Our Power Values

Our aim is for every child to leave with the power to make a positive change in the world. Through our subjects there are five themes that we believe are integral with teaching children how to become powerful adults.

We ensure that these themes run through our subjects. Children learn about 5 areas of power - Education, Religion, Resources, People and Legacy.

Our aim for your child by the time they leave Mount Carmel.
Social Justice is about transforming lives. It is about giving people with multiple disadvantages the support they need to turn their lives around.

As Catholics we look to the six areas of Social Justice to ensure that your child is being made aware of the social issues in society so they can make a change. We teach your child this through:

Dignity of the Human Person
Family and Community
Solidarity and the Common Good
Rights and Responsibilities
Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
