Visions for Dunedin: As the Swift Seasons Roll: Celebrating 150 years of Otago Girls' High School

28 July 2021 6:00pm — 7:00pm

In partnership with the Southern Heritage Trust, Dunedin Public Libraries is pleased to host a series of inspirational talks on the third Tuesday of the month throughout the year, exploring visions of Dunedin’s past, present and perhaps more importantly, its future.

PRESENTED BY: Jemma Tutty, 150th prefect, Jemma Wilson, Head Prefect, and Jane Smallfield, School Archivist

This year Otago Girls’ High School which opened in 1871 marks its 150th Jubilee. The school was the first state school for girls in the Southern Hemisphere and has always held a significant position in the education of young women.

150th Prefect Jemma Tutty and Head Prefect Jemma Wilson will talk about what life is like at Otago Girls’ High School in its 150th year.

School archivist, historian, and Convenor of our 150th Jubilee Jane Smallfield will then talk about the history of the school looking at its founding, the change in its physical environment and profile some of our prominent ex-girls.
