Welcome from the Principal

Overview: 

It is always a pleasure to welcome people to Carey, whether they are making their first contact, or are families who have associations with the School that go back generations.

 Principal

As the father of two daughters, one a current Carey student, the other an Old Carey Grammarian, I also understand the hopes, questions and anxieties many parents have in considering a new school for their children. I can tell you, from my own experience, and from welcoming so many new Carey families in my time as Principal, that Carey is a friendly and inclusive community.

Why Carey?

Carey parents may be a diverse group — coming from many different cultural, social and religious backgrounds — but there is no doubt that we are all united in a common goal: wanting our children to thrive.

Schools are primarily about young people, and especially about helping them become the best they can be. We offer our girls and boys every opportunity to grow into communicative, creative, critically-thinking, curious and community-minded young adults. Carey students are offered flexible pathways to achieve their goals and develop clear strategies to achieve them. We expect our students to think, problem-solve, reflect and respond to the meaningful feedback they receive.

Making sandwiches for Eat Up

Each year, the 11 schools from the APS join forces to support a charity of their choice. This year's School Captains, Harry Warmington and Eliza Williams, became involved with Eat Up through Kaitlin and Aaron Tait, the co-founders of Spark International, who spoke at one of our Speakers Assemblies earlier this year. After hearing of the amazing work Eat Up does in and around Melbourne, and recognising how privileged they were to go to school each day with a full lunchbox, Harry and Eliza decided that Eat Up was the perfect organisation for the APS to support this year.

Official Opening of the Centre for Learning and Innovation

The Carey community gathered at our Kew Campus on Wednesday 31 August for the official opening of the new Centre for Learning and Innovation. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to showcase the building to visiting dignitaries, Board members, Old Carey Grammarians, parents, and former staff.
