Teaching and learning at Emmaus College fosters effort and promotes excellence.
The aim is that all students of the College become successful learners. To that end subjects at Year 7 are a common course for all students with the exception of languages. At Year 7 students study two languages, each for one semester. All students will undertake one semester of Indonesian and have the choice of either Italian or German for the other Semester. This will enable students to make a choice of one language to continue in Year 8, based on a significant experience.
Provision has been made to meet specific needs of a number of students who require specialised programs, either to allow them to proceed at a slower rate or to extend talents and aptitudes identified in various situations.
Parents will be advised of these special programs in English and Mathematics and their permission requested for students to be allocated to appropriate groups.
Additional Language Support classes are offered as an alternative to LOTE to provide further assistance to cater for special needs.
