Thanks Craig
I can see some real potential here as a 'bridge' for schools coming to terms
with concepts such as Wikipedia, and also for those with access issues
(filters, bandwidth and costs). 
How long do you envisage such a project would take? How much work do you
think is involved?
It may be possible to organise some assistance with this, but I don't have
any concept of what process would be followed to develop this project.
Could you give some 'how to' information as background?
Many thanks, Pru

Okay, there seems to be a bit of interest here, so I've boldly created a
subpage for planning:
At the moment it's really just my thoughts on the subject, but as the advice
on the edit page says; feel free to edit it mercilessly.

I would be! maybe a task-force for WikiProject Australia?
And we would have to decide what "Australian" contents gets in, eg:
iconic/well known tv shows/what history content gets in.
