MLC School, Burwood, NSW
MLC School, formerly known as the Methodist Ladies College is located in the inner western Sydney suburb of Burwood. It was founded in 1886 as a school to prepare students for admittance to the University of Sydney. It was also one of the first schools in Australia to offer girls the same level of education as boys. Today the independent Uniting Church School is exclusively for girls for all age groups.
