  Sitting playing Settlers of Catan with a group of Year 3 students after school on Tuesday, amidst a heap of others playing Balderdash, chess and pick-up-sticks in the library, it became clear that we are well and truly back into the swing of things at school. Clubs and activities at school provide further social opportunities for Carmel students to meet and play with children ...

Dear Carmel Primary School families, JHUB will soon start work on their carpark (see image above) from Monday 19 February 2024 for a period of approximately 8 weeks. This will have a significant impact on our families during this time. To ensure the safety of your child/ren and to minimise the inconvenience, can we please ask for your help with the following: Kindergarten fami ...

It has been a lovely, positive start to the school year as both campuses have filled with the sounds of chatting and laughter (as well as the whir of the air conditioning as the summer heat continues!). Substantial capital works have been underway during the break, slowed slightly by shipping issues, transport issues and labour shortages, but we’re nearly there and the School ...

The word ‘Hero’ is often overused and misunderstood. Heroes are often ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Here is news for you …… Superman, Ironman, Batman and even Spider-Man are not real!! Sorry to disappoint! Today, the first day of school for 2024, we welcome back three young men. Three ordinary guys who did remarkable extraordinary things. One of the Carmel Scho ...

During JNF Week in March 2016, when Carmel’s Year 6 students were in Kindy, they planted a JNF Tree in the school’s Eco Playground, to provide shade and also as a symbol of JNF WA’s partnership with the families of Merchav Am. Last Friday, the students and their Kindy Tree demonstrated how much they had grown at a special presentation at the Year 6 Valedictory. When the JNF tr ...

Mazal tov Kai Kai felt a bit nervous before his Bar Mitzvah, but also super excited, as he had been practising for over a year for the occasion. Everyone at the Shule has been very supportive of Kai and his learning – the Rabbi was fun and caring, with great jokes to liven the mood. Kai loved the proud look on his parents’ faces and seeing his friends and described having ever ...

Abby explained that the plan had originally been to share a Bat Mitzvah with Zehava, but this didn’t quite work out. Abby’s mum spent much of Friday setting up for her Bat Mitzvah and made some beautiful pastel pink decorations– she also prepared all the catering herself. Abby enjoyed Shule on Friday night, and then had a delicious three-course Shabbat dinner with her family at ...

“So, are all the teachers winding down and finishing up?”, I was asked last week by a friend who is clearly not involved in education. I realised afterwards that I might have overdone my response a little and could even be said to have indulged in a little rant. I was keen to stick up for teachers who are very much still working hard to ensure learning takes place until the ver ...

It has been a busy week at Carmel School and although the end of term is almost visible in the distance, there is still so much left to do. I reassure myself that it feels this way each year, yet we always achieve what we need to in time for the end of term. It’s too early to be looking forward to the break at this stage, but the prospect of some time to read and relax late in ...
