In an exponentially changing world, students must maintain pace and relevance. They must make mistakes, pivot, and then try again. They must be encouraged to develop and build on their enterprise skills and Carey’s 10 Attributes of a Positive Learner, as these will enable them to become wise independent learners.
In a project commissioned by the City of Manningham, students across all year levels at Junior School Donvale were recently involved in creating a permanent art installation at Ruffey Lake Park in Doncaster East.
The Carey Celebrates Literature Festival was launched in style on Tuesday night with a presentation from Academy Award winning animator Leo Baker.
Last week, each of our school sections paused to reflect on the sacrifices of those who have gone before us, including the 40 Old Carey Grammarians who lost their lives in World War II.
Founders Day is one of the most special days in the Carey calendar. It provides an opportunity to reflect on the courageous people who had a vision for Carey. Through dedication and commitment, these founders created the foundations of the great school that Carey is today.
We are very proud of Carey’s 2016 Year 12 results. These results affirm the ethos, culture and direction of our school, and they reflect the dedication and persistence of our students over many years.
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.
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.
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.
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.
