was to post two copied to the National Library of New Zealand. This is called the "Legal Deposit" and is required under law in New Zealand when you get an ISBN number for the book. It means that two copies will be forever kept in the Bational Library for researchers to reference.
Photo of our book. Today we were able to get the book from the printing company.
The book cover has an image by a New Zealand artist John Z. Robinson. The image is a linocut print. The image is of Field Punishment No.1. This punishment was used to discipline soldiers and four of the New Zealand concientious objectors were also made to undergo this for periods of 28 days at a time.
Another preview of our book. This time the pages show photos of Archibald Baxter and Mark Briggs (two conscientious objectors sent to the Western Front) and a great photo we sourced from Puke Ariki Museum of a NZ soldier on the duckboard at the front line. Briggs was dragged over this, the nails on it digging into his flesh and creating huge wounds. Baxter was marched to the front line in order to try to "break his will" to resist military service. In the end he got left there, and wandered...
The photo shows pages from our book that we are publishing as part of our Shared Histories Project. The book will be launched when we are in Chauny, France. The photo shows a section of the book written by the French students in Chauny who researched the execution of a group of soldiers in Vingré. These are known as the Martyrs of Vingré [Martyrs de Vingré]. The book is bilingual in French and English.
Les Martyrs de Vingré sont six poilus, le caporal Paul Henry Floch et les soldats Jean...
After a slow start in 2015 we are now back with new plans, new people and new partners: The exchange of fictitious letters has started with our first postcards. Our new partner for this project is the lycée Senghor in Etouvie, and we are excited to welcome Katrina and her team to the poppelicot project.
We continue to cooperate with the collège Etouvie in Amiens with whom we are still planning the recipe book. This is becoming a truly interdisciplinary project, and at St...
Our final look at what our book will look like arrived form the printing company. We got to have a look at this and a final check of it. The French language section has a blue background now which makes the book look really good. Photo shows Dani and Rose looking at the book.
Mr Gallop is our French language teacher who is coming on our trip to France. In the photo he is wearing the Trip Shirt that we have all been given by the travel company "Defining Moments". It has the Shared History logo on the arm of the shirt and our school name, as well as the "silver fern", a national symbol of New Zealand.
