Emanuel advocates for, and promotes human, social, political and economic equality - an inclusive Jewish ethos with an emphasis on Tikkun Olam. Our students have many opportunities to be involved in hands-on social justice and charitable projects, both in the Jewish and wider community.

Emanuel is unique in being small enough to provide student-centred, high quality education in a Jewish community environment. At the same time, it is big enough to offer a diverse range of subjects, extra-curricular activities and high-quality facilities.

The School’s new Innovation Centre features three floors of flexible space, where students are encouraged to discover, innovate, explore and think beyond the boundaries. It boasts an Imaginarium and Design Lab, interactive spaces dedicated to experimenting with ‘impossible’ ideas and discovering new ways of thinking, based on a Design Thinking model.

We cultivate a culture of academic excellence, student wellbeing, high expectations and continuous improvement. Our teachers use innovative learning approaches and technologies to foster curious, adaptive and ethical students, who are well-prepared for the workforce of the future.

Our objective is to challenge our students to be critical and curious thinkers, who love learning, have a strong sense of community, a love for Israel and are proud of their Jewish heritage. Our approach to Jewish Life strives to be rigorous and relevant. From Jewish history and ethics, to Hebrew language and contemporary Israel, we explore Jewish studies within our pluralist and egalitarian framework.

We create a safe, supportive, caring environment where students flourish. Our students are encouraged to be well-rounded and grounded individuals, who are guided to develop their diverse interests and passions so as to make a positive difference to the world.

At Emanuel we believe that education encompasses the broad domains of academic, social, emotional sporting, musical and extra-curricular learning, while building a strong sense of responsibility, compassion and justice.

We strive to connect with our community and create a welcoming and inclusive environment that is known for its genuine acceptance and understanding of diversity.

Emanuel students reach out to our local and world communities, engaging in acts of loving kindness (gemilut hasadim) and giving (tzedakah) through a variety of programs and projects. In 2018, student-led projects included supporting projects with Jewish House, the Matthew Talbot Hostel, NSW Friendship Circle, Camp Sababa, White Ribbon Day, Asylum Seekers Centre, Villawood Immigration Detention Centre, Oz Harvest and the JCA.

We cultivate a culture of academic excellence, student wellbeing, high expectations and continuous improvement. Our teachers use innovative learning approaches and technologies to foster curious, adaptive and ethical students, who are well-prepared for the workforce of the future.

Our extra-curricular program reflects a diverse and broad range of students’ interests and is constantly evolving.
