William Carey Christian School
Welcome to WCCS for 2012!
Thursday, 2nd February, 2012
As of today, all of our grades, from Prep through to Year Twelve, have commenced school for the year. We are all looking forward to what we hope and pray will be an enjoyable, memorable and educational year for our school community.
WCCS is getting straight back into the swing of things by starting the year with several important events. For Primary School parents/carers, our first event is the Primary Information Evening, to be held on Tuesday, the 7th of February. This is an important night for parents/carers to attend as it allows you to hear about how your child's classroom operates and to meet both your child's class teacher and the other teachers on his or her grade. The teachers will also provide you will important information about events that your child will participate in throughout the year (such as camps and excursions) as well as information about homework and extracurricular activies.
High School parents/carers will have the opportunity to meet with their children's teachers at the two Meet the Teacher Nights that will take place over Weeks Two and Three. The first Meet the Teacher Night is on Wednesday, the 8th of February and is for parents/carers of students in Years Eight, Ten and Twelve. The second Meet the Teacher Night will take place the following week on Monday, the 13th of February and is for parents/carers of students in Years Seven, Nine and Eleven. All High School families should have received a letter with logon details for PTO online - to access the PTO site, click here or on the PTO link to the right of this article.
Two more important High School events will also be taking place in the next two weeks. Our information night for Year Ten students and their parents (Stepping in to Senior School) will take place in R Block on Wednesday, the 8th of February. The VET Information Night, for those students in Year Eleven who are commencing the study of VET courses will be on Monday, 13th of February, also in R Block.
The Primary Swimming Carnival will be on Friday of Week One and the High School Carnival will be on Monday of Week Two. We pray that the strange summer weather will clear up for these events and that our students, staff and families will have a wonderful time at the carnivals.

“Holidaying” Year 12 Students make use of Library Study Centre
Wednesday, 19th October, 2011
For the first time, William Carey made all the resources of our well equipped library available for the HSC students to use throughout the holidays. With the HSC starting on Monday 17th with Business Studies, followed by English for all students the next day, the library was well patronised with a dozen or so students utilizing the study environment to good effect each day. Some chose to squirrel themselves into a corner, only surfacing for a quick lunch break before getting back into their review of notes, others chose to use the open spaces to study collegially in small groups, stopping to grab a cuppa to revitalise themselves.
