More ANZAC Presentations

Making connections:  Sophie, Angie and Caitlin asked why I brought the taonga to school.  They reasoned that I must somehow be related to Fritz Honore.  Well done girls, you are right!

The girls found a death penny on ebay for the equivalent of NZD$356.66.  They also reported that there is a collectors' market
 for plaques that are inscribed with less common names.  Many of the death pennies were melted down (for the bronze) in the 60s and the 70s, but they are now more treasured.

Brayden, Skylar, Samuel and Travis called their presentation The Taonga.  Their presentation included a lot of interesting information, including the place of Fritz Honore's death.  He was killed in France and still lies there today.
