This family of four was part of the Carey College community until they moved to Cambodia to work with Hagar International, caring for children and disadvantaged families through-out Asia. Prior to that David ran his own manufacturing business in Auckland.
"We chose Carey College because it is family based and has a strong Christian focus. The small roll is a huge benefit as it has a more personal touch. The teachers are passionate about bringing out the best in our children, nurturing and developing the unique skills and gifts of every child. Carey College has been an excellent choice for both our son and daughter and we know that these vital first few school years have helped form a strong foundation for their lives."
Lyndon was a foundation secondary pupil of Carey College, twice winning awards at the National Science Fair. He has a DPhil in computer science from York University, a B Com and a BSc from the University of Auckland, and a BA (Theology) from the University of Oxford. He has been a Vice President of Barclays Capital investment bank in London, and is presently Pastor (Morning Congregation) of the Auckland Baptist Tabernacle church.
"Studying at Carey College is something I look back on with thankfulness. It is a place where academic study is important, but also where knowing God is given the highest priority. Carey College is a small school: maybe you wonder how Carey will prepare your child for later life, whether they’ll be able to study at a particular university or get the hoped-for job? My CV may help to convince you that Carey won’t limit what children can do after they leave this school. But if that is all you are looking for in a school, I want you to see that you haven’t seen the most important thing about Carey. I want you to see your child’s spiritual needs are their greatest needs, far more important than academic achievement and worldly success."
Emilie undertook all her primary and secondary schooling at Carey College before studying Bio-Medical Science at Auckland University. She then en-listed in the New Zealand Army where she completed Officer training and is currently undergoing further training with the Army Medical Corp.

"My education at Carey College has been a springboard to allow me to do what I am doing now and face the challenges as they come along. Right from year one in everything we did we were taught to use initiative and think things through for ourselves. Being in such a small school meant that we had to learn how to get on with other age groups and people. Classes got smaller the further I went, and we had to interact with teachers at a more adult level. The education I received at Carey College has benefited me academically and socially since I left school, but my parents chose Carey for my brothers and me because they believed we could not be fully equipped for life if they tried to separate faith and education. I agree. "
An internationally recognized leader for over 25 years, Carey College is a small school by design. As a small school we have the flexibility, small classes, and course options that enable us to grow each child's knowledge, values, faith and skills. Children are known by staff who pray for them daily. Parents are known by staff who work in partnership to craft the best possible schooling for each child.
