         The Governor’s Address

                                                                                    Blending architecture with nature
                                              in ‘her House’ with an international gathering of family and friends, including
                                              University Chancellor Ms Elizabeth Alexander.  Henderson House showed its
                                              versatility in ready conversion to a social space.

                                              As the newest of seven ‘wings’ to build upon the original Janet Lady Clarke Building
                                              (1890), following Manifold (1927), Traill (1930), Joske (1956), Scantlebury (1962),

                                              (1996), Margaret Henderson House has taken its place in the ‘back corner pocket’ of
                                              the College. Nestled between our heritage-listed buildings and heritage-listed tennis
                                              court, Margaret Henderson House offers something significant from land which
                                              previously housed an ageing bike and maintenance shed, now relocated to the north
                                              east boundary, and much improved.

                                              Designed by College Architect Mr Barry O’Connor and built entirely offsite by
                                              Modscape Constructions, the building incorporates high environmental design
                                              standards with extensive use of large glass windows to open up the vistas to the
                                              courtyard as well as to Ormond and Trinity.  Designed with an eye to maximum
                                              flexibility, it offers study and music practice spaces, a ‘board room’ for students and
