Tomki Public School First World War Honor Roll

Tomki Public School WW1 Honor Roll
Description

Tomki Public School opened in 1887 and closed in March 1976. It was named the Tomki School until June 1923, then became McKees Hill School. The timber Tomki Public School Honor Roll is now housed in the foyer of the Clovass-McKees Hill Soldiers Memorial Hall, which was opened in 1950. The Soldiers Memorial and Community Hall Committee was awarded an Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program on 21 March 2015 to construct a memorial garden at the hall and to refurbish the roll. Both were unveiled at an Anzac Day community event held on Saturday 25 April 2015.
