Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the Emanuel School website, which will provide you with an insight into what our inclusive and engaging learning community stands for and a snapshot of the wonderful range of opportunities available to our students.
At Emanuel, our students grow and learn within a happy and nurturing environment that encourages healthy and wise lifestyle choices. Our professional and caring staff team is committed to inspiring and supporting our students to pursue excellence, both within and beyond the classroom, and to explore how they can best serve within our local and global community. Our parents are encouraged to establish strong connections within the Emanuel community and to maintain an involvement in the life of the School.
The Emanuel School motto ‘Mind, Spirit, Being’ encapsulates what we seek to develop in our students; an open mind, an awakened spirit and an engagement of the whole being within a culture of excellence. This involves a learning journey that equips our students with the values, skills and resources to become responsible and ethical global citizens. Our academic program extends beyond the mere mastery of facts, to being able to apply knowledge flexibly, in unfamiliar contexts. We seek to engage our students in challenging and real-life learning experiences that help build and demonstrate deep learning, as well as providing opportunities to create and innovate. Throughout this journey, students are encouraged to delve into their own areas of interest, become independent, resilient learners, think critically and celebrate their achievements.
As a pluralistic Jewish School, we affirm that there is more than one authentic way to be Jewish, and embed this in all that we do. Our students are encouraged to embrace the whole Jewish community, regardless of affiliation or practice, and we seek to engage in authentic and positive encounters with Judaism, the Jewish people and Israel.
Our graduates are capable, proactive, upstanding and articulate young adults who move into our rapidly changing world with energy, empathy and enthusiasm. They are committed to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and contributing to the Jewish, Australian and global communities.
It is our privilege to guide Emanuel students towards these outcomes. We welcome you to share in our endeavours.
