Principal's Message

Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School!

As a Christ centred community, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School is committed to developing students with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others  and a positive vision for the future.

Mount Carmel is one of Sydney's oldest Catholic schools. It opened on November 1, 1858. A number of Religious Orders have been involved in the school. The Sisters of Mercy (North Sydney) were involved in the school from 1883 to 1991. The Patrician Brothers staffed sections of the school from 1886 to 1963.

Mount Carmel is a single stream school of 120 students catering for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 6 in the Redfern/Waterloo area. The school has a rich cultural mix where students from a variety of cultural backgrounds work together in the spirit of Reconciliation.

We are very proud of our school and the commitment we have to work in harmony with each other and the wider community.

You are very welcome to visit us and arrange a tour of the school.

Mrs Kelly Bouris
Principal
