Tarilta State School Honour RollPrint Page
The honour roll of the now non-existent Tarilta State School commemorates scholars who served in World War One.
All of the men on the honour roll were wards of the state as children and lived in orphanages in Melbourne. They were adopted out to farmers in the Tarilta area and then "employed" as indentured farm workers, which basically was child slave labour. The only escape from their servitude after they turned 18 was to enlist for service in World War One.
An unusual aspect of this honour roll is that all those lsited on the roll, are listed by firstname and surname.
The Honour Roll was unvieled by the Premier of Victoria, Mr. H. Lawson, on Saturday 9th November 1918.
