This year, Deborah and I have had the privilege of lecturing the Intermission Class “Exploring God’s Word”, where we have explored the Scriptures through the 6 acts: Creation, Fall, Covenant, Jesus, the Church and New Creation.
In our two years teaching this class, we have been amazed at the questions and wonderings of young people as they dive deeper into the collection of stories that make up the grand story of God’s Word.
Every year our final assignment involves students creatively presenting the Story of Scripture. We have had spoken word poetry, paintings, youtube clips, Ted-talk style presentations, an original song, and even a Minecraft video!
This picture is of McKayla Sinclair, presenting her carved whakairo depicting the story of Scripture (if you see her around, ask her what the different parts mean!). For us, it was a beautiful depiction of the imagination that is sparked when we encounter Scripture as “our story”.

We're taking a break from Chapel until Semester Two starts.
Next Chapel will be Tuesday 27th July.


We'll have lunch on Monday at 12.40pm (this is a catch up from Queens Birthday weekend).
But, there's no lunch on Tuesday.


Can you help?

I have a wondering? A friend of my (now deceased) mother rang me yesterday from Powley Village Blockhouse Bay. She wondered if a few Carey students would be willing to preach a ten-minute sermon to mostly 70 plus year-olds at their Sunday chapel service once every two or so months.

If this is something you would be willing and able to do please contact Phil - email him at and he'll connect you. 


You will all be busy with final assessments – we are praying that as you work through these that there would be life-giving insights of truth and grace that would encourage you and turn your eyes every-more towards Jesus.

Please remember that there are resources on CareyOnline to help you with assessment writing (10 Essentials), the library team are there to help with finding appropriate research /resources and referencing questions, and the Peer Writing Team are also available to help.

The Paihere Student Support team (Tanya and Jordyn) can also help direct you to the appropriate support. If you have questions about the assessment question or task please get in touch with your teacher!


You should have confirmed your course selection with Neroli by now for Semester two. If not, please get in touch with her next week. Thank you!


Do you want some support with assignment writing? Do you know about our Peer Writing Assistants? We have a new Peer Writing Assistants (PWAs) team who have volunteered their time to work with students to help them with academic writing and academic literacy.

Talk to the library team or the PWA team if you want to know more about what a PWA can do for you! Thank you Rebecca Pullen, Susanna Denby, Grace Paddison and Jono Edmeades!

The team won’t write your assignment for you ?, but WILL help you with the process of writing and give you feedback on the overall structure of your work. If you would like help with your assessments, you are able to book time with one of our PWA team.

Appointments can be in-person on campus, or online (Zoom etc). For an appointment, please contact the library (NOT the PWA team) as below:
For an extended one-to-one booking (30 minute or 60 minute options) 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
Email the library with your preferred time and you will be given an appointment.  Confirm your appointment time within 48 hours.
If you have questions, feel free to talk with any of the library team.
