Korowa’s rich history continues to be preserved for future generations through our Archives department.

Home to Korowa memorabilia, including photographs dating as far back as 1900 and school uniforms, to the very first edition of the school’s magazine ‘Korowa’ (now Palm Leaf) in 1912, the Archives Office is managed by our dedicated Archivist and is situated in The Betty Johnson Room.

Donations of memorabilia from Korovians and their families are warmly welcomed and will be used to continue to document the School’s history in the future. If you are interested in donating an item to our archival collection, please contact Archives Office on 03 8808 8852 or archives@korowa.vic.edu.au

The Archives Office is open by appointment during School Terms.

About Korowa’s Archival Collection

During the research and writing of Korowa’s history And As We Journey by Korovian Pam Chessell (Pilgrim ’62) published in our Centenary year of 1990, photographs, administrative records, uniform items and memorabilia from past students and their families were collected together.

The area is named in honour of Miss Betty Johnson, a meticulous record-keeper who made an outstanding contribution to Korowa from 1935 as a teacher, School Registrar and volunteer covering a period of more than 60 years.

Students are able to visit the Archives in conjunction with their studies and carry out research. The collection include paper records, photographs, uniforms, badges, prizes, building plans, artworks, all copies of the School Magazine since 1912, as well as multi media materials.
