It began with eight Grade One Jewish
While Carmel maintains its Jewish ethos, with Shabbat – candle lighting and blessings – celebrated every Friday and with all Jewish Holy and commemorative days observed, the school became fully integrated with children of all denominations in 1979. This has engendered an environment of respect for diversity of faith, culture and ethnicity, strong ethics for tolerance and diversity being among Carmel’s defining features.
The size of the school provides another distinctive factor and strength. Being a small school all pupils feel part of the same “family”; all pupils participate and find their place in school sporting and cultural events.
Carmel School is a member of the Association of Trust Schools (ATS) which embraces more than 60 schools, catering for over 25 000 primary and secondary pupils around Zimbabwe.
A Board of Governors strategically and financially manages the school.
