Congratulations to Patrick (Year 11) awarded a silver medal in Division 1 Men's Individual Giant Slalom, and to Lucilla (Year 11) and Marina (Year 9) who placed silver and gold for the Divisions 1 and 2 Women's Giant Slalom events respectively.

Aboriginal students centre stage at Adelaide Oval

What a special experience for our Aboriginal students who took part in the amazing cultural performance at Adelaide Oval Friday night as part of Port Adelaide Football Club Indigenous Round celebrations; the conclusion of the week's Aboriginal Power Cup program. Power Cup focuses on providing young people with the opportunity to engage in Aboriginal culture, healthy lifestyle choices, education, life skills, leadership and teamwork. The theme of this year’s Cup was “Creating your story” and students were invited to explore the importance of culture and identity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, while learning more about their culture, the uniqueness of each language group and the role of education.

Exploring their future: Pathways Expo

The Margaret Ames Centre was bursting with information for our senior students who attended our Pathways Expo last night. The students had the opportunity to speak and network with experts from the community who shared their knowledge and expertise to assist them in making future pathway plans. They were able to gain first hand information to aid them in making informed decisions about their future study and career pathways. Many occupations were represented, along with training providers and universities, including many Old Scholars, parents and community members volunteered their time to offer advice to our students. The Pathways Expo is just one of the ways we support our students explore their future career paths.Thanks to all involved for making this another successful Expo.

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. Vocal Jazz Blue not only performed to thunderous applause at the Gala Opening, but also placed equal third in the country in the highest division. 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. It was a particularly special morning for our Year 9 students who attended the service at the RSL War Veterans Home where their sculpture that has been 12 months in the making ‘Coming Home’ was unveiled. 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.
