Mental Health

Last week, Eugene and I completed the Mental Health First Aid workshop. We really enjoyed it and as you can see, we also enjoyed lunch.

This workshop provides strategies to guide someone with mental health conditions towards a positive and useful outcome. Part of our role as student support, is to empower students, enhance self-esteem, and hold space for connectedness.

Feel free to swing by and test our mental health skills.

Changes to Carey's Covid Response 

You'll have received an email with these updates, but as a reminder, with the recent government announcement regarding the removal of vaccine mandates, we plan to move ahead with the following changes taking effect from 4 April:

  • Staff and students will no longer be required to present a My Vaccine Pass or sign in to be on campus. All other visitors will still be required to sign in.
  • For weeks 5 and 6 (starting 4 and 11 April), the following courses will remain online: MB532 Introduction to the New Testament; MM6/794 Poverty, Transformation, and the Gospel; MM561 Introduction to Pastoral Care; and MB6/732 Pentateuch.
  • From week 10 (starting Monday, 9 May) all weekly-taught courses will be offered on-site except for MB6/732 Pentateuch, which will remain online for all of Semester One. 
  • Block courses running over April will be on-campus as per timetable.
  • Masking rules remain the same.
Feel free to message Rob if you have any questions.

Library Competition

The competition to identify languages of Bibles from our display in the Library continues for another week. The languages of the two Bibles from last week were:

  1. Romanian: a Balkan Romance language spoken by approximately 26 million people as a native language, primarily in Romania and Moldova
  2. Karen: the Karen languages are comprised of a group of languages spoken primarily in the coastal areas of Thailand and in the lower regions of Burma

It was tough this week with no one getting Karen correct, but people gave it a good crack! Congratulations to all those who got Romanian correct!

As a reminder, all you need to do is correctly identify the language of each Bible. We will contact the winner via email.

Here are this week's photos:
