Narioka State School Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

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

Empire Day was celebrated at the Narioka State school by a combined schools picnic, and advantage was taken of the day to unveil a school honor roll bearing the names of 21 members of the A.I.F. who had been scholars of the school. The unveiling ceremony was performed by Mr J. L. Harding, who also had been a scholar of the school. The day was comprehensively dealt with by Mr Harding, who gave a short description of the rise of the Empire. Mr G. Stickels also addressed the gathering. The chair was occupied by Mr C. Warren, member of the school committee.

A programme of songs and recitations was given by the children. The flag was saluted in true soldierly fashion, races and games were indulged in, and a fine luncheon was provided by the ladies. A gift much appreciated was a case of oranges by Mr Smith of Yambuna. The picnic was organised by Miss Bowman, of Narioka State-school.
