Methodist Ladies’ College in Kew celebrated its 135th birthday in 2017 with student ambassadors wearing various MLC uniforms from years gone by, including one from 1912.
This provided an interesting insight into the uniform changes from its turn-of-the-century dress code to its current, modern uniform.
In this day and age wearing a tunic to school is considered old fashioned. Most Australian schools have opted for a more modern look by including a kilt or skirt as part of their girls uniform. Mercy College Coburg is one of the last schools in Melbourne where girls still wear a tunic as part of their winter uniform.
