Southern Telegraph - - News - AI­den Boy­ham

Peter Carn­ley Anglican Community School in Kwinana cel­e­brated an his­toric oc­ca­sion last Friday, when its Cal­ista Cam­pus re­ceived an of­fi­cial bless­ing from the world’s first fe­male Anglican Arch­bishop.

Arch­bishop of Perth Kay Goldswor­thy per­formed the of­fi­cial bless­ing of the school cam­pus, which first opened its doors at the start of the 2017 school year.

Arch­bishop Goldswor­thy was joined at the bless­ing by a num­ber of other spe­cial guests, in­clud­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Anglican Schools Com­mis­sion Rev­erend Peter Lau­rence, school coun­cil chair­man Jeremy Lud­low, foun­da­tion chair­man Keith Lind­beck and City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams.

Dur­ing the ser­vice, Mr Lud­low and Mr Lind­beck both shared sto­ries about the pur­chase and re­fur­bish­ment of the cam­pus, which has seen a rapid rise since plans were first put in place in 2015.

School prin­ci­pal Felic­ity House ear­lier thanked staff for their in­stru­men­tal role in build­ing the culture at the new school, with Arch­bishop Goldswor­thy later per­form­ing the of­fi­cial bless­ing.

The school in Cal­ista serves as Peter Carn­ley Anglican Community School’s early learn­ing cam­pus, cater­ing for stu­dents from kin­der­garten to Year 1.

Its se­cond cam­pus is based in Wel­lard and caters for stu­dents from Years 2 to 12.

Arch­bishop Goldswor­thy was in­stalled as the eighth Arch­bishop of Perth in Fe­bru­ary, her ap­point­ment mak­ing her the high­est ranked fe­male Anglican clergy in a land­mark mo­ment for the Church.
