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 prior to moving on to 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.
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.

Year 9/10 Elective choices for 2019: 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 2019. 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 2019 Curriculum Handbook outlines the subject offerings. Students are asked to select four 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.
The Curriculum Team will be available for consultation on Thursday 9 August from 3.30pm to 6.00pm 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.
Students will select their subjects via an online system using their student email as their username. To access the online portal, click here then follow the prompts, entering the student email address to obtain a password. The password will then be sent to your daughter’s email address. Once logged into the online subject selection portal, students must select elective subjects in preference order. To make selections please click inside the box and a drop down of subject codes will appear. Select the relevant code and repeat this process in preference order until the selection requirement for each category has been met. A green tick will appear on the right hand side of the page to confirm this. Once selections have been made please ensure you press the save button. Students are required to print a hard copy of their selection form and have it signed by their parent/carer then hand it in to their Clan teacher. The 2019 Online Subject Selections Student Guide details full instructions for use.
If your daughter selects either Athlete Development, Mathematics Methods, Outdoor Education or VET – Certificate I Hospitality she must also complete an additional application form. These can be downloaded here, from the selection portal or a hard copy can be collected from the College Office.
