Archbishop blesses campus
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.
