Emmanuel HSC students celebrate their future

EMMANUEL Anglican College is committed to their students reaching their full potential and maintaining a love of learning, well after they leave school. As well as a focus on student recognition for achievements, Emmanuel Anglican College takes great pride in the all-rounded nature of their students.

The College has also focused on students getting involved in community service this year with many students joining the school's Lighthouse Project. The feedback provided by the community on the great work that the students have been doing is both impressive and enthusiastic.

The school year of 2016 has been another outstanding year for achievements for the students of Emmanuel Anglican College according to Principal, Robert Tobias. "Students across the College have continued to excel in terms of their learning and achievement in a broad range of areas.

"The vast array of academic, cultural and sporting success that our students have achieved in 2016 highlights that they are indeed leaders in many different fields of endeavour. Students from Emmanuel Anglican College also performed at the HSC Drama Showcase Onstage in February this year, to much enthusiasm and applause."

Profile of a School Captain

MANY Year 12 students at Emmanuel Anglican College have received early offers from Southern Cross, Griffith and University of New England, including girl's School Captain, Sarah Coghill.

According to Sarah's mother, Anita Coghill, Sarah has attended Emmanuel Anglican College since she was in Kindy. "Sarah is one of eight children who have been at Emmanuel since Kindy; she's participated in so many activities through the school, including representing the school in sports," explains Anita Coghill.

"Sarah has applied and been accepted at SCU, to do a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in primary teaching. She is also part of a coaching network, regularly babysits, and she is really passionate about quality teaching. It would be amazing is Sarah was to return to Emmanuel as a teacher. I can certainly see her doing her practical teacher training there.

"I know when she was voted school captain, she was really thrilled. The other school captain is the lovely Lewis Wright and they were voted in by both the teachers and the students and I know that being school captain will always be a beautiful memory for her."
