“From its beginnings in a cramped cottage in Abel Smith Street to its present location in the historic heart of Thorndon, Wellington Girls’ College has cemented a place in the life of the capital city and in the lives of generations of Wellington women. Produced to mark the 125th jubilee of Wellington Girls’ College in 2008, this book combines historical commentary, personal memories, anecdotes and photography, both historic and contemporary. With contributions from Fleur Adcock, Ruth Pretty, Jenny Pattrick, Margaret Shields, Julia Millen, Fifi Colston, Jo Randerson and many other former pupils, this is both an ‘official’ account of the school and the world beyond its gates, and a rich record of individual experience.”
