Inclusive Learning


What is Inclusive Learning?

Carmel College is an inclusive community which actively practices inclusive principles.  We have professional, experienced teachers who work collaboratively to maintain an environment conducive for a diverse range of learners to successfully access the curriculum and fully engage in the life of the College.

The Learning Enhancement Team supports teachers to deliver differentiated learning to meet the needs of all learners. At the core of this service is the belief that every student is unique, every student matters, every student has a right to access the same education and that every child can learn and succeed.

As a Catholic school, Carmel caters for students who have a diverse range of characteristics and experiences. These characteristics and experiences may be attributable to physical, religious, cultural, personal health or wellbeing, intellectual, psychological, socio-economic or life experiences including:

  • Students with disability
  • Students with gifts and talents
  • Students who are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
  • Students with English as an additional language or dialect
  • Students in out-of-home-care
  • Students of refugee background

At Carmel College every student is supported and encouraged to Let Their Light Shine.
