A heritage to hold with care
The Perth College Heritage Centre provides both the school and wider communities with records covering all aspects of Perth College’s history since it was first founded in 1902.
The Perth College Archives, as it was originally known, was established by volunteers in the 1980s with the help of donations from Old Girls and long-serving staff. Our Heritage Officer, Jessica Marantelli, works to collect and preserve items of enduring value for student and community research.
The collection encompasses academic reports and minutes, architectural drawings, museum items, uniforms, badges, trophies, newspaper clippings, oral histories and photographs. It also includes a uniform collection that highlights the changes and advancement of our uniform over the years.
Our digital and physical photograph collection is another way of illustrating Perth College’s long and prestigious history. A selection of digitised photographs can be found on Flickr.
