“Andrea, [Principal, South Plympton Secondary] I want to thank you, and all of the Emmaus staff for being part of the “village” for my children. You have given them such a wonderful start. Thank you for the love, the care, and the way you all go above and beyond. I appreciate this school so much. As our son, Nick, said tonight after The Rite Journey Homecoming Ceremony, “We chose the right school, didn’t we Mum?” Thank you, and may God bless you and all the staff. November 2023”

Margaret Dow — Parent of Year 9 and Year 12

“The school focuses on a child’s holistic development and teachers are actively involved to impart on a spiritual, emotional and academic level to every child, individually. Children are recognised to be uniquely gifted and are celebrated in exercising their gifts and talents. They see the potential of each student and they will go the extra mile for that individual student to ensure they reach her/his full potential... We are so thankful to God today and praise Him for his providence in guiding our footsteps towards Emmaus Christian College, which we have found to be in accordance with our hearts' desires.”
