In addition to celebrating the life and reign of the Queen, the publication showcases a selection of organisations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain. These organisations are drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres, and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards. Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the UK’s role in the wider world.

In the area of education, Loreto Toorak has been selected to appear in the publication. ‘We were honoured when approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,’ says Dr Susan Stevens, Principal, Loreto Toorak. ‘We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it was a thrill to be regarded as one of the best schools in the Commonwealth and be part of this special historic celebration.’

Loreto Toorak is highly regarded for its academic, sporting, musical, pastoral care and cultural programs which educate young women who work towards positive social change.

More than 25,000 VVIPs, VIPs, guests and spectators attended glamorous celebrations for the Queen to help her celebrate this special occasion. The commemorative album as well as television coverage was organised to enable the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration to reach an even wider audience. The official commemorative album will also provide a lasting souvenir.
