Call for school projects 2014-2015

This call for projects is initiated jointly by the French Ministry of Education, the New Zealand Ministry of Education, the Victoria Department of Education, the New South Wales Department of Education, the New Zealand Association of French Teachers, the Federation of Associations of Teachers of French in Australia, and the Embassies of France in Australia and New Zealand, with the support of WW100NZ and the Mission du Centenaire de la Première guerre mondiale.

As part of the commemoration of the First World War, secondary schools in France, New Zealand and Australia are invited to engage in collaborative projects on WW1. Selected projects may be eligible for financial support.

This call for projects aims to raise awareness among young New Zealand, Australian and French people about the contribution of the ANZAC in the fighting on the western front during WW1 and to highlight the historical links created between the three countries on this occasion. It seeks to bring together New Zealand, Australian and French youths to revive the memory of this major period of both countries’ common history and to explore its profound significance and impact.
