A Time to Celebrate

Graduation is tomorrow, and we get to stop and celebrate those who have worked tirelessly to complete their qualifications. Many who are participating completed the bulk of their work while also having to navigate lockdowns and significant disruptions to "normal" study. This is a massive accomplishment, so take time to affirm those who are marking this achievement this weekend.

Also, as you are in the throes and joys of study, we encourage you to keep perspective on what God has called you to. You are doing great work, and we're super proud of you! 

End of semester things to know

Just a reminder that classes go until and including Monday, 12 June. Tuesday and Wednesday classes wrap up the week prior. Also, all assignments MUST be submitted by Friday, 23 June in order to be counted and marked for semester one courses. If you have any questions related to the end of the semester, flick an email to Neroli.

Finally, if you think you may need an extension, contact Neroli, and complete an Application for Extension form.

d12e3ef7-fa13-d80f-2d13-88d31d7405e2.jpgAre you familiar with the Student Handbook? If not, you're missing out. It has helpful information about all sorts of things related to study at Carey. But most importantly, it tells you where you can get help and how your wellbeing and safety as a student are cared for at Carey. That includes what happens if you're sick or have an accident, how to handle student complaints and grievances, and other key resources.

And remember, Tanya and Eugene, the Library staff, Neroli, and the rest of us at Carey are here to support you. Also, check out our Support and Wellbeing webpage for even more helpful information.
