Our Christian Vision
Immanuel School Vision – Theological Roots
All God’s Children
“Perseverance produces character, and character, hope” (Romans 5:4)
Our school name1 and the Immanuel dove2 embody the fact that God is with us in everything we strive to do, cultivating a community rooted in the biblical values of perseverance, character and hope, where students are inspired to flourish in their educational journey. At Immanuel, we embrace the diversity of all God’s children3, creating an inclusive and nurturing environment where every member of the school community is respected, valued and celebrated. The Immanuel family encourages, models and practises forgiveness and reconciliation4.
Embracing Jesus’s mission to serve others5, we are dedicated to tackling disadvantage and fostering social justice and sustainability6, equipping students with the knowledge, empathy and skills to make a positive impact and advocate for those facing challenges in our local and global communities.
We believe that academic achievement is grounded in perseverance, and we inspire and support our students to overcome challenges, develop a strong work ethic and reach their God-given potential7.
Through a broad and balanced academic curriculum, as well as an extensive programme of enrichment opportunities, we develop character in our students, encouraging them to embrace challenges, explore their spirituality, exhibit resilience and demonstrate integrity as they grow to become well-rounded individuals.
We nurture a culture of hope, inspiring our students to develop a sense of optimism and independence, enabling them to confidently pursue their aspirations8 and embrace life in all its fullness with abundant9 possibilities.
