Maybanke launched.

Maybanke is in production. The purpose of this web-based resource is to advance the many interests championed by Maybanke Anderson around the turn of the twentieth century. Maybanke was a feminist educationist who helped establish free kindergartens, as well as study circles to support the spread of reading among adults. She was a writer, historian and publisher who advocated for educational reforms, and the training and working conditions of teachers. Maybanke's version of the 3Rs was the 3Hs: heart, hand and head. Maybanke is produced by Dr Deb Hayes, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education and Social Work at The University of Sydney.
