About our school

What are the three most important attributes of Emmaus College? Visionary, nurturing and engaging. 

The school’s Vision Statement, “Excellence in learning within a contemporary Christian community”, helps create a strong ethic of care and respect, traits that are highly visible throughout the school. We have teachers who are looking forward, preparing children for a more flexible, globalised world. We aim to develop students who are thoughtful and optimistic, having confidence in who they are and where they would like to be in the future.

Another vital attribute of Emmaus is nurturing. With thoughtful guidance, students participate in pastoral care programs that teach the importance of reflection, mutual respect and self-discipline. Students know that they are cared for, and in turn, understand how to care for others.

Teachers place special emphasis on nurturing the social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of development. The third attribute of Emmaus is engagement.

The professional partnership between teachers, families and students motivates learners to do the best they can – both in their academic achievement and co-curricular activities. Connections within and beyond the school provide the basis for delivering high quality education that is responsive to the needs of our young people in today’s world.

Principal's Message

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.

Yours sincerely

JANE EGAN
