Our students are developed and nurtured as responsible learners, who recognise the benefits of self-discipline and balance, and understand the value of personal as well as academic growth.
The secondary curriculum offers a breadth of opportunity for all our students in a wide range of learning areas including:
- Theology & Spirituality
- Health & Physical Education
- Humanities and Social Sciences (History and Geography)
- Language other than English (LOTE) – Japanese
- Science & Digital Technology
- Performing & Creative Arts (Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts)
- Design and Technologies (Food and Textiles)
A rich foundational experience in a broad selection of subjects is provided in Years 7 and 8. Learning is deepened in Years 9 and 10 where, in addition to the core subjects, students are encouraged to select from a wide range of elective subjects.
Students in Years 9 and 10 undertake a guided Pathway course to assist with making informed decisions about their senior secondary education. Students enrolled at Mount Carmel have a guaranteed place at Guilford Young College.
The content, structure and teaching practice of our curriculum in the final two years of education are deliberately and specifically designed to challenge students and to comprehensively prepare them for the rigours of senior secondary education.
By the time students complete Year 10, our curriculum will have provided them with the key knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to transition to the next level of their education. Preparation for the transition to further education and course counselling are part of the Year 10 program.
They will be developed and nurtured as responsible learners, who recognise the benefits of self-discipline and balance and the value of personal as well as academic growth.
Our curriculum is designed for all students to achieve academic excellence by developing within them:
- A confidence in their own abilities
- A high level of accountability
- A desire for students to achieve the highest standard they can
- A strong understanding of the basis of academic progress and achievement
- A capacity to build a personal vision for the future means being engaged with a curriculum which is comprehensive, relevant and topical.
Our curriculum gives students freedom and permission to explore, question, evaluate and create.
