Emmanuel College is committed to a total Christian education package and our school believes sport is a vital part of a balanced and multi-faceted educational program. Sport provides students with a range of experiences and opportunities that are unique in their educational setting and as such, we expect every student to participate in these activities.

Our Junior School students (Years 4-6) are engaged in an inter-school sports program and a wealth of extra-curricular sports offerings. Some of the highlights of our Emmanuel College Sports program include: 

  • Interhouse athletics, swimming and cross-country carnivals
  • Over 100 teams from Yr 4-12 compete on a weekly basis in our compulsory APS interschool fixtures
  • Access to state of the art sporting facilities

We operate an award winning reward program, Emmanuel Active, that allows students of all ages to earn rewards for participating in sporting activities.

Sport at Emmanuel College offers students constructive and positive pathways, where the willingness to be actively and practically involved is just as important as the results. Our strong belief in this is embodied in our award winning Emmanuel Active initiative.  

We also strive for excellence and would like to see every student maximise their physical potential and experience, across a range of different sports.
