A monument at the entrance to the High School commemorates ten former students who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two. 

It was proposed to erect a memorial in honor of former students who lost their lives in World War II, the president of the Nuriootpa District High School Council (Mr. A. G. Kretschmer) said on Wednesday, at the annual speech day. Mr. Kretschmer said that the school council had considered various proposals, including the enlargement of the library and the provision of memorial windows, the construction of an archway be tween the main buildings, and the erection of a memorial entrance, but no finality had been reached.
