Carey’s Centenary Fair was a blast for everyone who got involved. As students, we were able to explore and enjoy our school through a different lens of creativity and fun as well as getting to celebrate Carey’s centenary milestone with an amazingly well put together fair.

Our Junior School area for the younger kids was an absolute hit with music and magicians and all the bigger kids loved the rides and games opportunities that were running and enjoyed being in the company of their friends and peers. The atmosphere on the day was electric and it was amazing to see, from a student’s perspective, how our community came together to revel in all our achievements.

It was also great to have some of our alumni come back on the day. One of the highlights were the interviews with Carey sports people: Meg Lanning, Ahmed Kelly, Jess Hansen and Jack Viney.

The rides were also another stop for excitement. Whether you wanted to experience the fear and adrenaline of going on the Hurricane or enjoy something a bit less daunting in that of the dodgem cars, there was something for everyone.

Speaking of having something for everyone, there were also so many stalls available for the whole Carey community to enjoy. The stalls were operated by many Carey families along with the volunteers who helped out on the day. The amazing variety on offer included delicious delicacies such as cupcakes, Carey centenary merchandise and even amazing homemade items created by the thoughtful members of our community. We are so appreciative of all of the incredible hard work by all to allow the stalls to run as smoothly as possible.

Ultimately, Carey’s Centenary Fair was an amazing day. While the weather at the start of the day looked like it might dampen the celebrations, this was not the case, and Carey students, alumni and families enthusiastically turned up for the festivities. It was great to see all of the Carey community there and we hoped that you all had an amazing time!
