Dear Parents and Caregivers
Welcome to Emmaus College. It is our aim to provide a learning environment that nurtures young people's gifts and abilities and enables them to reach their potential. Our students experience an innovative and dynamic learning environment that provides them with the academic and personal skills to flourish in the 21st century. Staff members have created an environment which maximises learning outcomes and caters for diversity. Every person matters, and it is important that every student is heard and is inspired to be the best they can be.
Our vision for learning: “Excellence in learning within a contemporary Christian community'.
This encompasses all aspects of life, the intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, emotional, ethical, and cultural dimensions where education is consciously structured to develop the whole person in a caring, family-oriented community. As partners in education, we will continue to journey with our families as we walk together, so that we may be able to achieve our vision.
At Emmaus College, we believe that enjoyment of learning and our students' wellbeing must lie at the heart of our endeavours, prioritising an extensive pastoral care program supporting the young people in our care. Our students develop a spirit of independence and self confidence that will allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
Our students will encounter many challenges, choices, and opportunities, so that they can grow their abilities and passions in life. Emmaus College enjoys an excellent reputation for its diverse and engaging co-curricular program that forms a significant element of the rich fabric within our college community.
At Emmaus College, your child will enjoy a vibrant contemporary culture and join a family where our inclusive community creates a strong sense of belonging. Our motto “Walking with Christ" is central to the lived experience of our students. This ambition is hope-filled and life-giving. With our dedicated staff, parents, and community's support, our students grow into young adults of integrity. These are qualities that will see them go out into the world and make a significant contribution towards society.
I trust that our partnership will be of benefit to your child, and we look forward to meeting and working with you to develop a truly Christian environment here at Emmaus College.
