The Baradene College students placed a wreath on the grave of a New Zealand soldier named John King in a cemetery in northern France. He was executed because he deserted. He was the first New Zealand soldier to be executed during WWI.

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.
