Week 3 @ Carey - Pigs, and more.....

WEEK 3      

The Parable of the Pig (latest NZ Baptist Magazine)

I read a Facebook post this morning about how hard it is to look after yourself. I have found two things to be vital for me. First, you need to listen to your feelings, your body, and ask questions of them. What made you tired? Why did it make you tired? What can you do to get your energy back? Don’t dismiss or stuff your feelings, make friends with them – God gave you feelings for a reason. They alert you to the state of your being.

Second, this self-understanding will lead you to develop a support network (friends). However well you are coping with life right now – you will do better with help. If (like me) you are the independent type, the competitive type, the strong type – you need to practice asking for help (practice giving help as well).

To bring this round to the Pig above – community is vital to human flourishing. It is worth the risk of being known. Read the article, it is in the library…

Our peer writing support is again available in semester two. If you would like help with your academic writing, then we have peer writing assistants available to meet you for a 30 or 60 minute session. To book a session, please email : and include:
  • Your name and student ID number
  • Identify which assessment you are focussing on (course, assessment outline)
  • Identify if you want a 30 minute or 60 minute slot


Please remember that any course or enrolment changes need to be made by Friday 2 August at the latest. Please talk with Neroli Hollis (Academic Registrar:


Carey, like many tertiary organistations, uses Turn It In to check submitted assessments for authenticity and academic integrity. Turn It In compares the submitted assessment with a large database of previous student work, online articles and journals and websites. It then produces a “similarity report” that highlights areas in the assessment where the text matches text from the database, and that could potentially be problematic.

At Carey, we want students to learn how to correctly use and reference original source material (journals, books, websites etc), and so we are now making the Similarity Report available for students in our Level 4 and core Level 5 courses so that Turn It In can be used as a developmental tool. This means you are able to submit your assessment, receive the similarity report, identify and address and problematic areas and then resubmit the assessment (after 24 hours). More information will be sent to students early next week.

Knowing how to read and understand the similarity report is vital – the Library will be holding a session to help explain this on TUESDAY 13th August. TIP SHEETS for students will also be available on CareyOnline early next week. If you have any questions talk to the library team or email


Please remember that a lot of your course material and information sits in CareyOnline – Carey’s Moodle Learning Management System. If you have not logged onto CareyOnline to look at your course information, please do this in the next couple of days (otherwise your teachers will be checking up to see that everything is OK!).

If you are having trouble logging in to CareyOnline please email Neroli (

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53: 4-5
