Waranga Schools Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Tim Fitzgerald

The wooden roll of honourcommemorates those from Waranga Schools who served in World War One.

State School 3095 was Waranga Railway Station School, and 2714 was Waranga East School.  Both schools are no longer functioning.

An Honour Roll was unveiled in the Waranga school in 1916 and it is believed by Monument Australia that this is the original roll with additions being added at a later date. 

Mr Gordon, M.L.A., has forwarded us the following copy of a letter reoeived by him from the Minister of Education on the 16th inst: — " Adverting to your representations urging the erection of a State school at Waranga Railway Station, the Minister of Education has authorised the Public Works Department to remove and renovate the Waranga East State school building to the Waranga Railway Station. There must surely be some mistake in connection with the above. There has always been a school at the Waranga station, and we were not aware that representations had been made for enlargement. An effort has, however, been made to have a State school established at the Waranga Basin Camp, and the probabilities are that the communication has reference to the latter place.
Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express (Vic), 22 October 1915.
