505 Archives 1973 Helen Orchard College Athletics CaptainThe St Rita’s College Archivist researches and gathers material from across the decades of the College’s existence, encapsulating the history and stories of the College, its students and its education.  Our Archives is our permanent commemoration of artefacts and records that are of significance to the heritage and ongoing history of St Rita’s College.

Our Archives are our ‘memory bank’ and are an integral part of the fabric of St Rita’s.

Our professional Archivist collects material across many formats and each item, whether donated or loaned, is accessioned and catalogued.

To build a comprehensive collection, the donation or loan of items is always welcome.  We appreciate that artefacts may have personal or sentimental value and holders may not wish to part with them, and in these instances, the reproduction of the item can be explored.

Photographs, items of uniform, traditional paper records including reports, classwork, invitations, newsletters, publications, programs, calendars and posters, along with newspaper clippings, audio material, student gifts and commemorative items from throughout the generations are just some of the many forms of artefact that are pursued for the Collection.
