I am so very proud of the Class of 2022 and I congratulate them for putting in the hard work necessary to produce these impressive results. Each student has shown such integrity and courage over recent years and for this they are to be commended.

The last full week of term is a good time to reflect on the school year. And what a year it has been! The learning curve has been steep in my first year as Principal at Carmel School, and I have been grateful to listen to and learn from a huge range of people with very diverse views. I am proud of the many opportunities that the School offers to our students and the dedicated s ...

Levi celebrated his Bar mitzvah two weeks ago, at Perth Hebrew Congregation (PHC). His Parsha was Bereishit – the first one of the year - and he read a section of his Parasha in shule. Levi explained to me that it’s all about creation and what happens from that point until the story of Noah’s ark. The story is also about the legacy of Adam and Eve. The message that Levi underst ...

Time seems to be racing past – can it really be that we’re nearing the end of Term 4 and I have (nearly) survived my first year as a principal?! Although the Primary School is still buzzing with the promise of the infamous and much-awaited concert which I am very much looking forward to, the last couple of weeks of term in the High School are feeling very strange, with Years 1 ...

Non-teaching friends often naively comment at this time of year that we teachers must be winding down and enjoying the end of year festivities. It would probably be rude to snort with derision at the misguided thought of a relaxing end to Term 4, as it is one of the busiest times for us, preparing for concerts and finalising assessments and writing reports and generally trying ...

The past week has been a busy and memorable one, I was proud to be an ambassador for Carmel School at many important community events. Sunday’s commemoration of Kristallnacht at the PHC was a moving service. Judith Lawrence from the Holocaust Institute delivered a beautifully crafted and moving speech that taught me much I had not known about events that happened on that barba ...

Alec recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah at the Perth Hebrew Congregation (PHC). He is proud that he read from the Torah in Hebrew and lead part of the service. He said he did very well – it was a nerve wracking experience with so many people present and he felt very relieved when it was over. There were people from Carmel School there, as well as family, friends and others. T ...

Although the weather hasn’t been particularly kind to us recently (I had thought that spring had sprung, but then needed to dig out my thermals again) there have been lots of positive happenings in and around Carmel School. The Arts came to the fore as we were wowed by VAPA night, in which we admired various artworks and our students made music, sang and showed films which the ...

Carmel School has won the ‘School of the Year Award’ for the second time, by having the most successful entries across multiple categories in the Science Talent Search (STS) competition. The most notable student award was the 'Rowe Scientific Emerging Talent Award' won by Vanessa L and Chaya A for their innovative mask design using silk and activated charcoal to reduce frictio ...

I was so impressed by the respectful, dignified and fun way with which the Year 12 students finished their time at Carmel School last week. Breakfast on the beach, a game of laser tag and a stunning valedictory dinner with a Hollywood theme all provided a fitting end to what was, for many of our young women and men, fourteen years of education at Carmel. The valedictory assembl ...
