Emmanuel Christian Community School aims to provide an education that stresses co-operation rather than competition, fostering the development of the gifts, skills and abilities of the students for the service of Jesus Christ in the Church and the wider community.
Teaching God’s Word to instill lifetime values in the lives of the children is an all important part of Emmanuel’s desire to nurture spiritual growth.
The need to develop physically, as well as mentally and spiritually, is of equal importance at Emmanuel. Athletics, team sports and swimming are just part of the overall physical education program. Emphasis is also given to the development of gross and fine motor skills.
Computer facilities, laptops and desktop computers are used in the classrooms to integrate technology with learning and all classrooms have access to the Internet.
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Primary is a co-educational and multicultural school catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school continues the work of the Sisters of Mercy by focussing on our school motto of Integrity and Gentleness and Religious Education forms the basis of our daily life.
The school provides education in the Nine Curriculum Framework Areas. We have specialist teachers in Music, Art, Physical Education, and Library. We have First and Third Wave RAISe coordinators, a Reading Recovery teacher (Second Wave) and an EMU (Mathematics) coordinator who assist students who may be struggling. Our Lady of Mercy also offers specialised programs in Mathletics (Years 4-7) and Lexile Reading to support classroom literacy and numeracy.
A range of extra-curricula activities in the Arts, which include Wakakirri, school band, guitar lessons, and Physical Education including basketball and soccer training which help to develop the physical and educational needs of the students.
We pride ourselves in having a staff dedicated to catering for the development of the whole child - intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Our Vision is to build a collaborative learning community in which people reflect a love of God and a love of one another.
