Part of Immanuel’s ‘education for life’ philosophy is realised through the College’s acclaimed Mt Binga Outdoor Education Centre which offers a four-week residential program which all students embark on in Year 10. The lessons taught at Binga build resilience, teamwork and relationships. But Mt Binga is only one part of Immanuel’s learning program.
“From Pre-Prep to Year 12, we are a connected and engaged community. Academically, students are engaged through activities that are relevant, authentic and life related. Our Innovation@Immanuel strategy provides students with ready access to flexible learning spaces with iPads, Surface Pros and other devices in a blended learning environment. In the classroom, students attend lessons but also engage virtually with their teachers when gaining feedback and completing online workbooks. Our learning management ecosystem provides teachers with information about each student’s academic, social and emotional progress that allows staff and families to work together to promote positive outcomes for each student,” he said.
So too is the physical space being transformed, with more than $15 million in capital infrastructure upgrades over the past five years including a new Environmental Centre, learn to swim pool and new Years 1-3 classrooms and outdoor covered spaces, that are multi-disciplinary and communal allowing students to work together in new and creative ways.
