Peter Carnley Anglican Community School (PCACS) is a young and dynamic school, offering education for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 across two beautiful campuses.

With a contemporary Early Learning Campus in Calista, and an attractively designed Wellard campus for students from Years 2-12, the School provides a nurturing and balanced educational experience for all its students.  Both campuses enjoy open play spaces where physical exercise and nature play is encouraged. 

As educators, our purpose is to take each child on an Educational Journey:  to spark students’ intellectual curiosity; to grow their creativity and capacity to tackle and solve problems; to value work ethic and persistence; enable opportunities to work with others and to show care and compassion. 

Something for Everyone

Peter Carnley Anglican Community School (PCACS) provides a nurturing and balanced education for all our students. Both campuses enjoy open play spaces where physical exercise, exploration and nature play is encouraged.

We strive to create an environment where students can discover their strengths and talents, a place where everyone belongs.It’s the added extras that make PCACS a special community. Through our co-curricular, after-school clubs, pastoral care programmes, camps and excursions, we nurture and develop skills, self-esteem, cultural awareness, leadership and service learning.

With our ‘Personal Best’ philosophy, we encourage each student to be the best person they can be. Pastoral Care underpins everything we do at PCACS. Through our signature ‘Compass Programme’ we walk alongside our students, guiding and supporting them from childhood to adulthood.

Compass Programme

Compass is a Senior School pastoral programme, which provides students with a skillset to journey through school and become self-aware, responsible and resilient adults.  The programme has a strong focus on student wellbeing and includes a broad range of experiences, life lessons and important conversations to guide and support students.  The corner stone programme within Compass is ‘The Rite Journey’, which runs for the duration of Year 9 and provides a rite of passage experience to assist the students on their transition from childhood to young adulthood.  

Throughout a student’s journey in Compass they move through a set of age appropriate themes to gain valuable experience in a wide and varied range of programmes including Peer Support, Friendly School’s, Service Learning, The Rite Journey, Keys for Life, Protective Behaviours, Interhouse Competitions, and many more.  All Senior School students participate in Compass each Wednesday morning during pastoral time. 

Compass is a shared journey between students, families, and mentor teachers.  The programme aims to equip students with a strong foundation to journey beyond PCACS with a focus on wellbeing, a resilient attitude when times get tough, a sense of connectedness within the community, and a drive to help others.

The Science behind 'Play' at PCACS

At Peter Carnley Anglican Community School (PCACS) 'Play' provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. When children play with other children they create social groups, test out ideas, challenge each other’s thinking and build new understandings. 

In Kindergarten, our educators use routine and play experiences in order to create learning environments that encourage exploration and problem-solving with the content being taught intentional.  Our Early Child educators actively support the inclusion of all children in play, help children to recognise when play is unfair and offer constructive ways to build a caring, fair and inclusive learning community.

At PCACS the naturescape play areas and natural environment offers open ended interactions, spontaneity, risk-taking, discovery and a genuine connection with nature.  More importantly, it improves and enhances the child’s dexterity, balance, flexibility and gross motor skills.

Did you know?

  • It has been proven that playing in nature improves mood and reduces depression and mental fatigue
  • When children step outside, they get plenty of opportunities to interact with other playmates. In nature, they naturally connect with others, help each other, share their learning and solve problems together
  • Spending time in nature and outdoors improves children’s ability to focus and concentrate 
  • The benefits of playing in nature are almost infinite. Spending time in nature keeps children’s minds fresh. It exposes them to varying situations where they are forced to learn and adapt to best fit themselves into the prevailing conditions
  • Green plants and vistas reduce stress among highly stressed children. Locations with a greater number of plants, greener views and access to natural play areas show more significant results (Wells & Evans, 2003)
  • Nature can act as a great healing tool for children who suffer from low self-esteem. Children who are exposed to the natural world experience a greater degree of self-control, peace and discipline.

We welcome families to come and visit our Kindergarten classes at the Calista Early Learning Centre (ELC).  We hold Welcome Morning Tours every month but also offer personalised tours for families interested in exploring PCACS for their children.
