How ya doing?

You are no doubt taking full advantage of the Study and Reading weeks and making great progress on your work for the semester. You've still got another week after this until we are back to class, so keep up the good mahi.

As always, our support staff will continue to be available to you if you need help with your assessments. Or, if you need just a little encouragement, they are utterly fantastic. So feel free to reach out to Tanya and Eugene in Te Whare Oranga, or Siong and Mei Ling in the library.

And don't forget about the
10 Essentials found on CareyOnline.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

Māori Language Week is an annual celebration held in the third week of September. This year it takes place from 11-18 September. Māori Language Week is part of a larger effort to revitalize the Māori language, an official language of our country. New Zealanders—and indeed, the global community—are encouraged to learn the language and experience the rich culture of the region. We'd love you to participate in the week ahead and karawhiua—give it a go!

On Tuesday, 12 September at noon, feel free to join us in the whare kai for a 45-minute Te Reo Māori learning opportunity with Eugene and Luke. 

Nau mai, haere mai!

Student Focus Groups

Celebrate Our Researching Community

The Carey community regularly produces significant research on a wide range of topics relevant to the church in Aotearoa and across the world. Come celebrate that impact at the CGS Research Conference and Celebration of Scholarship events on 14 September.

Carey Graduate School students will present research at the CGS Research Conference from 9am-5pm. And we will celebrate faculty and students who have contributed to theological research through recently published books, edited works, journal articles, and other ongoing projects at the Celebration of Scholarship from 7-9pm. Both events take place at Carey's campus in Auckland.

Register for the
CGS Research Conference and the Celebration of Scholarship events separately, so we can cater accordingly.


If you are worried about getting your assessments done in time and would like to request an extension, please contact Neroli Hollis. You’ll also need to complete an Application for Extension form.
