Information for New Secondary School Students (starting during the year)
Subject textbooks are loaned through the Library and are inclusive of the fees. Textbooks will be collected from the Ken Thamm Centre (Library) on the first day of school.
All new students from P-12 will have their Student Photo ID's taken when they start school.
All new Secondary School students must ensure that they have purchased a lock for their locker.
These are available via the College Shop or can be purchased elsewhere. Combination locks are recommended.
We encourage students to become familiar with the combination and to have a little practice opening them.
Secondary Students (Years 7 to 12) are advised to refer to their printed timetables noting where they have a double HPE or Sports and Activity lesson. On these days they will be required to bring their sports uniform to the College and change prior to their lesson. In the past, Year 7 students were allowed to wear their sports uniform to the College on the day they have a Sport and Activity lesson. If there is any change to this arrangement, it will be communicated via the Year 7 Co-ordinator when your child starts. All Secondary School students wear their formal summer uniform for the first day of school.
Start: 8:25am Finish: 3:10pm
Secondary School parents are encouraged to park near the A J Jericho Stadium. To keep traffic flowing, we request that parents remain in their cars at the drop off and turn around points.
The Immanuel Early Learning Centre Car Park (out the front of the Main Administration Building) is strictly off-limits for College families to park and drop off unless they have a child in the IELC.
Laptops are issued on the first day of school via the Library (Ken Thamm Centre), unless prior arrangements have been made for collection.
Parents must complete and read the guidelines, which can be accessed via this link: 1 to 1 Device Agreement Form.
Please note that devices will only be issued if we have a signed agreement on file.
SEQTA Engage (parent) login details will be emailed once your child commences their studies at Immanuel.
SEQTA Learn (student) login details are provided to the student when they start.
It's important to keep this email safe as it will contain your password and login details to sign into SEQTA. SEQTA is a gateway to your child's academic reports, fee statements, notices and your child's academic timetable.
If your child needs to leave the College early, they must sign out in the Student Services Office and provide written evidence that you have approved an early departure. An email or phone call from you to Student Services is also acceptable, and your child can meet you at a pre-designated collection point.
If your child is absent from school, please call the Absentee Line on 5477 3459.
Under the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (Qld) parents have a legal obligation to ensure that their children attend school and if your child is likely to be absent from school for more than 10 consecutive school days (e.g. holiday, illness), prior approval must be obtained from the Principal. An Application for Exemption form can be obtained either from Student Services or the Enrolments Registrar.

Bribie (red), Moreton (green), Stradbroke (blue), and K'gari Fraser (yellow).
Siblings are always placed in the same House.
Just so you know, new students' House allocations are advised when you are purchasing uniforms from the College Shop. It is listed on their system.
