Photographs supplied by Arthur Garland

The marble honour roll contains the names of 248 former students and teachers of the school who served in World War One.

At the Primary School yesterday there was a large attendance of adults and children when the ceremony of unveiling the Honor Board erected at the school in memory of past pupils and teachers who had enlisted and fought in the great war was carried out. The arrangements made by the headmaster (Mr. J. Lydon), his staff, and officers of the Parents and Citizens' Association were thorough. A large amount of seating accommodation was provided outside.

A guard of honor was formed by a contingent of cadets, and the Citizens' Band was in attendance. Mr. W. J. Drew conducted the singing. After the school boys were established in positions assigned to them and the ladies provided with seating accommodation,  Mr. E. R. Hawke, President of the P and C Association, took charge. The boys saluted the flag, after which they sang "Rule Brittania."
