Terrace School war memorial

Unveiling of the Terrace School memorial by the Governor General in November 1924. See related report in the Evening Post (PapersPast) and image from 1924 (National Library). This page from 1936 shows the memorial in the background when the new Clifton Terrace School was being built. This memorial was 'accidently' demolished during the building of the Wellington motorway in November 1971.

Although no names were listed on the memorial, Brett McKay with assistance from Colonel (ret) Raymond Seymour, has researched a roll of honour of old boys and teachers from the Terrace School who were killed in the First and Second World Wars. Brett has also organised a replacement memorial which will be unveiled at Clifton Terrace Model School in November 2018.

Notice to descendants of old boys from the former Terrace School, Wellington who died on active service in WW1 and WW2

Clifton Terrace Model School, successor to the Terrace School, is erecting a new war memorial to replace the memorial which was lost in 1971-2. The new memorial will be unveiled by the Governor-General at a ceremony to be held on Monday 19 November 2018.

Any descendants wishing to attend the unveiling ceremony can register their interest by contacting Claire Bruin, Office Manager, Clifton Terrace Model School, Ph 04 4727519 or Email  staff@ctms.school.nz

Second World War Roll of Honour

There is no known roll of pupils from the Terrace School who served in the Second World War or any record of those who died on active service. However, the numbers would have been far less than those who participated in the Great War.

For Terrace School pupils to have been eligible to serve at some stage in the Second World War they would have to have been at the school no later than say 1927. Given the losses in the Great War and the progressively declining rolls after 1918 the pool of eligible servicemen would therefore have reduced. The school eventually closed in 1934 and reopened as a side-school to the Kelburn School catering for younger pupils.

The following names of old boys have been located by searching newspaper reports on Papers Past between 1939-45 under the key words ‘Terrace School’. The names were subsequently checked on the Auckland War Memorial Museum Online Cenotaph to verify the newspaper reports and to identify service numbers.

CALSON, JOHN HENRY POWELL: 31507 ARMY - 22nd INFANTRY BATTALION
