As part of our commitment to community service, the Carey Medal recognises the people in our community making positive change.
The Carey Medal represents this important commitment. It is presented to a member of the Carey community (a past or present student, staff or parent) in recognition of exceptional and outstanding service to the wider community either within the state, nationwide or internationally.
