A wooden honour roll commemorates those from the school and district who served in World War One.

The museum contains a Heritage Room, featuring individual photographs and profiles for every soldier listed the Honour Roll. 

The Alumny Creek Public School opened in 1872, a one teacher school conducting lessons from kindergarten to 6th form. The school closed in 1969 and is now a public museum depicting the typical one teacher school of the 1930’s era. The former teacher’s residence also forms part of the museum. 

Originally the school locality was officially named Alumy Creek however at the time the school opened in 1872 the spelling Alumny was in common use, even used in official road signage etc. at that time. Therefore the school was officially named Alumny Creek Public School.  While the locality has now reverted to the original spelling (Alumy Creek), the School,  because it was originally named Alumny Creek Public School, has retained its original spelling.

Arrangements are completed to celebrate Empire Day publicly at Alumny Creek. The function will take place at 2 p.m., to fit in with various speakers who will attend the functions elsewhere in the forenoon. In connection with same, the honor roll of the school and district will be unveiled by Miss Alma Eggins and Mrs. Boyd, ex-pupils, who have brothers at the front. The speakers will be Inspector Fraser, the Mayors of Grafton and South Grafton, Dr. Henry, various clergymen, and returned soldiers, who will unveil the enlarged photos of their fallen comrades. The afternoon's programme will conclude with a basket spread.
