It is offical! British nurse, Edith Cavell, will be featured on a new commemorative £5 coin next year. The Royal Mint will issue a set of coins to commemorate the centenary of World War I.
During her work as a nurse in German-occupied Belgium, Edith helped save many lives of the soldiers from both sides.
Her courage and dedication is an inspirational life story this honor is well deserved.
For many countries, including Australians, this is a momentous occasion. The First World War touched the lives of so many people.
It is paramount that we commemorate those who sacrificed their lives during those four years from 1914 to 1918.
- Your class can research WWI and read about the soldiers, nurses and civilians who showed great strength and courage during the war.
- What do your students feel when they read about the devastation that war has created and the lives lost?
