Ormond School roll of honour

Mayor of Gisborne George Wildish unveiled the Ormond School roll of honour on 30 September 1919. It was a substantial wooden tablet which listed the names of 63 men who had served in the First World War, including 17 who had died. A further ten fallen were listed after the Second World War. The roll of honour is today displayed in the Ormond hall, which was moved to the school in 1993.
