James Bassett School – National Trust Property

Help the National Trust protect our heritage by undertaking a regular volunteer commitment!

The National Trust works to preserve and promote Australia’s indigenous, environmental, and built heritage and culture.

A huge number of positions are available across the state varying from front of house, food service and clerical roles to guiding, research, promotions and fundraising.

Volunteering at the National Trust is a fantastic way to meet new people, develop new skills and contribute to the history of your local community.

About this site: Built in 1854 as a boys school by James Bassett, it continued until 1874. From 1895-1900 the building was used by the Church of England as a school. In the 1950s and 60s it was used as the Willunga District Council Chambers. The structure was built from local limestone, and roofed and floored with local slate.
