Newcastle Boys High School Second World War Memorial Entrance

Description

The main entrance of the school faces west towards Turton Road, Waratah. Above the main entrance are the words 'Memorial Entrance World War II 1939 -1945'. On either side of the entrance are two brass honour roll plaques with names of ex-pupils.
