This last two weeks of this term have been a really good time to reflect on my Carey journey and all the memories I’ve made along the way, as well as the aspects of school that I have really cherished. Finishing my Carey journey has brought a range of emotions. I’m excited for what’s to come after school, sad that my 13-year journey at Carey is coming to an end, grateful that I am able to come to such a great school that provides so many opportunities and is such a supportive environment, and a sense of achievement knowing that I have nearly completed this wonderful journey and all the friendships I’ve made and accomplishments I’ve had along the way.

Carey sport has been one of the largest aspects of my Carey journey and is one of the things I will miss the most. It’s a special experience to be able to come together with a group of friends, all striving to accomplish the same goal, training together twice a week and then playing a game of your chosen sport together. For me, this came through cricket and football. I’ve always loved sport and from Year 7 when I looked over to Dunshea Oval and saw the First XI or the First XVIII, I always dreamt of getting the opportunity to play for both. I did get the privilege to play for both of these teams and it is where I made some of my greatest memories at school. Being able to compete and train alongside some of my best mates was something that I’ll remember forever. This will be the part of school I miss the most.

After two years of COVID-19-interrupted sport seasons, this year we finally got the opportunity to have a full season of sport. Carey won three premierships this year: girls hockey, netball and boys volleyball. For the First XVIII Boys Football Team, the year consisted of many up and downs. Being able to captain the side was a great honour. Every single boy on the team is someone that I can call a friend and am so lucky to be a part of it.

This year has been a great year, not only on the sporting field but off it as well. These memories will be ones that I will cherish forever. I’m going to greatly miss the School but am so thankful the all the opportunities that I’ve had along the journey.
