Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School is one of Sydney’s most historically significant Catholic schools, opening in 1858. A number of Religious Orders have been involved in the school. The Sisters of Mercy (North Sydney) were involved in the school from 1883 to 1991, and the Patrician Brothers staffed sections of the school from 1886 to 1963.
