Fun: Dhurringile and Longwood Primary school students enjoy dress up at the Longwood Community Centre that hosted a Shrine of Remembrance exhibition.

Oscar Harrison learns about Australian war history and tries on a replica soldier's uniform.

Nurse Ellie Merriman reports for duty.

Dhurringile Primary School travelled to Longwood Community Centre to learn from a travelling exhibition from Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance on Monday last week.

The students joined with Longwood Primary School to explore the stories, photographs and different items that soldiers and nurses used during the First World War.

Longwood is the hometown of teacher Jenny Naughton, who said it was a great opportunity for students to learn about the past and the experiences of the war.
