The values don't only apply to students: all staff are encouraged to carry these values in their day-to-day, including when interacting with students, parents and colleagues as well as in all aspects of their work.
'Carey's cultural foundations are recognised in our values of care, respect and growth. Those values can be seen throughout our history and are displayed through our impact on local, national and global communities and through our thousands of alumni whose education has led them to achieve great things.'
– Tim Chilvers, Chair of the Board
In line with our Baptist values, we are a proudly inclusive community. Diversity matters to us.
We respect, celebrate and nurture individual, cultural and societal diversity. We recognise that individuals are unique and positively acknowledge and affirm the oneness and equality of humankind in all its dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical ability and religious or political beliefs.
At Carey, we adopt a whole-school approach to providing an environment of mutual respect, fairness, equity and justice. We believe that all students, staff, parents and alumni should be treated with dignity and respect and we seek to provide an environment that is safe, supportive, inclusive and free from discrimination so that their physical, emotional and intellectual needs can be nurtured and developed.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We respect their Elders past and present and recognise the injustices endured by the First Nations peoples of this country.
We are committed to working with our community to implement and continually improve practices that foster diversity, inclusion and belonging within our school environment and within our community more broadly.
