Dear Parents and Carers


Week 3 has been a celebration of our Vibrant Community in the Carbrook Junior School. As parents, grandparents and special friends have shown up for their loved ones, it has been a timely reminder of the value of the partnership that we share. What better way to celebrate our vibrant community than to have it highlighted in our logo refresh.


I have been privileged enough to be part of the Calvary community as a foundation Carbrook student and now have been working here as an employee for many, many years. Our updated logo nods to the past and history of our community and also encompasses the bright future that our College looks towards.


To see more on this, here is a video link from Cherylynne, our Principal and CEO:

Prep and Stage 1 Swimming Carnival

On Tuesday, the Prep and Stage 1 students travelled to the Bethania Aquatic Centre to showcase some of the skills learned in the recent swimming lessons. It was encouraging to see students swimming with increasing confidence. Our year 6 leaders came along to serve and assist in running the carnival. They did an outstanding job in communicating clearly and cheering on their younger peers.

World Teacher's Day

As parents, we know that it truly takes a village to raise a child. The team approach to educating the children at Calvary is evident. Every interaction students have with a staff member is an opportunity for them to be shaped into the fearfully wonderful creation God has called them to be.


As we approach World Teachers Day next Friday, it’s fitting to acknowledge the incredible work of our teachers. The energy and passion they bring to serving our students and their families is next level and we are blessed by this every day.  

Lost Property

Friendly reminder - Lost property has been moved to the walkway between the Gotfredsen and Ann-Doyle building (Prep and Stage 1). Reminder to name all your child’s items so that we can things back to the owners. You are most welcome to check for any of your child’s items also.

End of Year Awards Services

As the end of the year approaches, we take time to look back and celebrate achievement and growth of our students in many different areas. This year the junior school students will be recognised during an Awards Assembly, Sports Award evening, CAPA Soiree and Celebration. Please see the letter attached outlining the awards that will be presented at each of the events. If your child is receiving and award at any of these events, you will receive an email alerting you to this.
