Beyond the classroom
Being a school in the heart of the CBD means we make full use of the capital's business district, landmark venues and cultural nooks.
Our students learn as much beyond the classroom, as they do within it, at venues such as:
- St George’s Cathedral for weekly chapel services, assemblies and presentation nights
- State Theatre Centre of WA for productions
- Perth City State Library for study and tutorials
- Art Gallery of WA for Visual Arts excursions
- WA Museum Boola Bardip for Science excursions
- Sporting venues and open spaces including Wellington Square, Supreme Court Gardens, Kings Park, Lords, Loftus Recreation Centre, Beatty Park Aquatic Centre, UWA Sportspark and Bold Park.
- King Street Arts Centre for extra Dance space
- Perth Concert Hall for performances
- Francis Burt Law Education Centre and the Malcolm McCusker Justice Centre for HASS excursions
- South32, Perth's tallest building, next door to the school, hosts our annual art exhibition.
- Elizabeth Quay and Central Park for Park Play
Smaller venues include Perth City Farm for Sustainability Studies, local bookstores Boffins and Planet Books for English class visits or Chinatown for Languages excursions. An ATAR Literature class might take place at a cafe - Wolf Lane, Madlily’s Espresso, Howard’s Groove Coffee, Hemingway Café or Brookfield Place Café Court all enjoy hosting our students. Our Year 10 students are encouraged to approach local businesses for Work Experience.
During Extended PCG, teachers take advantage of the eateries around us. Students look forward to visiting favourites like Presotea, Gusto Gelato, Baskin-Robbins, Milky Lane, Honey Crème, Kuld Creamery, Mary Street Bakery, Toastface Grillah, Little China Girl, Ribs N Burgers, Betty’s Burgers, Grill’d, Sushi Hub, Le Vietnam, Time Zone, B. Lucky & Sons, Strike Bowling, Krispy Kreme, Raine Square food court, Dome and more.
