Spiritual Life

Spiritual life

Positivity, optimism and faith

We are proud of the spiritual foundations of our school. Spirituality is an important part of the whole person and helps shape the girls and their attitudes to life. We challenge each student to develop her own moral compass guided by an awareness of faith, in conjunction with the School’s wider positive education focus.

Our Chapel of St Michael and All Angels is the spiritual heart of Perth College, consecrated in 1927. We hold regular services here, as well as providing a space for worship and quiet contemplation. In addition to our regular Chapel services, students across the year groups gather each year at St George’s Cathedral in the city to celebrate St Michael’s Day.

We receive frequent requests for the use of our Chapel for weddings and baptisms. Use is reserved for Old Girls, staff members and the broader Perth College community. For more information on our Chapel, click the button below.

Beliefs and Values

We believe in helping our girls make decisions in life with care, courage and confidence. Our Beliefs and Values department works hard to encourage our girls to develop their own spirituality through a range of challenging and enlightening programs tailored to each year level.

In the Junior School, we focus on instilling the basics of Christianity. In the Senior School, we focus on global Anglicanism, faith and spirituality. Students in Years 7 – 10 participate in subjects including Bible Studies, Philosophy, Social Justice and Spirituality, while Year 11 students study Philosophy and Ethics 2A. Year 12 students have the opportunity to further undertake Philosophy and Ethics 3A/3B.

We are part of the Western Australian Anglican Schools Association. To find out more about the WAASA, CLICK HERE.
