Edubuntu 8.04 LiveCD query

I had posted this query to the Ubuntu Users List, and was advised to 
also post it to this list.

This relates to Edubuntu 8.04, as it is the latest LTS version.

We were looking for a live Edubuntu CD iso image, to download and write,
and demonstrate to a relative who is a deputy principal (and, it would
be a good opportunity, in another state of Australia, where the state
government is reported to be going to spend 25 million AUD to supply and
install software on computers for students and teachers).

However, from what we found on the Ubuntu web site, a person has to
download a Ubuntu Live CD image and write that, and, then, download and
write a second CD image, that is Edubuntu add-ons, so that it appears
that a person cannot demonstrate Edubuntu, without installing Ubuntu on
the system on which Edubuntu is to be demonstrated.

See and

Please advise whether Edubuntu 8.04 is available as a single Live CD or
DVD image.

Thank you in anticipation.
