Independent Minds

A History of St George Girls High School

Celebrating 100 years of academic excellence and social leadership

Drawing on the recollections of past and present students, teachers and parents, Independent Minds brings to life the impressive history of Sydney's St George Girls High School. In the school's early years, students wore white hats and gloves, and botany was the only science subject taught. Today its students succeed across all areas and St George Girls High School enjoys a long standing reputation as one of the best schools in the state. Throughout the massive upheavals of the past century one constant has remained: the school's commitment to nurturing intelligent and engaged young women.
