The Memorial School of Arts Supper Room was built to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two. 

On 25/4/1946, a Public Meeting was called to form a Committee to build a Memorial to the Returned Men and Women of the 1939/45 War. From this meeting a new project was launched to be known as the 1939/45 War Memorial Fund.

After many meetings and much discussion, as well as a Plebiscite put to the citizens, it was decided to build as the 1939/45 Memorial, a new Supper Room behind the original buildings, also new toilets. The building being completed and opened by Mr. W. Yeo, State President R.S.S.A.I.L.A., after a banquet attended by many leading citizens on the 2nd March 1956.
