Miss Dudley arrived from India in 1897 to do missionary work amongst the indentured Indian labourers. She immediately started a school for mixed adult labourers. Six weeks after her arrival her students grew from 6 to 40.
She taught Indian boys and girls and was assisted by two missionaries from India.
In 1905 Miss Dudley resigned as she didn’t like the idea of going to Nausori to run the orphanage and left for India. The house on the hill where she stayed was known as the “The Dudley House”. The school was later called Dudley House School.
In 1927 Miss A.M Griffin had the school moved back to the present site, 16 Eden Street.
The first Form 3 was established in 1945 and the school is now a high school – Dudley High School.
In 1964 the four Methodist Schools in Toorak were amalgated and became a multi-racial and mixed schools under one Toorak School board of Govenors
Which are: Annesly Infant School -classes 1&2
Suva Methodist Primary School- classes 3-6
