Comments: Aside from the boards with names, which were created post-WWII, there is also a statue and a stained glass window and these date from 1931 when the building was built and were planned from as early as 1919. The school had plans to move sites from before the war, but it took until 1929 to get the money to buy the land. But a memorial to the great war fallen was always central to plans for a new building and there was separate fund for it.
