Days of the old school

Otago Girls’ High School’s 150th prefect, Jemma Tutty, wears an old school uniform at a talk held last night at the Dunedin Public Library by the Southern Heritage Trust.

Jemma talked about what life was like at OGHS, before the school’s 150th jubilee later in the year, while school archivist Jane Smallfield talked about the history of the school and its buildings.

The uniform, which was discontinued in 1979, was more comfortable than the current iterations, Jemma said.
