Welcome to Our Lady of Mt Carmel School Mullewa.
The school was established in 1914 by the Presentation Sisters and their mission statement still continues to be relevant today. 'With a pioneering spirit, Our Lady of Mt Carmel School, Mullewa aspires to foster Christian Community living in harmony with each other and the environment'.
We bring this mission alive by actively participating in our call to evangelise, to proclaim the Good News. We are about developing an active faith community to 'Love one another as I have loved you" - our school motto.
Our Lady of Mt Carmel is a thriving co-educational school and caters for approximately 60 students (numbers vary from year to year) from Kindergarten to Year 6 with each being a composite class.
The school has strong links with the parish and community. Parental involvement is also an integral part of the school life and it is through this that the School Board and the P&F Association are able to provide the most needed resources. Parent helpers are most welcome in the classrooms.
As part of the system requirements, the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia is used as a teaching/learning and planning tool in all learning areas. The school's Evangelisation Plan, via the Religious Education Learning Area is dedicated in developing the whole child (intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally) based on the Gospel values of the church. All students K - 6 have acess to the ever changing world of technology, utilising iPads, laptops, interactive smartboards and display abilities in each room of the school. The whole school is interconnected via hardwiring or Wi-Fi, which makes acessing information a breeze.
Our Lady of Mt Carmel School continues with the philosophy of the RAISe (Raising Achievement in School) initiative and this year we are in the fourteenth year of its implementation. This year the Geraldton Region is commencing a journey with Lyn Sharratt to further develop the skills of staff in the use of data to drive teaching and learning. Stay tuned as we share what happens in our school.
