In the Spring of 2008, the Grade 11 Modern History students at Belle Isle Regional High School completed biographies for eighteen First World War soldiers.  Their assignment was part of the ¿Lest We Forget¿ project initiated by Blake Seward, a history teacher, in Smiths Falls, Ontario.

The students researched individuals from Norton, New Brunswick who died while serving in the First World War.  There are 44 names listed on the local cenotaph, Riverbank Memorial and it is their intention to continue this project until students have completed biographies on all the individuals listed.  Their teacher, Stephen Wilson, then intends to research the soldiers from the Second World War.
