About us

Emmanuel Catholic College is a contemporary, progressive, and innovative 21st Century school situated in the suburb of Success. All staff are expected to complement this and are expected to apply a similar philosophy to their work.

The College opened its doors in 1999 and has now grown to a coeducational enrolment of approximately 1170 secondary students from Years 7-12.

The College name, derived from the Hebrew word Emmanuel, means “God is with us”. The campus is a modern and vibrant learning area, equally enhanced by the natural beauty of both Lake Kogalup and the natural bushland area of the Beeliar Regional Park. 

All staff are expected to support the Principal and through authentic collaboration and promote and uphold the Catholic Values and the shared vision of the College. Staff are further expected to involve themselves as active members of the wider community in enhancing the welfare and development our community and thus the College. Staff at Emmanuel must conduct themselves with the highest level of professionalism and confidentiality at all times, with capacity to work with independent initiative.

Emmanuel Catholic College acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners and Elders, both past and present of the land on which our College is located, the Whadjuk people of the Nyungar Nation.

Code of Conduct


The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to describe minimum standards of conduct in all behaviour and decision making to ensure the safety and well-being of students.


The Code applies to staff, students, volunteers, parents and guardians as applicable. The term ‘parents’ includes guardians.


You acknowledge the inherent vulnerability of the students in your care.

You recognise that the safety and well-being of students depends upon your vigilance and diligence and the vigilance and diligence of all adults.

The Code does not give you detailed professional advice on specific behaviour. Rather, it describes the minimum requirements expected of you.

The Guidelines are illustrative and not an exhaustive list of the behaviours covered by the Code.

If your behaviour varies from the standards described in this Code and Guidelines, you should be prepared to explain and justify your decisions and actions.

While mandatory language such as ‘must’, ‘shall’ and ‘will’ is not used throughout the Code, there is a presumption the conduct described is mandatory and therefore not discretionary.

Breaches of the Code must be notified to the Principal and it is a breach of the Code not to do so.

A breach of the Code may constitute a failure to follow a lawful direction from the Principal and therefore the Principal will have the discretion as to what action to take, which may include counselling, professional development or sanctions under any agreement between you and the Principal. If you are a parent, volunteer or visitor, the Principal may take such action as is appropriate in your circumstances to maintain the safety and well-being of students.

The Principal must notify the appropriate authorities of any breach of the Code that was deliberately undertaken with the aim of befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a student, to lower the student’s inhibitions in preparation for engaging in sexual activity with the student.

The Principal expects you to conduct yourself personally and professionally in a way that maintains public trust and confidence in your school and the Church.

You have a responsibility to students and their family, other members of the school community and the wider community to provide and support safe and competent education and care of students.

You will do your best to support other members of the school community to comply with the Code.

In cases of conflict between parts of the Code, between the Code and other school policies, or in any decision making choices, you give priority to the outcome that will be in the best interests of the safety and well-being of the child.
