Dear Parents and Carers


What a fantastic end to the year! I am blown away by how the students have shown joy and kindness towards each other in the last week of term. It has been an exciting week of class parties and lots and lots of secret blessings. I trust your child has had a wonderful year worth of learning and connection.

Our year 6 students were affirmed in a formal assembly on Monday morning. This is a special tradition where staff are able to speak over the students a message of encouragement. It is important that all our students are hearing what we see as their God-given potential as they continue their journey into Middle and Senior School.

Student reports for Semester 2 will be available for parents to download from Parent Lounge via the app or website, from 5.00pm Friday 1 December. Please see further information attached in communications today.

Community Facebook Groups

Each year, we create new closed Facebook groups for each Stage. These are groups for parents only and promote the weekly learning and activities of that Stage.

Our community Facebook group will now be managed in the same way. As we are conscious of the privacy and security of our Calvary members, we will be archiving the current Calvary Christian College - Carbrook Junior School Community Facebook group at the end of Term 1, 2024.


We are asking all families to join our 2024 community group, ready for the new year. Administrators will approved membership of current and 2024 families. You can find this by searching the group name;

Calvary Christian College – Carbrook Junior School Community Group 2024


Between now and the end of Term 1, we encourage you to scroll through some of the precious memories in our current Facebook group before it is discontinued.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support in this space.


Please don’t forget to sort your booklists by December 13. If you are having any issues with your on-line ordering, please see below a link to the Campion Help Site.


Those who select to have their book packs delivered to school, can collect these from the Carbrook campus Location (Green Room) between 8.30am – 10.00am on Friday 12 January, 2024.

Real Life Christian Church Christmas

If you are looking for a Christmas Service to attend this year, Real Life Christian Church is hosting services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.


The Christmas Eve Service commences at 4.30pm, preceded at 3.45pm with a fantastic Afternoon Tea served in the Courtyard, and the Christmas Day service will commence at 9.00am in the main Auditorium.


All are welcome to attend!

End of Year

As the school year comes to an end, planning is under way for an exciting 2024. Early January, a welcome letter will be emailed out to families and following this, we will email our class letters from the teachers to students and parents.


We will see everyone again at our Book Drop Off morning on Friday 19 January 2023 and will be ready for our first day of the new school year the following Monday 22 January.


On behalf of myself and the staff here at Carbrook, we wish all our families a very happy Christmas and a safe and restful break. Thank you for another sensational year!


Be Blessed
