Emmaus is a great place for students to grow in faith and learning.

Led by caring staff committed to sharing the Catholic faith with students in partnership with families, our welcoming community supports students and staff to thrive. We value each student as an individual and share the values of the Gospel to help them discover the hope that is within and to experience a meaningful and flourishing life.

Students in our school come from a variety of religious backgrounds and beliefs - a student will not feel out of place if they do not share the Catholic faith.

Sharing our Catholic tradition

We ensure that students come to know Jesus Christ through the promotion of Catholic tradition and teaching. Faith experiences are woven throughout the life of the school and school values, and are realised within the Religious Education program, liturgy, prayer, reflection, religious symbolism, Feast Days and social justice activities to reach out to those most in need. Our school community prays the Angelus (traditional midday prayer) together each day. In partnership with our local parishes, there are also many chances to attend Mass. Residential retreats for senior students and reflection days for junior students also contribute to the spiritual development of our students.

Emmaus supports the parishes of Holy Spirit, St Clair and Our Lady of the Rosary, St Marys, and the college has built strong relationships with both parishes. Parish priests visit the school regularly for liturgy and to participate in class activities, and are active on the College Council.

Celebrating our faith

We place great importance on the contribution of visual and performing arts to the liturgical life of our school. Live music, singing, drama, symbols, visual art works and liturgical movement are incorporated into celebrations, providing meaningful and relevant faith experiences for young people.

Social justice initiatives

Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. This positive participation and actions can be seen in how we interact and learn with one another, work collaboratively and take ownership of our behaviour as well as active involvement in faith-based experiences.

Our reconciliation strategy

Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are at the beginning of an important journey, endeavouring to make significant contributions to reconciliation within the community, locally and nationally.

Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) recently launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). We will be guided by the CEDP RAP as we work to embed practices that further support members of our learning community who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, engage meaningfully and respectfully with members of the local Aboriginal community, and make contributions to the national journey towards reconciliation.
