Our educators strive to see children flourish in the Australian Curriculum. Our teachers use a variety of different teaching methodologies to inspire learning and connection towards the core curriculum concepts.

Relationships are foundational to how we approach Pastoral Care at Carey. We invest in each child’s character and grow an attitude towards resilience, perseverance, problem-solving, mindfulness and peace-making.

The Build-up Zone (BUZ) Program integrates with our school culture and teaches social and emotional life skills to each student. The course covers topics such as understanding emotion, self-regulation, communication with friends, and conflict resolution.

Our Pastoral Care Program is both relational and consistent with high behavioural expectations. Carey’s values seek to guide a child’s character and behaviour as we work to create an environment where each student has the opportunity to flourish.

Our Chaplain provides relevant learning opportunities that align with the Bible and our values. The Chaplain also facilitates programs to support student’s social and emotional wellbeing.

The core Carey values of Courage, Respect, Humility, Integrity and Kindness make up the pillars of why we do what we do and provide the foundation from which we seek to share the love and grace of God. Our values provide the framework for all that we do at Carey, including teaching and learning.
To set a standard of educational excellence in Australia as an institution whose ethos and practice is based upon Christian precepts.
To equip young people to be of Godly character and influence. We achieve this by challenging and encouraging students to seek personal excellence as lifelong learners in their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social development.
