Girls School

The historic 1930s Old Perth Girls School building is iconic in its ‘Egyptian Art-Deco’ grandeur. The castle-like building operated as a school for thirty years and then a Police centre for fifty years.

Some remember going to school there. Others remember going there for traffic branch business. A few remember going there to visit major crime and the dog squad. Some of them are still in prison. 

In early 2019, Girls School hosted the FRINGE WORLD Festival run-away success event A Midnight Visit. Part choose-your-own-adventure, part theatre, part film-set, part playground; A Midnight

Visit transformed 34 rooms into an unbelievable fantasy world, introducing a whole new audience to the area. 

This winter it's home to Girls School Cinema, a winter pop-up cinema experience that really is more than just the movies.

Girls School Cinema is one part of a larger plan to transform this historic building into a thriving creative precinct.

Stay tuned for more events being announced at Girls School soon!
