The brass honour roll commemorates former students of the school who served in World War One.

The Wilderness School was begun in 1884 by Miss Margaret Brown teaching three girls and one boy at her parents’ house which was known as Miss Brown’s School.  As student numbers grew the School became known as Medindie School and Kindergarten and in 1918 officially changed its name to Wilderness School, having been referred to informally as The Wilderness since 1893 when the School moved to its current site.  Up to the middle of the 20th Century boys were able to attend until they were aged about 8 years old.  Today the School only enrols girls.
