Epworth School – Scottsville

The Reception Art Deco Entrance


Epworth is actually two Schools, Epworth Preparatory School for Girls and Boys, and Epworth High School for Girls.

The school was opened as a private school by Emily Lowe and Emma Mason in 1898, in the City CBD, and was taken over by Wesleyan Methodist Church in 1919, and moved onto its 15 hectare campus in Scottsville in 1941.

My thanks to Renee Alcock who runs the Museum in the Mel Metcalfe Cottage, for contacting me, and then taking me around the school. This well maintained school has a good vibe with friendly staff and polite girls. I will be posting up a full gallery of the school when my images are ready for upload.

Its great to see schools taking an interest in heritage and preserving their important documentation.
