In A Broad Path – Melbourne High School and the beginning of state secondary education, Luke will talk about the origin of the school and state secondary education which both began in 1905 with the opening of the Melbourne Continuation School (renamed Melbourne High School (MHS) in 1912) it was the first of a number of High Schools across Victoria that opened academic secondary education to many Victorians for the first time.  Located in the city and co-educational, the school split, with the boys moving to South Yarra and the girls after a peregrination to Albert Park as Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School.  Luke will also look at connections between the school and Port Melbourne.
