Topping off a good education: All Hallows' School
The Sisters of Mercy founded a school in Brisbane in 1861 on the site of St Stephens Cathedral in Elizabeth Street. In 1863, the school was relocated to Duncan’s Hill, Ann Street, a magnificent location perched high above the Town Reach of the Brisbane River, and the school was named All Hallows’.
The Principal, Sr Anne O’Farrell R.S.M., realised that its vision for educational and cultural outcomes would be compromised by inadequacies in its building infrastructure. The challenge, taken up by architects and planners Daryl Jackson Pty Ltd in their Master Plan, was to enhance the built environment of All Hallows’ School while recognising and integrating the unique and historical features of the site.
