Carinya values the opportunity to connect with parents and develop strong relationships within our community. 

Every term we create these opportunities through our Carinya Connect events.

Whole School Socials are a community-wide event for all of our Carinya families. On the last Saturday of every School Holiday period families are invited to the Tamworth Miniature Railway, located at the top end of Piper St, next to the Botanical Gardens. From 9:30am - 11:30am, children (and parents/carers!) can enjoy a fun social outing with UNLIMITED FREE rides on the miniature trains. Bring along a picnic blanket, some morning tea, hat, sunscreen and enclosed shoes (must be worn by all passengers).

Parent Help Nights occur once per term in week 4 on a Wednesday night at 7:30pm in the Carinya Tamworth Admin Building. These gatherings help to establish new friendships and connections whilst supporting the school through the preparation of resources for our Under 5s events, Kindergarten Preparatory Program and Junior School. There's always some glueing, sticking, cutting and folding to be done as well as great conversation, laughs and fun!

Coffee Mornings are the perfect end to our busy weeks! Drop the kids off then join us outside the Performing Arts Centre (PAC) where Carinya's talented student baristas are waiting to serve you delicious and FREE hot beverages. Coffee Mornings run three times per term in weeks 1, 4 and 8, from 8:15am and all parents and friends of Carinya are invited to come along. You might even run in to some of our friendly staff!
