Maffra State School Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by Chris McLaughlin

The wooden honour roll commemorates former students of the school who served in World War One.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1916. Last Empire Day the local Empire Day committee presented the local State school with an Honor Board containing the names of old scholars who had enlisted in the Empire's service. Owing to the large number of recent enlistments the Board has been found too small to contain all the names, and Mr A Beech generously donated a similar one. Now, Mr Gibson, chairman of the school committee, has undertaken to have the Board inscribed at his expense.
