St Ignatius Convent 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: This simple timber school was built in 1911 by the Sisters of Mercy to educate girls from Wentworth and remote sheep stations along the Murray and Darling Rovers. Restored by the National Trust in 1988 it is the only school of its kind surviving in NSW.
