We've Nearly Made it!

I don't know about you, but I am ready to start my musings about life with something other than, "What a [insert period of time] this has been!" But, what a semester this has been! 

Coming out of a lengthy lockdown, navigating traffic lights, normalising mask mandates, getting shattered by rain (remember that time Carey flooded?!?), bundling up in the cold weather, we've all been through a wild half-year. Oh, and there's also been our studies, work, church and family dynamics, non-Covid-sicknesses, and so much more. Needless to say, we are different people now, or at least I am.

But (and this is a very important, "but"), we've nearly made it! And bravo for simply surviving what has been a trying time. I hope that you pat yourself on the back, take a nap, leap into the air at a beach, pour a glass of your favourite drink, and relax for the next couple weeks. 

Whatever you do to recharge, I pray you do it knowing you have truly earned it. Finish well, and rest hard. 


Semester Two Begins 25 July

After the mid-year break, semester two begins Monday, 25 July. There will be a pōwhiri for new students and staff beginning at 8.30am. We'd love to have you there to welcome new members of the Carey whānau.

Enrolment/Re-enrolment for Semester Two

Reminder to returning students: Please check with Neroli and confirm re-enrolment for semester two.

Overcoming Racial Faith

Don't forget about the upcoming Carey Conversation with Dr Willie Jennings.

Carey is privileged to host Dr Jennings for a conversation on gospel and race, and we invite you to register now for this free event.
