Brooklyn Park Campus opening 2020

We are excited to announce the opening of a second campus at Brooklyn Park that will provide an Early Learning Centre and Junior School for Foundation to Year 6.

Located at 34 Lipsett Terrace, the Brooklyn Park Campus will be an extension of the excellent standard of non-denominational, Christ-centred education already provided at South Plympton Campus.

From Term 1, 2020 we are offering enrolments for Early Learning through to Year 2. 

Our new campus will continue to uphold the existing values, mission and vision of Emmaus Christian College. Governed and operated by the existing Board and Executive Leadership team we will ensure a consistent, authentically Christian and non-denominational approach to education.  

Brooklyn Park Campus

Early Learning Centre

From commencement in January 2020, the ELC will open and offer enrolment for children aged 3 to 5 years old. The nationally adopted Early Years Learning Framework will be presented from a Christian worldview, enriched by embracing practices from Guided Play Based Learning, Reggio Emilia and Nature Play.

Junior School

From commencement in Term 1, 2020 enrolments will be offered for Foundation through to Year 2. We believe this staged development will create a community based environment where your child will be nurtured and supported. It will also allow each student to individually grow and learn as the school grows. The commencement of other year levels faster than the above growth plan would be considered based on demand. 

All Brooklyn Park Campus students will have guaranteed access to the South Plympton Middle School at the conclusion of Year 6 at Brooklyn Park.

Applications for enrolments for Foundation to Year 2, 2020 and beyond are now open. Please submit one application form per child and use the sibling application form for subsequent children.
