THIS MEMORIAL IS ERECTED TO REMIND ALL WHO PASS THIS WAY OF THOSE MEMBERS OF THE SCHOOL WHO SERVED AND SUFFERED THAT OUR WAY OF LIFE MIGHT BE PRESERVED
The project to fitting war memorial was ten years in the planning, with most of the costs raised by donations from ex-students and fundraising by the Mothers' Club, the Men's Auxiliary and school groups.
The steps not only provided this memorial but also created an impressive approach from Rosalind Park which had been needed since the erection of the 1929 building.
