Plaque at Waitaki boys High School Hall of Memories Plaque at Waitaki boys High School Hall of Memories
1920
Photo of Speech of H. R. H. The Duke of York. The speech is engraved on a brass plaque which is mounted on wood. It states" Mr Chairman and boys of the Waitaki High School. I want to thank you very much for the welcome you have given me here to day. I am very glad to have this opportunity of visiting this school for I have heard a lot about it from my brother who, as you know, visited here in 1920. I propose to say very little to day because a hall of memories requires very few words. Its associations and all that it stands for call for silence rather than speech. But I do ask you not to let those words, Hall of Memories, become merely an empty name to you. Remember that this room stands for all that was best and noblest in those who gave their lives for the empire to which you and I belong. Remember the loyalty and self-sacrifice of those old boys, and see to it that the generations which come after you shall also learn the lessons which they taught, for as they served their country in war, so must you serve her in peace and if you cherish those ideals of truth and right for which they fought, you will be completing the task they began and their lives will not have been given in vain. I have now much pleasure in declaring the hall open.
