Margaret Berry & Elizabeth LargePrint Page
The Brisbane Normal School has for many years been a most popular institution with all classes of parents. On Monday afternoon we paid a visit to the girls' department, which is under the charge of Miss Berry. The name of the head-mistress, Miss Berry, has become, after some thirteen years occupation of the post of teacher in Queensland, a household word in many families where young matrons have passed under her care, and hold her in affectionate remembrance.

Their contribution to the education of girls in this city was outstanding.
