Peter Moyes Anglican Community School held its sixth Peter Moyes Day on July 24.

Principal Julian Dowse said the 16-year-old school was named after the man who helped set up the Anglican Schools Commission in 1985.

Mr Dowse said they always invited guest speakers who had a personal connection to Mr Moyes, or to Christ Church Grammar School where he was headmaster from 1951 to 1981.

This year, Christ Church chaplain Frank Sheehan and Assistant Bishop of Perth Jeremy James were guest speakers.

Head girl Caitlin Paroczai and deputy head boy Mark McKane led the prayers. Year 12 student Sophie Todd read the lesson.

�The purpose is to celebrate the life of the school,� Mr Dowse said.

�It is our recognition of the man and the school and the values on which our school is based.�

Mr Dowse said the school would host the Synod of the Diocese of Perth in October.
