Шевченка, звідки з часом почали надходити молоді українські хлопці і дівчата, поповнюючи наші культ-освітні одиниці.  -   Микола Буткевич

Cultural and Educational Work

Several Saturday Schools  in Perth and suburbs commenced and after a short time it was decided to join the  "like minded schools" and they formally became the Taras Shevchenko Central School in March 8, 1950.


Initially the Taras Shevchenko Central School operated from St Patricks Church (cnr of Murray St and Havelock St) until the Church (and Church Square) were demolished to make way for the intersection of Murray & Havelock St as we know it today.  The school then moved to Railway Parade in Mt Lawley where it stayed till 1962/63; afterwards following the completion of the Ukrainian Catholic Church Hall the School moved to 20 Ferguson St, Maylands until its latest move to Mt Lawley Senior High School in 2017.
