After 12 whole years (or 14 if you include kinder), our final week is here.

My journey at Carey began back in 2008 in three-year-old kinder at Carey Donvale. Overall, finishing my school journey comes with mixed feelings. When graduating, there’s a part of us all that is so excited to leave and start the new chapter of our lives with new experiences, travelling, making new memories and more. But there’s also a part that is both sad and maybe even a bit scared: not seeing your friends every single day anymore, missing the Friday music in the quad, leaving the familiar space that for many of us is a place where we have gone to every day for the past six years.


This last week is going to be filled with celebrating and reminiscing about moments of our journey here at Carey. There’s so many activities planned, including the dinners and breakfasts, the dress up days and then finally the big day of time capsules, signing uniforms and the final bell. It’ll be a great way to spend the last week of our high school journey together with friends and as a cohort.

On Monday, we had the first day of our week of celebration, the Leavers Service and Valedictory. I think most people will agree when I say Valedictory was definitely one of the best events of this year and something that will be remembered for a long time. It was such an awesome way to start off our final week.
