The building is named in honour of both the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and the Marist Brothers and their contribution to education on the site.
Marist Brothers Commercial High School, Alberton, known more commonly as Marist Brothers Alberton, educated students at the 33 Newcastle St site from 1927 to 1966 until it moved to Thebarton. In 1967 Mount Carmel Girls High School moved from being co-located with Mount Carmel Primary School (as it was known then) to 33 Newcastle St. In 1983 it became co-educational and was re-named Mount Carmel College.
Fr Philip Marshall spoke about the importance of Mount Carmel College to the Catholic community and the western suburbs.
The new building includes a senior secondary centre, additional Visual Arts room, senior STEM centre, counselling rooms, APRIM office, new canteen and toilets.
