Carey Baptist Grammar School is proud to announce the launch of its new Family Business Directory. This Directory is provided as a free service to encourage the support and promotion of businesses within our community, while also strengthening the community and building new relationships between members especially during this period of considerable economic disruption.
The sense of community is one of the defining features of the Carey journey for so many of our families, and this directory is another way we can enhance that experience. Supporting local businesses from within the Carey community can create an efficient and effective result for both the customer and the business owner. Having that common ground provides a greater level of trust and a sense of connection in the relationship, in turn ensuring the best level of service. Additionally, every purchase or service we access from a small business helps to improve the local economy by creating and sustaining jobs.
As a current Carey parent, we invite you to promote your business on the Directory and to locate goods and services provided by Carey families around Melbourne, Australia and the world!
Carey is committed to supporting our community at this challenging time. Along with other measures, including the Carey Student Fee Support Fund and discounted school fees, the Directory is a way we can help to ease the effects of COVID–19 and into the future for our families.
A business listing on the Carey Family Business Directory is voluntary and free and is open to business owners who are current parents at Carey. We will look to expanding our database next year to enable our broader Carey community to participate.
Please contact Katie Hunt – Alumni and Community Manager for more information.
