A band of music under Herr Schwartz accompanied the proceedings, which included free exercises, wand exercised by the kindergarten class, dumbbell practice, Indian clubs and marching. An interesting feature was the performance of the Kindergarten class, the children ranging from 4 to 8 years of age. The pupils of the evening class presented the principals with two very handsome floral horseshoes, tied with the gymnasium colors and bearing silver badges suitably inscribed. The following is the prize list:—

  • 27 Oct 1887, (Melbourne Punch), Our party made their patronage a dual item on Saturday afternoon as we first went to the Naval and Military concerts and afterwards proceeded to the Town Hall, where the pupils of Miss Elphinstone Dick and M'Cormick held their annual exhibition. There was a very fashionable attendance at the sports, but not quite so large as last year. The events we saw contested were most interesting, while the excitement of the onlookers was fully wholesome, one gallant lieutenant, whose commercial calling necessitates his daily presence in Queen-street, nearly excelling in the matter of vociferous plaudits. The Governor, Lady Loch, the Misses Loch, Miss Heyman, Captains Traill and Keith-Falconer arrived early and remained until it was necessary for Lady Loch to proceed to the Town Hall, to distribute the prizes, to the successful gymnastic competitors of Miss Dick's class. With scarcely an exception, the ladies present wore the gowns which they had donned on the previous Saturday at the Caulfield Cup races. After partaking of the ...ality of the officers, we left for the Town Hall and arrived in time to see the pupils form into a double line, through which Lady Loch and her escorts passed. Miss ...son presented Lady Loch with a lovely basket of flowers and the programme forthwith commenced. The ensemblage was composed principally of happy school girls and their admiring maters, although a goodly number of gentlemen were present desirous of educating themselves on the abilities and development of muscle, which is to be a feature with the coming women. Miss Dick seemed on excellent terms with the pupils amongst whom are several pretty girls. I was most pleased with the club exercise for the senior girls, which was very gracefully performed. The clubs were decked with ribbons, and each movement was in harmony with a waltz tune, played by the orchestra, and I could not help thinking that in exercises of this ... the Misses Dick and M'Cormick train the ear as well as the muscle.18
  • 3 Nov 1887, (Melbourne Punch), THE annual musical gymnastic display given by the members of the gymnasium conducted by Miss Elphinstone Dick and Miss Josephine M'Cormick was held in the Town Hall on Saturday, 22nd Oct., and was honoured by a large and fashionable assemblage, including the Governor and Lady Loch, who arrived late in the afternoon from the Naval and Military. Sports. On the arrival of Lady Loch, the pupils formed themselves into a double line, through which she passed, accompanied by Mdlle. Heyman and Lieutenant Officer. One of the pupils advanced and presented Her Excellency with a beautifully-arranged basket of flowers, a presentation which Lady Loch smilingly acknowledged. The hall was filled in every -part except the centre, which was reserved for the gymnastic exhibitions. The marching and evolutions were intricate, interesting and well-arranged; the programme also included free exercises, wand exercises by Kindergarten class, dumbbell aud club exercises. An Indian club exercise for the senior pupils was remarkably pretty, tbe clubs were all gaily decked with ribbons, and the different movements were gone through in corresponding time to the music of a popular waltz, which was played by a strong orchestra. At the close of the programme Lady Loch presented the successful pupils with the prizes won, and at the conclusion the pupils once more formed into double lines, through which the Vice-regal party passed as tbey left the ball. The following is the prize list ;— Champion: Senior, Miss Dillon; junior, Miss E. Woodmason. Free exercises: Senior, Miss Robertson, Miss Taylor, Miss Tozer ; junior, Miss Marks, Miss L.

It compares favourably with kindred establishments in Europe and America, visitors from home recognising in its system and appliances the latest improvements. Children are here provided with the means of developing those physical powers which are essential to a sound education, and failing which mental progress is too often accomplished at the expense of health. Classes daily. The Saturday Class (10.30 to 12) is particularly convenient for girls attending school or residing in the suburbs, and a special feature of this lesson is the Musical Drill, which parents are invited to witness. The principals pay great attention to the cultivation of a graceful carriage and mode of walking. Circulars posted.23
  • 8 Nov 1889, (Fitzroy City Press), GYMNASTICS FOR GIRLS.
    Ow Wednesday, the 30th, a blithe company of maidens fayre met at the Ladies' Gymnasium, of which the Misses Dick and McCormack are the principals, for the purpose of receiving the prizes awarded for their gymnastic performances during the year past. The presentations were made by Lady Clarke, and the words of commendation that fell from her lips as the winners received their gifts were none too warm for the occasion. The blooming little lasses tripping up with the fairy-like grace of ideal childhood, and the graceful girls
    "Standing with unwilling feet
    Where womanhood and childhood meet."
    were an all-sufficient answer to objections that have been raised to the systematic gymnastic training of girls. Splendid specimens of budding womanhood were they, complexions clear and clearly tinted as a child's, elastic tread and graceful carriage, the voice, the eyes, and the brain strengthened, cleared and developed. And what healthy and perfect appetites their owners displayed ! There was nothing of the young-ladyism and super-gentility which not so long ago was regarded as the concomitant of womanliness, and which very frequently proved the foundation of all the ills that womankind is heir to. Nor did they realise the idea of the child, who, when asked if they had enjoyed themselves, said "Oh, yes ! we ate, and ate, and ate, and then we ate, and ate, and ate, and oh I we did enjoy ourselves." The bevy of big and little maidens who repaired to the central basement at the invitation of the lady principals ate well and naturally, but in a manner that proved their appetites were, like their muscles, well under control. A grand achievement this, to be able to move every limb and every faculty at will; to have a prospect of years of HEALTHY life, and to have developed the strength inherent in all human frames; with it all to look as fresh and stylish as heart could desire, and instead of the gasping, heavily-breathing, flushed, or unhealthily pale looking fashionable female, to be a vigorous, bright and healthy woman, with whose strength is
    developed the gentleness which makes
    The perfect woman, nobly planned,
    To warm, to comfort and command.
    Seeing the wonderful and fascinating results of ladies' gymnasium training causes more than a momentary wonder at the ladies of our suburbs not having bestirred themselves towards having some such establishment in our midst for the benefit of their youthful daughters.24
  • 6 Oct 1890, (The Argus), An exhibition ot calisthenic exercises was given on Saturday afternoon in the Town hall by the members of the ladies' gymnasium conducted by Miss H. Elphinstone Dick and Miss Josephine M'Cormick. The centre of the hall was reserved for the exercises by the pupils, and the stage and galleries, as well as all the seats round the hall, were filled with the friends and guests of those who took part in the exhibition The young ladies, who were dressed in a neat uniform costume of blue and white, admirably couducive to freedom of movement, went through a number of evolutions to a musical accompaniment with great precision. The programme, in which 68 young ladies took part, comprised exhibitions of free exercises, dumb bells, wand exercises, ring exercises, Indian clubs, and marching. The last-named item included a variety of complicated figures, which were gone through with wonderful smoothness and accuracy, and the graceful carriage of all who took part in the display testified to the value of the physical education which they had received.25

Amongst those present were Lady Baldwin Spencer, Dr. and Mrs. Morrison, Mrs. and Miss Sykes, Captain and Mrs. Serle, Mr. and Mrs. John West, senr., Captain Stanley Shields, Mrs. Nott, Miss Boehme and Miss Marks.58
  • 16 Oct 1924, The Late Miss Josephine McCormick. Greatly gifted and deeply mourned at her decease (on the 1st inst.), Miss Josephine McCormick, of "The Steyne," St. Heliers-street, Abbotsford, had, throughout a constantly busy life, made a greater number of devoted friends of all ages than can be numbered by most women who have no time to spare for keeping up acquaintanceship by visiting and attending social functions. The whole of Miss McCormick's career was taken up in alleviating the bodily suffering of other people, and these included a great number of children whose spinal and similar complaints necessitated special treatment scientifically administered.
    When the Melbourne Ladies' Medical Gymnasium was first established in Australia, Miss Josephine McCormick. whose exceptional gifts had brought her into well-deserved prominence, was selected as principal of it, and held that responsible position for several years.
    Her mental activity was not confined to one pursuit only; she took, to the last, a deep interest in literature and the arts. When the Lyceum Club was founded, she was one of its first members, and was the means of increasing its early membership. A woman of broad sympathies and winning personality, the late Miss McCormick kept a wonderful hold on the esteem and affection of the people of diverse occupations, creed, and country, that her life-work brought her into contact with; and her correspondence with former pupils and patients travelling abroad was voluminous, varied and deeply interesting.
    In all charitable works in connection with the Faith, Miss Josephine McCormick, ever a devout adherent of the Church, took an active part, and used her influence in the promoting of all advance movements in its interests.

It was a happy thought of Miss Ada Freeman and Miss Winifred Lloyd to give a party at the Lyceum Club on Wednesday afternoon, December 22, for Miss Rieke Parker, who is leaving for Europe on January 18, and many of whoso friends will be out of town on that date. The guests were received in the committee-room, which was decorated with great bowls of gladioli and pink snapdragons, and afterwards tea was served in the dining-room. Miss Freeman wore a shady navy blue crinoliue hat, bound with ribbon, with her navy blue georgette frock, which was patterned in a floral design in soft primrose colourings. A corbeau blue marocain frock, which opened in front to chow a panel patterned in rose and almond green tunings, was worn by Miss Lloyd, with her small blue crinoline hat, which was relieved with the same shades. Miss Parker was presented with a posy of pale pink carnations and delphiniums, which harmonised with her charming frock of soft wedgwood blue georgette, which was embroidered in blue and honey colour; her hat was of blue pandau straw, swathed with velvet ribbon in a deeper tone. Mrs. A. Freeman was in navy blue georgette, embroidered in a broderie Anglaise design, and showing touches of fuchsia colour, which also finished her small navy blue hat. The guests included:—
