Huonville School Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Arthur Garland

The wooden honour roll commemorates former students from the Huonville School who served in World War One. The roll contains photographs of those who lost their lives in the war.  

The unveiling of a school honour board by the Director of Education (Mr. Brooks) took place at the Huonville State school on the afternoon of Empire Day. There was a large attendance, representative of all parts of the district.  Pulling aside the enshrouding drapery, the Director revealed a handsome blackwood board, with the names of the 26 ex-pupils of the school who took part in the war in gold lettering, and the centre panel containing photographs of the seven of these who laid down their lives. The memorial owes its being entirely to the exertions of the children attending the Huonville State school, following the lead of the head teacher (Mr. J. E. Wright).
The Mercury (Hobart), 27th May 1920.
