Old Perth Boys’ 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: Looking more like a church than a school, the Old Perth Boys’ School was built in 1854 on the site of the colony’s first mill. It was Perth’s first purpose built school. Since the school relocated to James Street in 1896, the building has been occupied by the Perth Technical College and later the National Trust. It currently houses a popular cafe.
