Carey Baptist College, Forrestdale, Western Australia
Carey Baptist College Forrestdale was established by Carey Baptist Church in 2016 as a missional platform to equip young people within the community to be of Godly character and influence. The College is a centre of learning, focused on effective teaching and holistic education, providing support and community for the whole family.
Carey Forrestdale is a unique expression of the Carey vision, utilising the beautiful natural surroundings to incorporate an outdoor learning focus within the diverse curriculum. These rich learning experiences, facilitated by skilled educators, see students encouraged to explore their strengths and God-given talents.
Carey Forrestdale is co-educational and currently educates students from Kindergarten to Year 8, growing each year to eventually offer Kindergarten to Year 12. We serve to equip students for optimal choice at the conclusion of Year 12 and we are committed to honouring God in all that we do.
Carey is a highly relational community of faith on mission in the world. As such, how we live and serve together matters. Mission, faith and relationships are three words that are used to describe Carey. In order to ensure that we remain a relational community of faith on mission in the world, we have identified a number of core values that we believe are essential in shaping us as a community.
- Courage – Not the absence of fear but the ability to act despite it.
- Integrity – Acting in public as you would act in private.
- Humility – Meeting the needs of others before meeting the needs of yourself.
- Kindness – Sharing freely with others.
- Respect – Honouring the God-given dignity of another.
The gospel is the foundation from which we serve, in an environment that respects the diversity of our students, their families and the broader community. As such we believe that we ‘earn the right to speak’ by delivering an excellent education to our students in an environment that values courage, integrity, humility, kindness and respect.
With an open enrolment policy, we understand that not all families will have a Christian faith, so we strive to create an environment where students are supported as they consider their spiritual development and objectively examine the teachings of the Bible.
A vacancy has arisen for a suitably qualified and enthusiastic Education Assistant within our Kindergarten team. Applications via the school website.
