Students will engage with natural rainforest, a recycling facility run by the College’s cross-campus Eco Club, a 5,000L worm farm, an Environmental Centre and purpose-built eco-friendly waterway to teach water conservation, all onsite!

Care for the Environment and Community

It has never been more important to teach children about sustainability and care for their environment. Critically, Immanuel students are actively encouraged and empowered to take a role in looking after the environment. Not only do these lessons serve to encourage your child as a community-minded individual, these moments gift them with a sense of confidence and agency over their own future.

Staff at Immanuel Lutheran College believe that happy, confident children make the best learners. We nurture your child’s interests and talents in a positive and engaging environment as the pathway to academic achievement along with overall wellness. ILC’s nurturing professionals are there to help your child develop confidence and to oversee their transition into a balanced young adult.
