Coffee to Go

A selected group of students in Years 9 through 12 - our real coffee aficionados - recently took part in a one-day barista course, on site here at PCACS, focusing on a combination of coffee art and its associated hygiene procedures.

Based out of our Italian Cafe kitchen, the students worked diligently through the Accredited Barista and Coffee Art course, and emerged with a good grasp of best practice within the industry, as well as some very practical - and extremely decorative - skills, as displayed in the pictures below.

Our budding baristas are now practicing their newly acquired skills in the Italian Cafe on week-day mornings, so parents can look forward to works of art as well as cups of coffee and coco when next they visit! 


Junior Cross Country

Congratulations to all our Junior School runners who took part in this year's Inter-House Cross Country Carnival on Friday 26 May 2017.  We were blessed with almost perfect running weather, and you all gave it your best - well done!  The tally was especially tight, but special congratulations to Moody House, who won through by a handful of points to claim this year's Shield.  Well done, Moody!


Year 9 Camp

Our Year 9 cohort recently enjoyed a three-day camp at Mornington Camp, working through a programme designed to focus on leadership, communication, trust, support and teamwork.  In spite of variable weather (from sunburn conditions on day one, through to torrential rain on day three), our students threw themselves into a range of activities, including archery, canoeing, high ropes, low ropes, and wall climbing.  Their energy and enthusiasm were palpable, and everyone - staff and students alike - came away from the experience with a fresh sense of purpose, and a determination to tackle the world head-on.


Principal's Commissioning & 10th Anniversary Service

Peter Carnley Anglican Community School had cause for a double celebration earlier this term, as it marked the 10th Anniversary of the School's foundation, alongside the Commissioning of its new Principal, Ms Felicity House.

Staff and students were joined by a host of dignitaries, including The Right Reverend Kate Wilmot, Administrator of the Diocese of Perth, and The Right Reverend Dr Peter Carnley AC, our Patron.  They were joined by Mrs Barbara Godwin OAM, Chair of the Board of the Anglican Schools Commission, The Reverend Peter Laurence OAM, CEO of the Anglican Schools Commission, Mr Jeremy Ludlow, the newly installed Chair of School Council, and a number of Council members, all of whom were keen to welcome and encourage Ms House in her new role.

As part of the service, Dr Carnley blessed new 10th anniversary badges which were then distributed to all staff and students, and also blessed a gorgeous cake which was enjoyed by one and all.


Student Leadership Team Induction

Congratulations to our 2017 student leaders, who were inducted into their new roles at a recent Principal's Assembly.  Caitlin Gascoigne and Jarred Van Riel take up the newly created roles of Head Girl and Head Boy respectively, with Hannah Kruger and Max Riseley as their deputies.  We also inducted new House Captains, Courtney Monego for Lindbeck House, Matthew Ryan for Murray House, James Von Kelaita for Moody House, and Hollie Zaragoza for Laurence House.
