Description

The Port Adelaide Girls Technical School was part of the Port Adelaide Primary School. The primary school was opened in 1862 and the Girls Department was established in 1925. This was also known as the Central School. In 1940 the School was renamed Port Adelaide Girls Technical High School and operated on two sites. In 1962 the new building was opened by Lady Bastyan. This was the first time that the spouse of the Govenor opened a school. The school provided single sex schooling in a mainly working class environment.

The collection has a scrapbook with a list of teachers names and some photographs. The principals included Marg Beagley and Carolyne Ryan. There are some school magazines, education programs and history of the school.
