Anglican Identity

Members of the School community are encouraged to explore Christian beliefs, to think, to feel, and to respect differences, without denigration of other identifiable value systems. We aim to develop each person’s faith within a community framework, to assist each in their own spiritual and social development.

The School aims to focus on the needs of the whole person – intellectual, aesthetic, moral, spiritual, emotional, physical and social. These are incorporated in the total range of activities experienced at the School, commonly known as curriculum. Curriculum includes the formal academic component of school education, developing knowledge and insight into the world of learning and the integration of experiences from a range of sources such as the Co-Curricular program.

  • All students are able to learn.
  • Learning is best conducted in a safe environment, where mistakes can be made without ridicule.
  • The focus of School life must be a holistic one that includes the full and balanced development of each member of the School community.
  • A healthy balance must exist between the demands of School and home life for all students, staff and parents.
  • Learning is best when the learner integrates experience, imagination, information and application.
  • Regular feedback is vital for teachers, students and parents.
  • Students are recognised for their uniqueness.

Our sense of community is built around the quality of relationships between staff, students and parents and therefore is partially dependent upon staff welcoming parents into the School as much as possible, and associating with them on other occasions. Students need to communicate clearly and work with other students, staff and parents. Parents need to be involved with the School as much as possible, taking an active interest in the development of their own and others’ children.

Our School is committed to demonstrating an open and inclusive approach to all aspects of School life. Entry to the School is non-selective and the School seeks to demonstrate a democratic approach to the education and participation of its students in all School activities. The Anglican tradition and the School’s own Vision and Values for its students reinforce this commitment to an inclusive School environment.


Our School is a Christian School in the Anglican tradition. As such, worship is an essential and integral part of the weekly rhythm within the School.

By way of our weekly Chapel services and Christianity, Religion and Life lessons, we seek to encourage and nurture the spiritual life of our students and to support them as they explore the big questions of life and its meaning in the context of God. Our hope is that our students will be prepared for life in such a way that strong and healthy relationships are fostered, their God given gifts and abilities are valued and developed, and that every student will have a clear understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him.

Our Chaplain is an integral part of the pastoral care system of our School. He offers pastoral care and social and emotional support and spiritual guidance to all members of the community, irrespective of their faith or beliefs. This care and support is offered in the everyday situations that we face as well as in times of crises.  The door is always open to those who may be finding life difficult, or who may need a helping hand in times of distress. The Chaplain is based in St Gregory’s Chapel; the School’s place of worship.


The spiritual programme in the School is varied. Chapel services are at the heart of what makes our School Anglican. These services allow our students and staff to participate in, and connect with, the Christian Ethos of our School. Students attend weekly, age-appropriate chapel services. Having weekly worship services enables the School community to follow the rises and falls of the Church’s liturgical year, thereby immersing the School in the pattern of the major festivals of Easter, Christmas, Advent, Pentecost and other Sundays in between. In this way, worship at the School replicates the pattern of worship of Anglican Parishes within the Anglican Diocese of Perth. In this context it is worth mentioning that the local Anglican Parish of Quinns-Butler share St Gregory’s Chapel as their place of worship.


Our Chaplain performs many roles at the School, including:

  • Teaching the Faith in accordance with the Anglican tradition
  • Teaching the Christianity, Religion and Life curriculum
  • Pastoral care
  • Colleague and confidant to many
  • Evangelism and mission
  • Liturgy and Spirituality
  • Preparing and teaching members of the community for Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation

Baptism is a sacrament of the Christian church; a ceremony that is a visible sign of an inward spiritual grace. Baptism is the way in which the church receives people into the family of God to live life in a new way and with new meaning. In Baptism, we make serious promises and a commitment to follow Jesus Christ. Through Baptism, we demonstrate a willingness to let go of the old ways of seeing ourselves and others, and endeavour to live according to Christian principles. Infant Baptism provides an opportunity for a family to give thanks for the birth of a child and to pray for God's help in the child's care and nurture. If a student wishes to be baptised or if you are a parent, and would like your child to be baptised, please contact our Chaplain.

Holy Communion

For the majority of Anglicans, the Eucharist (also called “Holy Communion”, the “Lord's Supper,” “The Great Thanksgiving” or “Mass”), is a central and important act of gathered worship. At Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, we offer students the opportunity to be part of this important celebration. Each year, the Year 4 and Year 7 cohorts are given teaching on what Holy Communion is and its relevance and importance in an Anglican School, but much more importantly, its importance for individual Christians in their relationship with God through Jesus. We do this in Year 7 as well as year 4 so that we include students who are new to our school in the annual Year 7 intake. The Chaplains communicate in detail with parents of each of the cohorts involved prior to beginning this teaching with the students. They are available to discuss this further should that be helpful. 


For those who have already been Baptised, the Church offers the rite of Confirmation.  Confirmation is an important “rite of religious passage” where the person being confirmed takes on responsibility for his or her own spiritual growth. For those baptised as infants, this is the opportunity to ‘confirm’ the promises made on their behalf by godparents and sponsors.  In the Anglican Church, candidates are usually at least 12 years old. Candidates would attend a series of confirmation classes that teach more about the faith and Christian responsibilities.
