The Catholic School Council (CSC) of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School welcomes all new families to our community. Please see our Welcome Brochure.

Everyone is welcome to attend meetings. Meetings are an opportunity to bring parents together to help foster a strong connection between school, church and families of OLMC.

Meetings follow an agenda and are chaired by the Chairperson of the CSC. Individual issues are not brought to the meeting, but concerns/questions that pertain to the school and school body are always welcome to be added ahead of time to the agenda.

Parents are welcomed to get involved with many activities in the school, through volunteering their time in leading, helping out and attending the various functions. From time to time the Catholic School Council will ask for volunteers for these functions through notices.
