The Emmanuel College Student Leadership Philosophy
An Emmanuel College Student Leader is someone who, through the force of their own character and values, influences other people and groups around him or her, towards change for good.
Senior students voluntarily engage in our leadership program and are appointed to the position of Student Leader. Emmanuel College is committed to fostering and developing strong leaders with carefully thought-out Christian values for the future of our nation and in order to facilitate this commitment, the College has structured a P-12 Student Leadership Development Program for students from Early Years right through to Year 12.
Student opportunities and annual activities in this program include:
- Junior School Year 6 student leaders
- Prep to Year 6 Buddy program
- Year 5 Leadership program
- Year 6 Captains
- Year 6 Leadership Day
- Junior School Performing Arts Sectional leaders

- Year 10 Journey program
- Year 7 and 11 Peer Support program

In 2009, Emmanuel College launched The Journey program. The Journey is designed to aid our students in establishing and developing essential values and virtues, and to develop the strong character traits essential for a successful life.
