Gesher, the Hebrew word for ‘bridge’, is the fun- and friend-raising arm of our school community.
Gesher arranges a number of events throughout the year, including Jazz on the Hill and Breakfasts with Emanuel in the CBD and at Bondi.
We have a vibrant and growing grandparents’ community, including many who live overseas and regularly receive news from Gesher. Each year we celebrate our Primary Grandparents’ and Friends’ Day. More than 1000 Alumni have completed their schooling at Emanuel School, with the ‘family’ growing each year. We facilitate reunions, as well as organising an annual sports challenge and alumni and student choir event. Each year, we host E-Zone, a careers information session for Years 11 and 12, involving presenters from our alumni and broader Emanuel community.
You can read about Gesher news in the School’s weekly newsletter, Ma Nishma, and our bi-annual newsletters are full of news, simchot and photos.
