The students are sending messages of love to fallen Soldiers


Around 2,000 wooden crosses bearing wires from school learners over the nation will be put on the graves of Australian officers around the globe. 

The Australian War Memorial today stuffed up the little crosses enhanced with the learners' notes and a lone red poppy, to be transported to what was the Western Front throughout World War I. 

The crosses will be put on the graves of Australian warriors throughout 2013's Anzac Day services. 

Remembrance Director Dr Brendan Nelson states today's understudies are more captivated with history than numerous grown-ups give them acknowledgement for. 

"I suspect in the mature person planet we could be excused for feeling that little individuals aren't thinking as profoundly as we'd like them to," he stated. 

"At the same time you've just got to face the memos composed on the aforementioned crosses to acknowledge that time of this country is in exceptionally great hands. 

"Everything I can state is to the educators of, and positively folks of the very nearly 2,000 school scholars who've composed the aforementioned wires on the aforementioned crosses, you could be colossally glad for them, in light of the fact that I absolutely am."
