Krispy Kreme FUN-draiser

    The Mount Carmel College Parents and Friends Association is running a Krispy Kreme FUN-draiser to raise FUN-ds that will support the College in providing valuable FUN-ding towards items that directly benefit students at Mount Carmel College.
    Families and Friends of the College have the opportunity to purchase two of Krispy Kreme’s most popular dozen packs.
  • Original Glazed Dozen: $23.00
  • Fundraiser Assorted Dozen: $27.00
    The Parents and Friends Association will make a small profit from each dozen purchased by Mount Carmel College families and friends – the more we are able to sell, the more College initiatives the Association can support.
    Order forms have been sent home to all families, but if it has been misplaced, more are available at the College Office or can be downloaded here:Krispy Kreme Order Form
    Order forms must be returned to the College Office by 3.00pm on Friday 16 August 2019 with full payment (cash or EFTPOS accepted). Alternatively, you can pay using the Qkr! by Mastercard app – the same app that the College uses for canteen orders.
    Due to Krispy Kreme’s strict order policy for FUN-draising orders, no late order will be accepted, nor will any orders without payment.
    Your orders will be available for collection on the afternoon of Arts Evening – Wednesday 4 September from 2.00pm until 4.00pm – from the kitchenette outside the Drama Room. Please ensure that you collect your order on this date as the doughnuts are tastiest when they are fresh. Krispy Kreme do not take responsibility for “old” doughnuts.
    Thank you for supporting the Parents and Friends Association in their FUN-draising drive. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate in contacting the Parents and Friends Association.

2020 Curriculum Handbook

Year 9/10 Elective choices for 2020: Information Session for Students and Parents

Now is the time for our current Year 8 and 9 students to choose which electives they would like to study in 2020. Our secondary curriculum offers a breadth of opportunity for all our students in a wide range of learning areas, and our electives are quite varied and diverse catering for the varying needs and interests of our girls.

Students in Years 9 and 10 have the opportunity to study three elective subjects. The 2020 Curriculum Handbook outlines the subject offerings. Students are asked to select five subjects, and from this they will be allocated three subjects. We do our very best to link in with their preferences, but on occasion, students may be asked to select another subject if that subject does not run. It is important to remember that subject lines are determined upon overall demand for each subject and as a result, there is no advantage to students who make their selections straight away. Students are encouraged to take their time making their choices as it may be difficult to make subject adjustments.

The Curriculum Team will be available for consultation on Thursday 23 May from 3.30pm to 5.30pm in the O’Brien Resource Centre to discuss subject offerings with parents, carers and students, answer questions and explain further the individual sessions. It is an informal, drop-in event, so no bookings are needed.

Selection Process

Students will select their subjects via an online system. Access to this portal and further details will be made available to students on Monday 3 June 2019.

Online Selections

  • Online Selections Open at 4.00pm on Monday 3 June 2019
  • Online Selections Close at 4.00pm on Friday 14 June 2019
  • Hardcopies of Selections must be returned your daughter’s Clan teacher by 4.00pm on Monday 17 June 2019
