How to Reverse Image Search on Google - 2022

Important note!

When you have found the perfect image it is important that you go the website itself, rather than saving / collecting straight from Google images. Particularly if you need to reference the image for an assessment it is easier to do this when you record the website it came from.

Remember to also record the URL from the website.

Newsletter Background - The Sisterhood by Chern'ee Sutton

This painting can be found in Potter Library Level 2. Artist Chern’ee Sutton is a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people. This painting is her interpretation of All Hallows’ School and our Journey from establishment to present day. ⁠

This painting celebrates the 160th anniversary of All Hallows School and represents their journey and growth from 1861 to 2021. It showcases the sisterhood and connections made at All Hallows school, the importance of the traditional custodians and the significance of their values, goals and long history as the first secondary school for girls in Queensland to the leading educational and modern school that it is today. ⁠
