A very special Rosh Hashanah message to our Carmel School Association community from Rabbi Mervis, Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.
Carmel School is an independent Jewish Day School which follows Modern Orthodox principles and has a strong commitment to Zionism. Carmel places emphasis on adherence to traditional Judaism, as set out in the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law).
Carmel is an independent organization, unaffiliated with any synagogue. Each student is respected for his or her individuality and Carmel strives to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation, embracing all students. In General Studies, Carmel is fully committed to achieving highest international educational standards measured against other leading international schools in Hong Kong and top private schools abroad, taught by experienced, qualified teachers in a manner which enables each student to realize his or her own potential.
Carmel is committed to teaching students about, and fostering a love for, Jewish values and traditions, and the Land and State of Israel, its language and culture. In Jewish Studies, Carmel teaches Judaism as a way of life, encourages each child to take pride in his or her Jewish identity and seeks to develop individuals who are more knowledgeable and committed to the Jewish tradition.
The School’s philosophy is only to employ experienced, qualified teachers who have demonstrated excellence in their previous schools, and to ensure that they are supervised by experienced administrators who assure that teachers provide a creative, caring and challenging environment.
