Inspired Wellbeing at ILC

Happy, confident children make the best learners. If there’s one thing our parent community always says, it’s how happy their children are at Immanuel Lutheran College. Your child will always have caring, nurturing professionals to help them develop confidence, self-awareness and growth.

We believe that inspiring children to develop special interests and nurture their talents in a positive and engaging environment is the pathway to academic achievement along with holistic wellness. Immanuel’s student wellbeing program aims to assist your children to become happy, balanced adults.
