Mount Carmel College
BOARDING AND DAY SCHOOL FOR CATHOLIC BOYS
Conducted by the Christian Brothers
The College was established as a day school in 1902 at the request of
the late Fr. Comerford and for many years it was the only Primary and
Secondary School in the town. When the population began to decline
rapidly the late Dean E. O'Keeffe conceived the idea of a boarding
for North Queensland with the result that M t. Carmel was opened in
as the pioneer boardi1ng school for boys in the Towelrs.
For nearly fifty years the Christian Brothers have laboured in Charters
Towers for the cause of Catholic education and thousands of successful
ex-students look back with gratitude to Mt. Carmel where their early
of education were spent.
