Carey Collections is a unified online portal for curating and preserving the history of Carey. The site provides insights into the people, places and events that are significant to Carey and comprises photographs, films, documents, physical objects and much more.
To date, the site features over 4000 items with the oldest being an original letter from William Carey to his son written in India in 1826.
Some other highlights of the collection include:
By breathing new life into archival items that have lain dormant for years, the Carey community will be able to learn more about the evolution of our school.
Since the beginning of the Carey Archives in 1990, it has been a collaborative endeavour. It would be impossible to have access to the thousands of artefacts we have if it weren’t for past students, families and friends of the School donating their Carey items from the past 100 years to the archives.
Similarly, Carey Collections allows you to contribute by commenting on artefacts to share your stories, tag people you recognise and upload your own Carey content. We strongly encourage you to not only browse through the site, but leave your mark on it too.
New items will continually be added to the site, so keep checking back!
