Sarah Agnes Angus Brewster Print Page Print this page

The Library at the Hornsby Girls High School commemorates Sarah Agnes Angus Brewster (1874-1957), headmistress and naturalist.

In January 1931 Sarah Brewster became founding principal of Hornsby Girls' High School. She stocked the library, filled bare corridors with pictures and had avenues planted with shrubs. Under her guidance the barren grounds were turned into an oval,  tennis and basketball courts. She also imparted her love of nature to many of her students before she retired from teaching on 31 January 1938.
