    Default Board of Honour!

    I wonder if there have been a board of honour in England or some other country except Russia. In the Soviet Union there was a board with the photos of the best workers of the company... How would you call it? Is " board of honour" ok?

    Roll of honour is common in the UK.

    Is it the same as Board of honour? I mean, can we see the photos of the best staff?

    It could be, but it could also be a printed list or spoken, for example, so it's not as formalised.

    Is there anything like that( I mean board of honour) in English schools for the best students? A friend of mine said that it's called "Wall of Fame" Is it true?

    Not in the UK, I think, perhaps in the USA.

    At my secondary school, there was a small noticeboard outside the headmistress' office with a sign above it saying "Last Year's Highest Achievers" and a photo of the 5 students who got the best marks in their final exams at the end of their last academic year at the school.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    At my high school in the US it was called the Honor Roll; it was just a list of students without photos.
