Emmaus College, North Rockhampton, is a co-educational systemic Catholic secondary college. We are a two campus college of 1150 students, with Years 8-10 based on the Yaamba Road campus and Year 11 and 12 students on the Main Street campus. Emmaus College has as its foundational story the well-known â€œJourney to Emmausâ€ story from the Gospel of Luke. The theme of â€œjourneyâ€ is embraced by the college and is a metaphor for portraying the growth that all people experience in developing their spirituality, intellect, physical capabilities and wisdom. The college's Mission is threefold: Religious/Spiritual, Educational and Pastoral. At Emmaus College, we endeavour in all aspects of curriculum to present our students with a consistent and coherent view of life: a view that sees religion and spirituality as an integral part of life. Opportunities for the faith development of our students and staff are offered through activities such as retreats, social justice workshops and camps. Care and support for students is a responsibility shared by all at Emmaus College. It is expressed through the development of right relationships and the provision of positive learning experiences which acknowledge the gifts and respond to the needs of others. As a community of learners, the college offers a broad curriculum catering for tertiary education bound students and those interested in vocational education. Through a wide variety of enriching learning experiences, each student is encouraged to reach their full potential. A strong learning support program is offered. The co-curricular programme is extensive with many sporting, academic, service and cultural activities being offered. Of particular note is the highly regarded annual Musical production which attracts a very significant involvement from students, staff members and parents. We encourage all students to be involved in co-curricular activities as they provide excellent opportunities for students to develop confidence, make friendships, learn new skills and experience..
