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 thinking and 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 very best they can – both in their academic achievement and in their co-curricular activities. 

Principal's Message

“Emmaus College’s purpose and mission flows from our Christian heritage and partnership between the Anglican, Uniting, Catholic and Lutheran churches.  Our motto is “Walking With Christ” and at Emmaus that means a lot.  It is known to the students, parents and the wider community and it is a very powerful ethos that underpins our College.

Emmaus is a vibrant enterprise with a warm, caring and welcoming atmosphere.  I often marvel at the energy and verve of teachers, students and parents, all working together to maximise student learning.

In 2022 we will continue to highlight literacy and numeracy learning for each student, planning for individual progress and achievement.  By focusing on digital communication and critical thinking, students are well positioned to be valuable contributors to society.”
