The Archives are an integral part of Toorak College

Our history dates back to 1874. The state of our Archives is a credit to the dedication shown by Elizabeth Beischer who has been with Toorak College since 1948, were she began as a boarder, became a Head Girl in 1952 and a Board member of the School from 1982 to 1993.

Whilst on the Board she was the representative of the Library and Archives sub-committee, this was a very exciting time, as the the publication of 'The Echoes Fade Not' was underway.
