A stained glass window commemorates Frank Tate, the first Director of Education in Victoria. 

In 1956 stained glass windows and murals were installed in the main tower stairwells on the retirement of principal, George Langley. Artist Alan Sumner designed the windows, one honouring Frank Tate and the other a World War Two memorial.

The Melbourne High School was officially opened in June 1928. Frank Tate, Director of Education from 1902 to 1928, and Alexander Peacock, Minister of Public Instruction, were both instrumental in the establishment of the school and gargoyles of these two men are placed either side of the front door.
