How to Enrol

Find out how to enrol into one of the best primary schools in Sydney. OLMC Primary gives your child the best opportunity to develop academically and spiritually.

It involves a commitment to work with the school and support the philosophy, values and aims of Catholic education. Specifically, joining this community means parents/carers and students are committed to:

  • the development of quality relationships with all members of the school community
  • the Catholic identity and evangelising mission of the school within the Church
  • supporting the school in following school policies ad procedures
  • involvement by parents and caregivers, where possible, in the life of the school and in fundraising.

Our Lady of Mt Carmel is accepting enrolments now, for children eligible to commence Kindergarten next year.

Enrolment enquiries are also welcome for primary school aged children seeking enrolment during the school year.

Please don't hesitate to contact the school office for any enquiries regarding enrolment.


Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We encourage parents to organise a time to tour our school, meet our staff and see our learning in action. There are also a number of organised events, such as Open Days held in march/ April, which will also help future parents to get a 'feel' for our school.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
