Teaching Excellence

Our students are supported by skilled, creative and compassionate teachers who are dedicated to improving the learning outcomes of every student.

Teaching staff at Emmaus have developed a culture of collaboration as we work towards empowering students through project based learning, inquiry-based and student-centred learning. To ensure our teachers are across all the latest advances in educational research we provide a variety of professional learning opportunities. Our teachers are modelling effective learning through being willing and ongoing learners themselves.

The teaching and assessment practices employed by our teachers are based on the latest academic research and principles. Our students are challenged to extend themselves in all their subjects while being given the support and guidance they need to feel confident doing so.

A central focus of our teachers is the need to meet the needs of the students in the class no matter where they are on their learning journey. As such, the school has invested considerable resources into the development of the teachers’ capacity to differentiate their lessons, to ensure every child is afforded an opportunity to engage with the learning in the class.

Wellbeing and learning go hand in hand, they speak to each other and effective pastoral care and knowing our students ensures that we can make the right choices and adjustments to allow them to thrive in their learning environment -this is why I love what I do knowing that along with all our staff at Emmaus using a wrap around approach we can and do make a difference
Stephen Robert (Assistant Principal)
I feel that as a school we are making significant inroads in building a strong learning culture at Emmaus, where it is all about learning, learning and more learning. We do this by being data informed, using effective pedagogical approaches, applying a blended learning model, using inquiry as a key principle, having our students search and be curious and using a team approach between all the learning stakeholders-students, teachers and families. We are all learners at Emmaus and we have a strong collaborative vision allowing us to celebrate and build on some of our best HSC and NAPLAN results. Our students are eager to want more and they have become much more aspirational because they know they are capable and have all the tools necessary to achieve at Emmaus.
Mark O’Connor (Director of Academic Growth & Learning)
