Elizabeth Kuiper’s (2013) ‘Little Stones’ book launch On 15 October, Ormond alumna, Elizabeth Kuiper joined current students at Formal Hall, to talk about her debut novel being released. Elizabeth describes the book as a ‘semi-autobiographical political book placed in a coming of age story’. In it, we meet Hannah, an 11-year old girl living in Zimbabwe during Mugabe’s time in power and then fleeing to Perth. It is a deeply personal story, that seamlessly blends facts and fiction. Coming back to Ormond College, Elizabeth is reminded of the wonderful time she had here and the courage this community gave her to do what she dreamt of and not just what was expected. The Ormond community is a complete micro-ecosystem that fosters and nurtures its students: “Ormond College is a unique experience that everyone should get a chance to have. It’s a collective of young people who are all exceptional in their own right, and are always helping each other grow and be challenged.”

My Life is Murder Ormond’s iconic campus was the setting for intrigue and murder in episode seven of Ten’s latest whodunnit series, ‘My Life is Murder’. The College was transformed into a private girls school for the episode; it was great fun watching Magda Szubanski and Lucy Lawless take over the Master’s office for the day! Students had the opportunity to be extras in the show, help out on set and meet the Director and production crew for a Q&A panel discussion. You can can catch the program via the Ten Play app.

Recently the Student’s Club unveiled the two paintings purchased this year by the Brack Fund. The fund is used to contribute to contemporary art purchases for the benefit of Ormond students.

he Ormond College Student’s Club has purchased art since the 1950s, when it collected a small sum from each student for the purpose. During this period the Club bought a series of modest

works on paper and a painting called Study for the Bar (1954) by John Brack, which cost $600. The painting is a study – meaning a practice run – for one of Brack’s most famous paintings, The Bar. By the late 1980s, Study for the Bar was worth at least $100,000 and the College and Club were concerned about keeping it safe. In 1988 the work was sent to the National Gallery of Victoria for safekeeping and for display in an exhibition. The painting then went to an art dealer to be valued so that its future could be determined. After an unfortunate misunderstanding, the painting was then sold, and after a protracted debate and legal advice, the Student’s Club accepted the sale.

Ormond’s gardens Ormond’s picturesque gardens and landscaped grounds hold a special place in the heart of our community. A place of sanctuary and renewal, host to thoughtful reflection, recreation and celebrations, and home to birds, bees and other wildlife.

The College grounds have evolved from open pastures with evergreen windbreaks dotted with grazing cattle and sheep, to a more complex landscape of broad open lawns and intimate gardens with flowering borders, shrub beds, forest edges and grand tree plantations, figured around an ensemble of buildings, serpentine drives and pathways. The landscaped grounds were laid out early in the history of the College, with much existing planting dating from the 1930’s, the work of gardener Arthur Smith (known as ‘The Genius’). Today Ormond’s gardeners, Colin Barnes and Michael Neugebauer, with the help of students continue this legacy and the evolution of Ormond’s gardens. With the support of donors, improvements such as the addition of the Australian native garden and restoration of Picken Lawn ensure they remain a place of tranquillity and inspiration for generations to come.
