Valedictory Service Class of 2018

What a special night! At the Year 12 Valedictory Service at the Adelaide Town Hall last night, we honoured the Class of 2018. Our Valedictory Speaker entrepreneur Crispian Fielke (1995), delivered an inspiring address to our students, emphasizing importance of good interpersonal relationships in life. We loved his '2019 Starter Pack' with advice on the 'basics of life' which included among other things: "Travel. Listen. Ring your parents at least once/week. Write down your dreams & have a crack at them. Drink water. Be open to love"! And there was barely a dry eye in the house when Zali De Pizzol and Maxwell Lambert gave their moving final speeches as School Captains. As we farewell our Year 12s for the final time this morning, we wish them all the best for exams and moderation in the weeks to come, and every happiness and success as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. #plusultra

Pedal Prix hits the track

Congratulations to our Pedal Prix team who had a wonderful weekend competing in cars ‘Ron’ & ‘James’ in Murray Bridge last weekend in the final Round of Australian International Pedal Prix HPV Super Series. 200+ teams compete non stop over 24 hours racing around the 1.7km circuit on the banks of the Murray River. Both teams did really well with all riders giving 100% pushing until the chequered flag. A huge thanks to our amazing parents who make it all happen.

Showcase 2018:What a night!

Immanuel Showcase 2018: The Best of Stage & Screen at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre last night was an amazing display of the talents of our student vocalists, musicians, dancers and technicians. Thank you to the 200+ students who make us proud with the dedication they show to performing arts at Immanuel, our incredible staff for making it all happen and to special guests Kim Spargo, Adam Page & Julian Ferraretto. And to the 1000 members of our wonderful Immanuel community for coming along to support our students and enjoy the entertainment.

Welcoming back our most senior Old Scholars

Such a special day today honouring our 123 year history and welcoming back our Old Scholars for the Senior Old Scholars Assembly. With a record attendance this year, those who started in 1958 or earlier attended a special service including a roll call, with a 'rockstar' applause reserved for our oldest Old Scholars in attendance Grace & Melva from the Class of 1936. It's wonderful for our current students to connect with our history and those who wore the same motto on their blazer all those years ago.

Sleeping rough for a great cause

A powerful experience for our students who 'slept rough' for Vinnies Winter Sleep Out last weekend to support the work of Vinnies SA. They ate a meal similar to that provided by 'Fred's Van', made shelters to protect themselves from the cold and donated goods and money to assist Vinnie's great work. Some valuable lessons here; the most important being, no matter the situation, all people need to be shown the dignity we all deserve.

Science & Engineering Challenge regional winners

For the 5th year in a row our team won the Regional Round of the Science & Engineering Challenge. As always they displayed outstanding teamwork, problem solving and collaboration. Results across the day were very close with the Immanuel College Team holding a consistent 2nd place across the day by a narrow point margin. A number of our activity teams were also very successful taking out 1st place in their events helping confirm the overall first place event. Congratulations Team Immanuel!

House Community Service Pledges

Our ten Houses have taken Community Service Pledges this year to serve the community in a variety of ways; we are very proud of the work they are doing. For example Kavel House Year 12 students recently volunteered to provide meals to 40 families at Ronald McDonald House Adelaide. Dohler House conducted a food drive for Foodbank SA and donated more then 122kg that was turned into more than 244 meals for those in need. We look forward to hearing more about the progress of House pledges.

Immanuel students hit the slopes for SASKI

Immanuel students competed at the SA Interschool Snowsports Championships in the holidays at Falls Creek. Well done to those who participated and braved the adverse conditions and to all the families who supported them. It was also great to see a number of other Immanuel students on the slopes. Congratulations to Patrick (Year 11) awarded a silver medal in Division 1 Men's Individual Giant Slalom, and to Lucilla (Year 11) and Marina (Year 9) who placed silver and gold for the Divisions 1 and 2 Women's Giant Slalom events respectively.
