Program

12.00pm – 12.30pm

Exclusive tour of Mandeville Hall Mansion!

Those registered for this event are cordially invited, on behalf of the school’s Principal, Dr. Susan Stevens, to join the School’s Heritage Collection and Records Manager, Steve Stefanopoulos, on a tour of the Mandeville Hall Mansion. Described by Heritage Victoria as ‘one of the most lavishly decorated of Melbourne's nineteenth century mansions’, this tour will cover the mansion’s architectural significance as one of the best examples of fine town houses built during the 1870-1880s, its historical significance as a manifestation of the wealth of the affluent Clarke family, and its changing purpose as social and economic conditions in the 20th century made the maintenance of such large estates difficult for individual families.

Please arrive at 11.45am and visit the registration desk in the Mandeville Centre prior to undertaking the tour at 12.00 pm.
