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, both Old Carey Grammarians, 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.

Who wears the pants at Carey?

Carey students generally like their school uniform. They tell us that the colours are nice and that they are proud to represent their School in the Carey blue, black and yellow. Late in 2015, a group of interested students began meeting to plan this year’s International Women’s Day Breakfast. Students and staff from Middle and Senior School who were interested in gender issues and gender equity were invited to discuss their opinions and experiences inside and outside the Carey gates. A range of students from across the School gathered to share some deep conversations and to learn from each other.

Year 6 Canberra Visit

In the last week of October, the Year 6 students from our Kew Junior School headed to Canberra for an exciting educational tour of our nation’s capital. Over the course of the week, the students were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
