St Margaret's College
St Margaret's College is a school community that is founded on Anglican Christian values. They are dedicated to excellence in all that they do. They believe that education must be holistic; that it embraces the spiritual and emotional wellbeing of their girls, as well as their academic growth and their development in sport and in the arts.
Archibalds saw considerable alignment between the school's vision for learning and our own vision for commerce. After meeting late in 2014, Archibalds agreed to support the development of the school's arts program by coming on board as the lead sponsor for the senior production.
