Miss Adderley (Emily)

Born, Melbourne. Daughter of the late Edmund Adderley, Surrey, England, who was civil engineer for the construction of the railway line to Bendigo (then Sandhurst), but unfortunately died whilst still a young man, leaving a family of five dependent upon his young widow, whose activities in founding the Park Place Ladies’ College will be well remembered.

Being a keen enthusiast in this work, she takes an active part in the routine of the school, both in work and sport. Adwalton Preparatory School for Boys dates from 1906, and has prepared numerous successful lads for the Public Schools; among whom many have won outstanding honours at the Mel­bourne University and in England.
