Kadina Memorial High School 1924 – 2012
Thousands of students and staff from all walks of life have entered the school gates to attend Kadina Memorial High School (KMHS) since its inception in 1924. The School’s motto was ‘Opportunitas Semel – Dawn of Opportunity’ honouring the district’s servicemen and women from World War One. It was a symbolic phrase to encourage students to seek a fulfilling life.
Many scholars have gone on to further their studies and careers in the sciences, arts, sports and most importantly have become valuable members of the community.
As the district’s only high school it had a significant influence on the lives of many young people who travelled vast distances on school buses from outlying townships and farms to complete their secondary schooling.
A history book ‘Kadina Memorial High School 1924 -2012’ was officially launched in May 2014, with detailed references to the decades since it first began operating. Copies of the history book may still be available for purchase by contacting the Front Office on 8821 0100.
