Transformed futures for all young people in our school community.
To cultivate a school community of belonging where young people with complex needs can learn and grow socially, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually.
Our Core Values
Three Christian values, love, justice, and hope are at the core of Carbrook Centre. We are motivated by and committed to applying these values in our school community.
Carbrook Centre believe that each young person has an intrinsic value, despite their behaviour and life circumstance. We take on a nurturing role in the young person’s life- offering food, protection, support, encouragement, training, guidance and mentoring. We endure through difficult circumstances and never give up on a young person. We are hopeful for better outcomes in the future.
“If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing… Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance”. 1 Corinthians 13:3,7 (NLT)
Carbrook Centre demonstrate justice through services and practical actions that address the impacts of trauma, and/ or disability on young people’s lives.
We take a relational approach and focus on understanding each young person through communication and developing trusting relationships with them, their families and stakeholders.
We take a restorative approach, modelling respectful communication, and practicing how to repair relationships when they become damaged.
“And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God”. Micah 6:8 (NIV)
Carbrook Centre believe all young people have a hope and a purpose, no matter their situation or life circumstance. This hope drives us to go above and beyond to ensure that students learn and grow socially, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
