From The Principal

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

Through the provision of a holistic education, Emmanuel Catholic College has grown from its small beginnings in the wetlands region of Beeliar to the thriving, well-established school community it is today.

With approximately 1,180 students from Year 7 through to Year 12 the College continues to prosper and accommodate the growing demand for families in our surrounding parish of Mater Christi and the adjoining, rapidly developing suburban areas. 

Throughout his illustrious career Sir Ken Robinson strongly advocated that “education does not need to be reformed – it needs to be transformed. The key is not to standardise education, but to personalise it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”

Emmanuel Catholic College continues to evolve as a contemporary 21st century learning environment through the provision of a multitude of opportunities that inspire, engage and cater for the individual needs of each and every student. The College has established a strong reputation for care and attention to excellence and continually keeps abreast of our constantly evolving world and emerging trends in education.  In doing so, we strive to set a culture of excellence and high standards in providing students with the necessary, skills, knowledge and experiences, enhancing student ability to thrive, prosper and make a valuable contribution as global citizens both now and in the future.  

As a school we acknowledge that no significant learning ever occurs in the absence of a significant relationship between student and educator and ‘knowing our students’ is a non- negotiable imperative embedded into the learning process. Emmanuel has forged a strong reputation for providing support and care for those within our community.  We constantly seek to instil and reinforce a strong sense of community through the College’s Core Values and a clear Christian vision that instils in students the importance of service to others and growing a capacity to make a positive contribution in life.

This website provides a glance into our community and its daily life, with all it offers and the opportunities available. I hope it enriches your understanding of our wonderful school. We are certainly proud of Emmanuel Catholic College and look forward to it continuing to distinguish itself as the school of choice in this locality into the future.

God bless,

Mr Paul Watson
College Principal
