Opening of The Railene Mabin Heritage Room

On 24 November there was a lovely gathering of past Iona College Principals, Foundation, Council, IOGA and BOT guests along with patrons and supporters of our beautifully refurbished Heritage Room.

All were gathered to celebrate the official opening of The Heritage Room, formerly the old library, and there was a wonderful and special moment when it was announced the room was named in honour of Railene Mabin – our Archivist for more than 20 years. Railene has passionately assembled over 100 years of Iona’s history and has now meticulously and beautifully displayed the collection in this very special setting.

We thank Railene for her years of dedication and unwavering support of this project. We are grateful that we can now all look forward to sharing our history with Iona Old Girls and families of our girls for generations to come. The room, which will continue to be used for meetings and school functions, has always been the ‘heart’ of the school, and this refurbishment has made it even more so.

Thank you to the Iona College Foundation for promoting The Heritage Room as their 21st Anniversary project and the Patrons who have supported this project with their generosity and Spirit of Giving.
