Our Lady of Mount Carmel School provides a quality environment for the whole community to use and enjoy. The original buildings here at OLMC are now proudly more than fifty years old while the library and Administration buildings were built in 1999. All facilities are very well maintained and help to provide a safe, functional and aesthetically appealing environment for all staff, students and parents to enjoy and utilise.
The Kindy and Pre-primary play area is shared by both classes at different times throughout the day. This is a multi-tiered area with a covered sandpit and grassed play area. Government funding, along with P&F monies, have allowed for new play equipment and shadesails to be erected in recent years. The bottom oval has a large, well-maintained sandpit area with modern climbing equipment and an overhead shade cover for protection from the elements. The remainder of the play area consists of a large oval area with a modern tennis court that also has the appropriate markings for use as a basketball court. Both the top oval and bottom oval areas have a generous lawn area for children to run and play team sports on. Well-maintained garden beds border each of these areas. Undercover Area
All Year 1-6 classrooms open onto a large undercover area which is used as an extra covered space for students to work in.
All classrooms are a good size, carpeted, air-conditioned and contain a bank of computers that are integrated into the daily class program. Each classroom also has an interactive white board and data projector installed.
The school library is a standalone building housing a comprehensive set of books, DVD’s and other resources for students, teachers and families. Students have regular book changing days and class teachers also use this space for literacy lessons. Science Lab
Our science lab is used by our 2 specialist teachers. It is a place where all students in K-6 have the opportunity to enhance their curiosity, investigation and knowledge of the world around them.
Student Support Room
This area houses a reading recovery room and a room where individuals and small groups can receive extra support as required.
Multipurpose Hall and Classrooms
Thanks to the BER, OLMC has a large modern hall, three multipurpose classroom spaces and a servery. These areas are used for a wide variety of purposes including instrumental music lessons, assemblies, parent and parish meetings and workshops, PE lessons in the winter and much more.
We are most fortunate here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School to have our Parish Church right on site. This means that children, staff and parents have ready access to a variety of liturgies and enables close collaboration between school and parish.
