Making a positive difference in our communities.
Engaging students in social justice is key to developing young global citizens who are inspired and equipped to create positive change in their communities.
At Carey, we encourage students to think about the world outside of their own experience and inspire them to get involved in various community service activities.
Community service starts from the Junior School, with whole-school participation in fundraisers and awareness campaigns, open discussion about current issues, and active service to the local community. When they move into the Middle School, students have more autonomy over choosing the causes they want to support.
By the time they reach Senior School, most of our students choose to volunteer in their own time on projects like the Homework Club. In this program, our students spend one afternoon a week in Fitzroy Town Hall, helping refugee children with their homework.
We also offer opportunities for students to travel to communities in need around the world, such as Nauru.
