The Girls' High School was founded by Sarah Thompson Walker (second daughter of George Washington and Sarah Benson Walker) and Poppy Clarke, in 1892 at Stephenville now the sight of St Michaels Collegiate. The Girl's High School was renamed the Hobart Ladies College in 1917 when Miss Rea became headmistress to save confusion with many state high schools that were being established at the time.
