Carncot School with Principal Chris Michalski

Learning is a life-long skill. Give your child the start they deserve.

Students graduate from Carncot as confident and articulate high-achievers. They have learnt to be independent, curious and to value learning as a lifelong skill. Respect, responsibility, honesty, caring and integrity are the cornerstones upon which we deliver a broad and progressive curriculum, taught both in and outside the classroom. Our students leave empowered to make a positive difference.
