NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

New First World War Memorial for Clifton Terrace Model School

A new First World War memorial was unveiled at Clifton Terrace Model School in Wellington at 10.30am on Monday 19 November 2018.

Proposed design of the memorial

In 1971, during the construction of the Wellington urban motorway, Clifton Terrace Model School's First World War memorial fell down a bank into Shell Gully and was irreparably damaged.

Now, 47 years since the memorial last stood, the school is set to install a new memorial remembering the lives of the 118 students, two teachers and one former school committee member who died on active service in the First World War.

The memorial, which was unveiled at 10.30am on 19 November 2018, is to be designed in collaboration with Athfield Architects, and will feature 120 individual bronze artworks created by the pupils and teachers of Clifton Terrace Model School.

Please see the following background paper (PDF, 0.98MB) for more information about the project.
