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.
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.
Please click here for information on the devices recommended for students in 2021.
Book Lists are made available to families around the middle of November. These lists will be sent to families as soon as they are available.
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 getonboard.transperth.wa.gov.au
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.
Tip 2: Plan your trip to school
Services often change at the start of the school year. Transperth recommends planning your journey within two weeks of the start of school to ensure you receive the most up-to-date information.
You can use the Transperth app or JourneyPlanner, just don’t forget to change the date to the first day of school.
The College provides it’s own private bus service to the outlying eastern and southern areas. Information on the Emmanuel Bus will be available on the College Website just prior to the start of Term 1 and passes may be purchased from Front Reception.
Information regarding the Emmanuel Private Bus Service and timetable from 2020 is available here.
Please note: The College holds a waitlist for families who wish to enrol at Emmanuel, therefore if you no longer wish to send your child to Emmanuel Catholic College, we ask that you please notify us at your earliest convenience by contacting Lauren Holland, Registrar on 9414 4000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
