A unique relic of Newcastle’s local history has taken pride of place at the Newcastle Interchange.

The Wickham World War I honour roll, originally installed at Wickham Superior Public School in 1918, is a memorial to the school’s 326 staff and students who served in the war.

The 3.5 by 2.5 metre, 1.2 tonne, ornate marble and granite memorial was delivered to site in 48 pieces and installed by a specialist team of stonemasons on the main concourse at a cost of $110,000.
