Future proofing careers: Mark McCrindle visits

Can you believe that today's students could have 5 different careers spanning 17 different jobs & move house 15 times over their adult lives? Just some of the data renowned social researcher Mark McCrindle shared at Immanuel yesterday. Mark presented separate thought-provoking sessions for students & staff as well as a special session for parents hosted by our Parents & Friends Association. These sessions provided a snapshot of the global trends impacting the future careers options for our students & the timeless skills required to be 'future-proof'.

Sunsets greet sea kayakers

The Year 12 Outdoor Education classes embarked on their sea kayaking expedition from Sellicks Beach to Seacliff Sailing club last week. The class was extremely blessed with idyllic conditions as they experienced very light tail winds, were paddling with the tide and on flat almost glasslike water. Due to the amazing conditions they were able to paddle at an incredible 5km/hr, which allowed more time to surf kayak. Extra rescue challenges were also thrown in to add excitement to the day. The group worked together exceptionally well and were incredible ambassadors for the school.

Generations in Jazz 2018

What a weekend at Generations In Jazz! We are so proud of all of our students who were simply amazing.

Jazzie Vanua was awarded the Ron Denning Award for the most promising vocalist in Division 1. Vocal Jazz Gold and Big Bands 1 & 2 were all extremely competitive in their Divisions. Congratulations to each and every member of the 2018 GIJ tour as they not only represented our school well but we can all be really proud of the fine young musicians they are.

ANZAC Day 2018 - Lest We Forget

We are immensely proud to have had over 50 students attend & lay wreaths at ANZAC Day services around South Australia in both metropolitan Adelaide and regional areas to honour and pay respect to our war veterans and those currently serving our country.

Lest We Forget.

Farewell to our Bethany pilgrims

Farewell to our Bethany pilgrims as they head to Malaysia today to work in Bethany Home. Bethany Home is a school for people with disabilities that Immanuel has had a relationship with for 13 years. They will spend 2 weeks living in the school and providing help and support for both the staff and the students. They have raised over $15,000 for Bethany this year to help them continue to do the amazing work that they do - thank you to our community for their support. We wish them all the best & pray that they will be a blessing to the Bethany community.
