From 1923 to 2023, the role of School Captain has been held in high esteem at Carey. Being selected as a School Captain is an honour, and for so many of our students over the past 100 years, it has been the opportunity to develop the leadership skills needed throughout their careers.
On Tuesday 20 June we celebrated 100 years of School Captains with a reunion event, gathering over 50 past leaders from near and far in the Mellor Museum at the Kew campus. Fellow School Captains were able to share their unique experiences during their time at school, create new connections and come together to celebrate the School’s milestone. Guests enjoyed a lunch, a centenary commemorative photo and a heritage walk of the Kew campus.
2023 School Captains, Charlie Connell-Tobin and Greta Wansbrough, addressed the attendees with a welcome and thank you speech.
‘It has been our honour and privilege in 2023 to continue the legacy of yours and to reflect on the progress made over the past 100 years. During my time at Carey, I have learnt the significance of our community and our emblem that symbolises all those who have come before us and prompts us to give back to other as we move into the future’. - Charlie Connell-Tobin
Notable attendees included Founder of The Resilience Project, Hugh Van Cuylenburg (1998) and 2022 Carey Medallist, Bruce Murray (1960).
