A wooden honour roll commemorates former pupils of the school who served in World War One and World War Two. The roll was originally unveiled in 1918 with the names of those who served in World War Two added at a later date.

There was a large gathering of parents and children, when the following musical program was gone through. — Song, Intercession, scholars; song, Coming Home, Miss Belcher ; recitation, Our Australian soldiers, Little ones; song, Marsellaise, scholars: song, God send you back to me, Miss McDermott ; recitation, For the Fallen, scholars ; song, Heroes of the Dardanelles, Mr Bob Walker ; recitation, Shrapnel, Mr Jack Belcher.

There are 24 names on the Roll, which speaks well for the courage and loyalty of the Moglonemby manhood. Afternoon tea was provided by the ladies.
