Vision and Mission

Vision Statement
Emmanuel College, sharing the mission of the Church and the principles of a Marianist education, with its devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, delivers a Catholic secondary education directed particularly to the young women and men from the parishes of the region, supporting all dimensions of their growth and learning: faith, intellectual, emotional, social, psychological and physical.
Mission Statement
Our values are underpinned by our commitment to bear witness to the following shared values as modelled by Jesus Christ and exemplified in the life of Blessed William Chaminade:
  • Justice
  • Commitment and  endeavour
  • Respect
  • Honouring diversity
  • Responsibility
  • Honesty
  • Compassion
The essence of the College is learning and teaching, with faith education as a primary focus.
The learning and teaching program, operating within the context of a learning community, provides a curriculum that is challenging, ever-changing and suited to the needs of each learner using appropriate technology and engaging methodologies informed by good pedagogy.
The curriculum seeks to develop a love of learning and enhance the capacity for lifelong learning, with an appropriate connection to work and industry.
The College’s resources and facilities are upgraded and maintained so as to enhance learning and teaching.
The pastoral care structure values and nurtures the uniqueness of each individual within our community.
The discipline structures are designed to support student growth in self-discipline and personal development as mature citizens of their family and the broader community.
Emmanuel College affirms its adherence to the principles and practices of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:
  • Elected government
  • The rule of law
  • Equal rights of all before the law
  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom of speech and association
  • The values of openness and tolerance
