Some of the support people were invited to Cooerwull Public School to view the students’ WWI letter writing, research, and artwork.  The support people talked to the students about the Coo-ee March, Don Kenaugh told them a poem written about the Coo-ee March in 1915, then they sang songs with the students including ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and the National Anthem.
