At Emmaus College, our students experience an innovative and dynamic learning environment that provides them with the academic and personal skills to flourish in the 21st century. Academic aspiration matters, and it is important that every student is inspired to be the best they can be. Our vision for learning 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.
Emmaus College is proud to be a co-educational Catholic school, and we strongly believe that co-education has clear benefits for the vast majority of students. For the contemporary society in which we live, it makes perfect sense for young people to be together in a co-educational environment during their formative teenage to young adult years. We believe that this then best prepares students for their post-school life.
Emmaus College aims to ensure that students are able to acquire the skills necessary for 21st Century learning, especially the four C’s: Critical Thinking Skills, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity. These skills will enable students to be flexible in their problem-solving methodology, have enhanced thinking abilities and a collaborative attitude to communication skills. Students need to develop these skills alongside the foundations of literacy and numeracy.
Well-being is the total climate of pastoral care arising out of the action taken by the College to promote and enhance student well-being of a personal, social, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual nature. Key elements of student well-being are positive self-regard, respect for others, positive relationships, responsible behaviours, personal resilience and engagement with learning.
Our mission as a Christ-centred community provides a caring and supportive environment that enables students to develop their full potential in all areas of life.
