In the 1960s, as a result of strong parish leadership, St Paul’s College was established in Altona North, bringing the Marianist charism of the Blessed William Chaminade to Australia. The Marianists brought a message of good news and quiet revolution that all people are members of God’s family and have the right to liberty, equality and a supportive community. This Marianist leadership provided welcoming hospitality, service to all, innovative education and tradition. In response to growth in our region, in 2006, Emmanuel College was established comprising our all-boys campus in Altona North and our co-educational campus in Point Cook. The College is highly regarded for our pastoral care program based on Marianist values and encapsulated in our College motto: Life to the full.
Our College strives to build strong relationships between young people and their teachers; to develop relevant teaching which engages learners; and to establish high expectations regarding student achievement. Supporting the growth and learning of the young people whom we serve is done in partnership with parents – the first educators of their children. We strive, as do parents, to develop well-rounded young people of character and confidence, who believe in themselves and grow in the mature capacity for empathy and consideration of others. This is pursued through a commitment to the characteristics of Marianist education. We believe that every student has the ability to succeed and the key to achievement is focusing on the pursuit of personal best. A variety of teaching approaches, and the breadth of educational and co curricular offerings, provide students with the opportunity to achieve excellence in learning outcomes. Providing an educational experience that is relevant to 21st century learners is important to us, as is the pursuit of high academic standards. We have expansive facilities and an extensive ICT program on each of our campuses that enhance learning and teaching.
Our young people are growing up in a rapidly changing world and the western region of Melbourne, in particular, has changed dramatically in the past decade. Emmanuel College continues to grow in response to the needs of the community we serve. We have a comprehensive capital investment program and offer extensive professional development to our staff. Our teachers examine data and other feedback in teams with the aim of adapting our programs to meet the needs of our students and deliver innovative, personalised programs across our curriculum. In doing so, we aim for students to be independent, self-directed learners and emotionally intelligent people, able to achieve their best in this interconnected and globalised world.
