Transforming lives, enriching our community

Carey has a proud and long tradition of supporting talented students from many diverse backgrounds. 

Kyizom (Kym) Tenzin (2018) was born in a refugee camp in India following the Chinese annexation of Tibet. Fortunately, Australian humanitarian Moira Kelly AO arranged for the family to be resettled in Australia, and Kym was able to come to Carey thanks to the generous community support of our scholarship program. 

“The friendships I made at Carey helped me build my confidence inside and outside the classroom. I felt empowered to take advantage of opportunities I would not have had exposure to, or ability to participate in otherwise.” Kym Tenzin (2018)

Your support for our hallmark diversity and inclusivity scholarship, the Access and Equity Scholarship, will provide opportunities for other deserving students like Kym who would otherwise not be able to attend Carey due to disadvantage or financial hardship. 

The scholarship provides an important and practical demonstration of our school’s social justice values. It provides learning and life opportunities that benefit not only the recipient, but also enrich our whole school community.
