The wooden roll of honour commemorates those from the district who served in World War One.

The roll containing 25 names was originally unveiled on 25th April, 1917. Additional names were added at a later date. 

There was a large gathering at the local State school on Arbour Day. Addresses were given by the head teacher, Mr.J. R. Hawse, in his usual capable style, and Cr. W. F. Mclntyre gave a stirring speech, and also unveiled the honor roll, containing 25 names. Special hymns, songs and recitations were given by the children. The ladies ot the district and the school committee provided afternoon tea. It was a representative gathering, and was a great success.
