"It is a good and noble thing for a Community to build a War Memorial.
In it we express our thanks that we live in this country as a free and independent people.
We express our realisation that we owe this freedom to those men and women who gave themselves, and all that they had, in order that the ideals of freedom, justice and truth might prevail in our country, and in the life of the whole world.
By the erection of this War Memorial Education Centre, dedicated to the memory of those brave and noble souls, we give expression in a tangible and practical fashion, to our sense of gratitude for this spirit of service and self sacrifice, and also towards Almighty God, who is the source and strength of all man’s highest thoughts and aspirations.
Finally, it is very fitting and right that these high and noble ideals should be incorporated in, and woven into the very fibre and texture of our whole educational system, and that the boys and girls of to-day, and the children of the generations yet to come, should remember those who paid in blood, and tears, and sacrifice, i n order that this heritage might be handed on to them, as a foundation, strong and sure, upon which they may build an enduring structure based upon the splendid pillars of knowledge and wisdom of strength and beauty , and of truth and justice."
An extract from the dedication of this building on 18th April 1963.
