Principal's Welcome Message
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I look forward to a year full of challenging, interesting and enjoyable learning experiences while assisting with the process of having each student reach their full potential.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a JK to Grade 8 Catholic Elementary School located in the wonderful community of Carlisle where staff, volunteers and community agencies work together as a team to meet the specific needs of our students and school. We endeavour to offer educational opportunities within a safe and nurturing environment. It is our aim to provide our students with a Catholic education which will help them to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. We are always reaching higher, whether it is in academics, athletics or community service.
We thrive in a cooperative partnership that involves the school, the pastoral team of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and the home in the exalted mission of Catholic education. With Catholic education as our common purpose, our Catholic faith will be at the forefront of all that we do. We will strive to ensure a caring and collaborative environment that promotes a love of learning and cherishes the unique God-given gifts of each individual.
We are proud of the staff at our school and trust that you will appreciate the professionalism, enthusiasm and dedication that we offer as we co-operate with you, the parents and guardians, in providing the best possible education for our students. A school is just a building. What makes it special are the people inside; working together, celebrating together, helping each other and building a wonderful school community.
Communication between home and school is very important. Please do not hesitate to call or write a note to make an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss any questions or concerns.
I look forward to meeting everyone in our school community and to working together for the benefit of our children. I extend my wishes for a happy, productive and successful school year!
Yours in Catholic Education,
