Head Girl

Hi my name is Ailsa and I was lucky enough to be Head of Carmel. I enjoy playing football and basketball. Another of my favourite things to do is play my instruments. I really hope that I can improve the school while I am Head of Carmel and make this school a happier place to learn.


Head Boy

I am Oliver and I was over the moon to be chosen as Head boy. I hope my ideas can help make the school a better place. I'm motivated when I see people smile, so that is my mission to make more smiles.


Head Boy

Hello, I'm Charlie and I love maths, T.V, my bed, puzzles, art and my family.
I'm one of the Heads for Carmel and I hope everyone in Carmel will do there best and stay positive and resilient.
We can do this if we have courage!

The Story of Carmel

Mount Carmel can be found in 1 Kings. Elijah was a profit who bravely summons 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah to Mount Carmel. Here he courageously challenges the prophets to prove that their God’s are real. This is why we say that House Carmel is Courageous and Bold.

Carmel in the Bible:

1 Kings 17:19-21

Elijah approached the people and said, “How long will you not decide between two choices? If the Lord is the true God, follow him, but if Baal is the true God, follow him!” But the people said nothing. Elijah said, “I am the only prophet of the LORD here, but there are 450 prophets of Baal. Bring two bulls. Let the prophets of Baal choose one bull and kill it and cut it into pieces. Then let them put the meat on the wood, but they are not to set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull, putting the meat on the wood but not setting fire to it. You prophets of Baal, pray to your God, and I will pray to the LORD. The God who answers by setting fire to the wood is the true God.

The prophets of Baal prayed to their God but nothing happened but when Elijah prayed this to God.

“Prove that you are the God of Israel and that I am your servant. Show these people that you commanded me to do all these things. Lord, answer my prayer so these people will know that you, LORD, are God and that you will change their minds.”

Then fire from the LORD came down and burned the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the ground around the altar. It also dried up water in the ditch. When all the people saw this, they fell down to the ground, crying, “LORD is God! The LORD is God!”


Carmel’s Book Sale

By | FS2, House Carmel, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Thank you for for supporting House Carmel’s book sale with your kind book donations.


The book sale went really well but has been cut short due to school closing. So when we return to school we will continue to sell books at break times.

We have a great selection of good quality books and most books cost 50p. All money raised will go towards buying new seating for the library area.


Thank you

Book Week 26th February – 2nd March
“Book in a box” competition

Our Book Week Competition this year is to create a “book in a box” with super prizes for every year group!

You will need a box, which can be a cereal box, shoe box or equivalent. Choose your favourite book and decorate your box (inside and out) to represent the different parts of the book.

 You could draw or cut out pictures of the characters or significant objects from the book.
 You could recreate a scene from the book inside.
 Include interesting quotes from the text.
 Don’t forget to include the title and author of the book too.
 Make it as colourful and exciting as you can.

For inspiration look at examples of books in boxes on Google “book in box project ideas”. Also Google “book in a box Southam Primary school” and they have some great ideas on their website too.
Label your box clearly with your name and year group and bring your box by Monday 26th of February for judging. Prizes will be awarded at our celebration of the week assembly on Friday 2nd March.
