Why Choose ICS

Why Choose Immanuel?

There are many things that make Immanuel Christian School a great choice for you to send your child too. Our class sizes are small, our connections with the community, our academic success, our proud traditions in sport, the excellence of our award winning music program, our adventurous robotics program and, of course, the calibre of our staff.

Above all, however, we are distinguished by our students; they are our finest ambassadors. They are diverse – we welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds – and they are engaging. When you meet them, you will perceive their open sincerity. They have high academic aspirations and they take their studies seriously. They care for each other in daily life and through the School’s mentoring and house systems; and they enjoy long after their time at School the camaraderie that comes of playing sport, performing, camping and giving in community service together.

We aim to educate and build character in students to recognize and use their abilities to serve others.
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do.”
Ephesians 6:7 & 8
