Identification includes a reference to the page on which the specific photograph occurs in the Stythian magazine where relevant (e.g. ST p123); NIS for a formal photograph that does not appear in the Stythian magazine; and TBI for a photograph which has either been identified in part (by year at least), but for which some aspect requires further identification or requires complete identification. As at November 2020, digital images from 1953 to 1991 have been loaded.
The albums contain assorted photographs, newspaper cuttings, invitations to formal events and programmes of school productions as well as occasional photographs of sports teams and dramatic productions. For detailed contents see individual albums. Some albums also contain newspaper articles (NCs) pertaining to the Boys' College as well as the Boys' Prep. However, as the majority of the album contents pertain to the BP, all items are included in this BP collection, with reference made to BC items where relevant.
The content of each issue varies and includes articles of interest to boys at the time, photographs and original drawings, as well as essays, obituaries and tributes and reports on some school events. The Chronicles provide insight into the thinking and interests of schoolboys in the earlier 1960s as well as a record of the life of the school from a boy's perspective.

This collection includes a selection of photographs taken of the Girls' College and the Girls' Prep. The girls' schools were known collectively as the Collegiate from the time of the appointment of the first staff in 1994, up until the renaming of the campus schools into the current divisions in 2000. The earlier images included in this Collection were digitised from albums compiled by the staff between 1994 and the emergence of born digital photographs in the early 2000s. With the proliferation of digital images, the selection of images will reflect the activities of the GC and the GP in any particular year.
