Fern Hill Public School & Residents Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Heather Stevens

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

"How sleep the brave who sink to rest, By all their country's wishes blest." what nobler, grander, more inspiring thought could dwell in the mind of man than that expressed in the words above! On Friday afternoon, with the school room taxed to its utmost capacity, the unveiling of the Honor Roll of the Fern Hill district took place. The Mayor (Ald. G. B. Bing) occupied the chair, whilst supporting him were Mr. A. T. Hapgood and Evangelist H. G. Payne.

The meeting opened with the National Anthem, fitting, indeed, when one beheld later the names of those who had given their best for the upholding of the traditions of such a race. The chairman introduced the speakers for the occasion, Messrs. Payne and Hapgood, and afterwards asked Miss Mackie to unveil the Honor Roll.
