Opening of new Hostel for Girls at 29 Arundel St, Forest Lodge

This hostel for girls still exists at 29 Arundel St, a testament to its need and the generous support from the community in the 1920s, especially from country NSW, which helped pay for its construction.

Miss Fulton, Sydney Mail Wednesday 11 May 1921

Miss Fulton who was appointed Warden of the hostel came from England with a wide experience of similar roles in America, England and Australia. In Western Australia she was head of a girls’ camp and in Queensland she presided over a hostel.
