Principals

The first principal was C.B. Hughes, an American who arrived with his wife one month after the official opening of the school. He worked with the former principal of the St Kilda school, L.J. Rousseau, H.C. Lacey, A.G. Daniells, S.N. Haskell and W.C. White to direct the school through a period of rapid expansion. After an initial enrolment of just two students and five staff on the first day in 1897, by 1899 one hundred and fifty students were enrolled.
