Museum Hall

"We called this room the Museum Hall.  The Large Picture is of Archbishop Gillis, one of the Founding Fathers of the Convent

One House Name was Gillis.  The other houses were named Menzies, Clapperton and Trail.  All were involved in the School’s foundation, when all around was farmland!"
