The original Methodist Ladies College/Annesley College Old Scholars’ Association began in 1905 as the MLC Guild. It was a way for former pupils of the school to meet regularly and keep friendships alive. The early meeting consisted of music and literary evenings which included essay-writing for discussion and an occasional reading of Shakespeare and other distinguished writers. A notable history of the Association has been detailed by historian Daphne Gum. Entitled ‘A Rich Tapestry of Lives’ it celebrates our Old Scholars’ Association at it’s 90th birthday and available through the school.
The on-site Patchell Historical Centre, located in the Patchell Library, provides a wealth of information about the College and its heritage.
