Old Stirling East School Open Day

This local event is a part of South Australia’s History Festival and showcases the old Stirling East School, built in 1864 and still thriving as the “Old School Community Garden“.

Our Community Garden is on 2 ½ beautiful acres of the Adelaide Hills – the former Stirling East Primary School.

The historic school and teacher’s residence were used from the mid-1860s until 1969, when Mt Lofty CFS made it their base; it’s now an expanding community hub.

Tours or explore this wonderful space in your own time (access inside buildings has been limited due to Adelaide Hills Council preservation work).

Free workshops and activities for all ages (see facebook). Quality teas, coffee, cakes, wood oven scones, lunch options, trading table (all cash only); discover gardens/trails/art and more in this historical location.

  1. Heard about a reunion for old students for this Sunday 2nd May is this correct? If correct would like to come as I was a student there 1955-1962 haven’t been back since 1962. I do still have 7 years of school reports certificate for completing year 7, a photo of my final year and a book which was presented to all students; don’t know what to do with them

    1. Hi Thelma
      I just saw your note about the Old Stirling East School. Sorry it’s taken so long to reply but your message got lost amongst a lot of spam. If you still have items from your school days that you would like to donate then please contact the Historical Society at 08 8339 8236
