Emmanuel becomes the first school awarded iDEA Accreditation

Emmanuel was recently honoured to be the first school in the world outside the UK, to be awarded iDEA (Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award) Pioneer Accreditation.

The Duke of York presented twenty Emmanuel students with their iDEA awards during his recent visit to Australia. This new Duke of York Award is the IT equivalent of the well-known Duke of Edinburgh Award and offers a new way for students to develop digital and enterprise skills and to showcase these industry recognised awards to future employers.

Congratulations to our twenty IT students and Mr Jacob George who received their Bronze medals from the Duke of York at a ceremony at Bond University last week. Thank you to our Emmanuel College Board Chair, Mr Gerry Conway, for joining the families and friends in support of the medal recipients. We are so proud of this first ever group of non-UK students to achieve the Duke of York Award!
