St George's Orphanage was licensed under the State Children Act 1911 on 26 October 1917.
Mary Brookes-Ball was appointed Superintendent of St Georges Orphanage, Rockhampton, in October 1917.
The Homes (including the Group Homes) were governed by a Management Committee from 1917 until 1982 - most of the minutes of this committee still exist, as well as Synod Reports and Church Gazette articles. These are all kept in the Diocesan Registry.
