Principal's Message

Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School, Coorparoo, a co-educational Catholic Primary School providing educational excellence for students from Prep to Year Six.

The Mount Carmel School Community is made up of children, parents, teachers and staff who aim to uphold its motto “By prayer and action we follow Christ” by having a welcoming, inclusive and positive environment where we work together inspired by our actions, faith, and love for all.

We are supported by the extensive resources of the Brisbane Catholic Education Office in providing a broad curriculum choice with emphasis on individual potential and ability, to promote the academic, social, physical, spiritual and emotional development of your child.

As a catholic school, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is an integral part of the parishes of Mt Carmel and Regina Caeli. Catholic values and traditions are taught in a formal religious education program and are the guide for all that we do and teach in the school. One of your most important tasks in this partnership is to assist your child to develop a relationship with God. This relationship can be nurtured by participation in parish and school activities and celebrations.

The staff of our school are committed, professional people who contribute to the reputation of this school in the community. Good people work here and they take their task seriously. It is our belief that the home and school should work co-operatively to develop within children a sense of respect and responsibility towards themselves, others and the environment

I believe that Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a happy school where children are both encouraged and challenged to do their best, to develop their individual talents and most importantly – to develop a love of learning while becoming happy, caring and responsible young people.
In my role as Principal, I strive to make Our Lady of Mount Carmel a welcoming community where adults and children work together in partnership, to help each child learn, grow and develop as a whole person. Mount Carmel is a place where opportunities abound and I encourage families to immerse themselves in our community.

I commend the school to you and trust you find our web site helpful and informative. Please feel free to contact me for further information.
