FAQs

Will my child need to bring their own learning device for school?

Yes.

Students are required to bring a learning device to Emmaus as part of their education. Students use laptops to access their online textbooks and our teachers are using 21st century teaching and learning tools to enhance teaching and learning. Many of our teachers are also creating their own websites to deliver tailored content to their students.

We provide detailed information on device requirements and links to discounted purchasing options.

What are the school fees?

There are three levels of annual fees, billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3:

  • Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta
  • Diocesan Building Levy set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta
  • School-based fees.

Annual tuition fees in Catholic systemic schools vary from Kindergarten to Year 12 but there are very significant discounts for your second and third child. In fact, there are no fees for your fourth and subsequent children.

In addition to the tuition fees, there is a Diocesan School Building Levy which is charged per family per year. There are also school-based fees which are set by each school.

Do Catholic schools enrol children with additional needs?

We welcome students with diverse needs and aim to provide appropriate educational opportunities and support for students with additional needs. Once the school has evaluated whether a prospective student meets the general enrolment criteria, the additional needs of the student and the school’s capacity to meet them must also be evaluated.

Additional needs are varied and sometimes complex to identify and evaluate. Close partnership with parents is important to support the prospective student in finding what may be their best interests. In some instances school placement at this school may not be available or be in the best interests of the student. The Principal and Catholic Education's Director System Performance may seek a way forward by working with the family, if the family would like assistance.

Parents of children with additional needs are advised to approach the school more than a year in advance.

How can parents get involved at the school?

Parents are key to the life of our school. We welcome parent and carer involvement and invite parents and carers to take part in a variety of college events including Masses, Feast Days, sporting carnivals and social justice initiatives.

We also encourage parents and carers to have a voice in the school by being part of the Parent Advisory Board (PAB). A PAB from each year group meets once a term with the college principal to discuss important issues, concerns and ideas. For more on the PAB call us on 02 9670 8300.

How are Catholic schools different to other schools?

Catholic schools are extremely popular. In fact, they enrol about 20 per cent of Australian school students.

Many parents say they have made their educational choice for reasons such as:

  • Catholic schools are faith-based places that are grounded in Christian values
    The Catholic faith is not just taught in Religious Education classes but is experienced within the total culture of the school. Christian values are up front and explicit. Catholic schools are intrinsically connected to the parish in which they reside and are an integral part of the mission and life of the Church.

  • Catholic schools strive to achieve very high standards of education
    Expectations of achievement and conduct are high. While there is a focus on the individual child, a broad curriculum caters for a wide range of interests and abilities.

  • They are safe yet challenging places
    Relationships are warm and friendly. Parents, students, teachers and pastors see themselves as working in partnership. The children belong to a community that really cares about each one of them.
