Anglican Schools Ethos Statement

Anglican schools in Western Australia are distinctively Christian communities, fulfilling the Gospel imperative to teach the faith and nurture the young.

Anglican schools:

For 150 years Anglican schools in Western Australia have been centres of excellence in teaching and learning, pastoral care, worship and service. Located in Perth and a growing number of regional centres, Anglican schools are diverse in nature and character, as is the Anglican Church itself. From long established single-sex to newer co-educational schools, day and boarding, at various tuition fee accessibility ranges, Anglican education is the second largest grouping of non-government schools in Western Australia. Anglican schools are active participants in the mission of the Church, encouraging young people to consider a personal response to the Christian faith, and to develop an appreciation of other religious traditions. Anglican schools provide young people with opportunities to develop an understanding of the beliefs and practices of the Anglican Church through religious education programs, worship, and community service programs.

Anglican schools provide the whole school community of young people, staff and parents with an environment in which all members may grow in faith.
