Opuatia roll of honour

Opuatia School was opened in 1917 and closed in 1973. The building is now used as a community centre. The Opuatia roll of honour, which hangs in the community centre was originally unveiled in the old Opuatia hall. It went into storage for some years after the hall was closed, but was placed in the community hall about ten years ago.

The roll of honour lists the names of three local men who served in the First World War, one of whom, A.H. Ramsey, was killed in action, and of nine local men who served in the Second World War.

See: Opuatia 50th School Jubilee, 1917 – 1967, Opuatia, 1967; Pukekawa School Centenary, 1895-1995, Pukekawa, 1995, pp. 79-81.
