From the Head of Middle School

Michael Nelson

At the beginning of the year it can be a bit of a challenge to switch back into ‘school routine’, although for many families it is definitely time to move back into a more structured part of the year. The notion that it takes time to develop or re-form habits is interesting when applied to the summer holiday period – there is a stark contrast from lazy days at the beach, regular family celebrations, sleep ins, fewer commitments, free time, televised sport each evening, and being in a smaller family group to that of the daily routines of a school term, with its earlier mornings, classes, competing demands, meetings, expectations, rules, being a …

Sports News


Welcome back to all students and families to Carey Sport for the 2018 school year. There were a number of fantastic activities conducted over the summer months – top of the list were the two international sports tours to the USA (Basketball) and Spain (Soccer). Both trips were an outstanding success, with all students gaining a brilliant insight into the sporting and cultural diversities of these two great countries. We also had a number of sports camps and clinics in January: the First XI cricketers toured Adelaide, the rowers were hard at work at their annual Nagambie Camp, our dive team honed their skills at a two-day clinic, and we had fantastic parent group led initiatives in junior cricket and tennis. Huge thanks to all staff and parents who led these events.
