Chaplain’s Corner


Like so many around the world, I was inspired as I followed the recent events in Thailand as thousands of people were all committed to rescuing the young boys and their coach who were trapped deep inside a flooded cave system.

Act now for your Gen Z’s work future


The pace of change has never been so great nor as disruptive as it is today. Today’s young people will need to innovate in business, communities, government and the global realm to solve emerging challenges and create a fairer society. To do all this they will need to be able to navigate the new work order – where whole career progressions are being altered, new professions are coming into existence and traditional jobs are being swallowed by automation. So how do we prepare our young people for this future?

The Carey Community Forum warmly invites you to hear from Jan Owen AM at a free public event on Thursday 2 August at 7.00pm in …
