The marble honour roll commemorates former teachers and students from the school who served in World War One.

A gable-shaped honor roll in white marble has been competed by Mr A. E. Innell, stonemason, Shepparton, and erected in the Congupna State school. It is a handsome piece of workmanship. The lettering, which is in black, with gold embellishments, is as follows: "Pro patria. In honor of the teachers and pupils of this school, who served the Empire in the Great War." The names indelibly engraved thereon are as follow:—Teachers: ; H. R. Wright;. A.M Blore, G.B.Osborne. Pupils: J. Anstis, J. Boyd, W. L. Coldwell, R. P. Crozier, W. Crozier, R. J. Evans, H.
