We use the word community to describe the most important aspect of our College - people and relationships.
In keeping with our commitment to produce compassionate young people who contribute positively to society, the College takes its role in the community seriously. From student participation in the neighbouring Immanuel Gardens Retirement Village and nursing home, to our highly respected Immanuel Arts Festival and Fruehlingsfest Spring Fair, we aim to take the Immanuel spirit out into the community while also inviting the community in to share our facilities and vision.
Each year, students participate in Australia Day and ANZAC Day ceremonies and many of the College's music ensembles, including the popular Vivace Strings Ensemble, are in high demand with regular requests to perform at corporate events.
All students are encouraged to become active community members through their involvement in:
- Charity fundraising
- Local, national and international mission work
- Coast care initiatives
- Environmental protection.
Immanuel is proud to deliver the highly respected literature festival - Voices on the Coast. This event is held in conjunction with the University of the Sunshine Coast and won the 2009 Australian Award for Teaching Excellence in the category Excellence by a School and its Community.
By forming key partnerships with essential community based groups and other providers of first class educational services on the Sunshine Coast, Immanuel will continue to provide students with a range of options to meet positive goals during and beyond their school years.
