Newcastle Boys High School Second World War Memorial Entrance


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. At the top of each plaque is the badge of Newcastle Boys High and the school motto in Latin 'remis velisque' [With oars and sails]; with all one's might'.

The school was originally know are Newcastle Boys High and has had a number of name changes. It is now known as Callaghan College, Waratah Technology Campus.

Note on veteran names: The wording on the plaques seems to indicate those named are deceased.
