Mount Carmel School, Gaggal

Carmel means an orchard or garden-land. As a proper name, "Mount Carmel" designates a well known mountain ridge overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Israel. Due to its panoramic vista and luxuriant vegetation the prophets of the Bible saw an image of God's beauty in it and took it as a sign of God's Love and Blessings for His people. It is here on this Mount that the great Prophet Elijah established the worship of one, true God and meted out justice to the oppressed people. It is also on this Mount that the Carmelite Order, a Religious Congregation in the Catholic Church, had its origin. the members of this order, imbibing the spirit of the great prophets, dedicate themselves to the service of humanity. Mount Carmel School is as expression of these values.
