About the organisation

Loreto Mandeville Hall is a Catholic Girls' School with over 900 girls from ELC to VCE located in the inner eastern Melbourne suburb of Toorak. The Loreto Mandeville Hall Heritage Collection began in September 1924 when the school first opened in the historic mansion Mandeville Hall. Since 1924, the collection has grown immensely and was initially sorted and collated by Sister Josephine Jeffery ibvm. She saw the need to gather material from all over the school into one location and preserve it for future generations. Her enthusiasm is perpetuated today with our collection now providing a valuable snapshot of the life of the School. The Heritage Collection documents the tradition and history of the School and also serves as its long-term memory, enabling better quality planning, decision-making and action by providing continuity, access to past experience, expertise and knowledge, and a historical perspective.
