The website states:

This project aims to create a space where students from around the world can share stories and experiences, linking the local and the global in an on-line environment and create their own response to honouring the service and sacrifice of veterans and those affected by war to express their hopes for lasting peace.

The Innovation and Next Practice Division of the DEECD states

It is not only intended for students, adults can participate as well. Over the coming months it will be supported with a range of learning and teaching materials.

An excellent resource for schools!
