It is now a cliché to call this year an unprecedented one. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt acutely within our community as staff, students and parents work to respond well to an ever-changing environment. Responding to such change takes its toll on everyone in different ways and to different degrees. As such, I would like to take this opportunity to thank staff, students and parents for their cooperation and contributions to make Term 3 successful amidst circumstances that are less than ideal. As we prepare to rest in the upcoming school holidays, I encourage everyone to work hard at resting and recommend the following article to you from the Gospel Coalition: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/7-ways-to-work-hard-at-rest/
Term 3 is a significant time for Year 12 students and parents as they conclude their High School education, prepare for their final HSC Examinations and contemplate life after school. Over the next few weeks, our school community will endeavour to farewell Year 12 with style via several events. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has made it difficult for school’s throughout NSW to farewell students via the conventional rites of passage and current restrictions continue to limit what we can do as a community. Nonetheless, we are a committed to celebrating the achievements of our students and ensuring they leave feeling loved and supported by the Carey community.
Some activities will take place over the next week to farewell Year 12 students, but the main events such as the formal and graduation will happen in November.
Please pray for our Year 12 students as they prepare for their HSC examinations – particularly that they stay safe and well. To support our students practicably we can, as a community, remember to be COVID safe and practice good hygiene habits.
May you and your family have a blessed holiday.
