East Shelbourne State School Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Tim Fitzgerald

The honour roll commemorates former students of the East Shelbourne State School who served in World War One.

The name on the roll of A. McDonald was misspelled in 1924 and should have been A. McDonnell. It was never corrected. 

The honour roll disappeared sometime after the school closed. It was located by a farmer about 25 years ago in pieces in the nearby Spring Creek, much the worse for wear.  It remained in pieces for about 15 years at a local property and went through several owners. It was given to the East Shelbourne Hall Committee and was restored by a conservator at Castlemaine, Victoria. Funding was raised by the local community and a substantial amount of money from Kangaroo Flat RSL.
