Lilian Bayly

Lilian Bayly’s significant bequest provided key funding for the Lilian Bayly Centre, opened in 2007. Located adjacent to Montrose on the Armadale campus, the Centre is a dedicated learning space for students in Years 7 and 8, designed to encourage linked learning across the two years thus making the transition to the senior years so much easier. 
Born Lilian Linton Cruthers, Lilian started at Lauriston in third term 1929 and left in December 1931. She was a member of the Running Team in 1930 and 1931. She married Stanislaus Bayly in 1941. The couple lived in Turramurra in Sydney. Lilian was a founding member of the New South Wales branch of the Old Lauristonians’ Association, a group established in 1961 to provide Old Lauristonians with opportunities to develop friendships and networks in Sydney. 
Stanislaus, who died in 2000, also left a bequest to Lauriston to help further girls’ education.
