Emu Plains Public School Honor Roll

In March 1916, the Parents and Citizens Association at Emu Plains Public School met to discuss the erection of an honor roll for their past students. The Empire Day celebrations in June 1917 saw the unveiling of a Roll of Honor, ‘upon which 30 names figured’. The ceremony was performed by Henry Btiddon, War Chest Commissioner. Local dignitaries attended including  Cr S H Walker from Blue Mountains Shire and Ald.David Fitch (Mayor of Penrith).

This Honor Roll was housed in the old Emu Plains primary school and was relocated to the new primary school site in 1977. In 2016, the school and Penrith RSL received Federal Government funding to restore the honor roll.

The World War 1 roll is inscribed with the following:
