Please take the time to read the information below and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the College.

As Principal, it is my vision to ensure the provision of a holistic, inspiring and engaging education. The College provides a wide range of opportunities designed to meet the individual needs of each student, enhanced through the acquisition of skills, knowledge and experiences that allow students to maximise their potential and make a worthy contribution as global citizens to the world we live in today.

Blessed with outstanding facilities, we are a constantly evolving College operating within a highly contemporary educational landscape. I trust you will enjoy your time at Emmanuel.

Please note, there is a new Sports Uniform tracksuit being introduced to the College between 2019 and 2022. All incoming Year 7 students must wear the new version of the tracksuit. Please bear this in mind if choosing to buy your uniform second hand.

Please note, if you require new school shoes for your child, or shoes for you, The Athlete’s Foot in Cockburn donates $5.00 to the College P&F Association for every pair of shoes purchased. This is not limited to just school shoes, but available to all families and friends. Mention Emmanuel Catholic College when you purchase.

Please ensure all items of your child’s uniform are clearly labelled with their full name so lost items can be easily returned.


At Emmanuel, students are to bring their own device for use at school. The College has a relationship with Winthrop Australia, however, families can purchase their child’s device at a location of their choice.

To help make the transition for students as easy as possible, Transperth have compiled some simple tips for new parents and students.
Tip 1: Get started by visiting
This website has everything parents need to know to help make a child’s move to independent travel as simple and stress-free as possible.
