Last month was the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII.
That got year 11 Trinity Catholic College student Gemma Seymour thinking about the lives of the service women who attended local catholic schools.
"My home is in the Southern Tablelands thus, Trinity, Marian, St Joseph's and OLMC Colleges are part of my history as a student," Gemma said.
"I feel like much of military history concentrates on men's and boys' experiences.
"I want to recognise the women and their sacrifices during Australia's wartime commitments.
"I believe females who were involved in conflicts go unnoticed.
"We commemorate the males and all they have done but most people think that war was a male thing.
"I want to make more obvious the female involvement."
So far, Gemma has been able to find several Goulburn women who were involved in war, but is yet to find any who were from any of the female catholic colleges in Goulburn.
"I have asked a few people if they know any females who had involvement in war that were from Goulburn catholic colleges," she said.
"I am hoping to find one woman before the school holidays."
Gemma is a part of the school's Battlefield Club which plays war games, creating models, and researching military history.

"We each have different interests in military history," Gemma said.
"For example, one member lectured on Russian World War II tanks.
"It's great to listen to what someone is saying when creating or painting models or organising things such as excursions."
To aid Gemma in her research, contact Trinity Catholic College's wellbeing and diversity teacher Bev McGreevy if you have any knowledge of women who attended local catholic schools and went on to serve in our defence forces.
