Student's Power Cup Guernsey design

Year 12 student Eytahnyia's stunning design has been selected for our 2017 Aboriginal Power Cup guernsey. Eytahnyia says her design reflects the fact that Immanuel College is on Kaurna land, and while our Aboriginal students are from many different language and cultural groups, "we can all come together on this land and become one." The design features the Kaurna word 'Taikurti' meaning ‘relatives’, and an image showing the contrast of the different faces of the emu (of the Kaurna people) and red kangaroo (of the Adelaide Plains). The Aboriginal Power Cup run by Port Adelaide Football Club & South Australian Aboriginal Sports Training Academy, involves over 400 students from around the state helping them connect with their Aboriginal culture, community and environment. The football carnival kicks off next week at Alberton Oval.

Our Annual Blue & Gold goes a little bit country

Last Saturday night members of our wonderful parents and friends community ventured to the Adelaide Showgrounds for the annual Blue & Gold. The Blue & Gold is always a highlight of the Immanuel social calendar. This year it was held in the Old Ram Shed with the theme 'The Blue and Gold Bash' causing a city-wide shortage of checked shirts, as people donned their 'finest' country garb! Whip cracking, bull riding, line dancing were all part of the fun as the wonderful band Acoustic Juice provided the entertainment that got everyone up on their feet. What a wonderful night of fun with friends new and old.

Students headed for a 'summer' at Oxford University

Year 10 students Lucilla and Harry are heading to Oxford University this July holidays for their Summer Seminar Double Major program. The program is a week-long intellectual immersion for students in grades 10-12 enabling dedicated students to plunge into the subjects they love. They will each complete a double major and five minor subjects of Genetics, Business Management, Law, Medicine, International Relations, Economics and Critical Thinking. We wish them the very best and hope it is a rewarding experience for them both.

Generations in Jazz accolades for Immanuel students

At the annual Generations in Jazz Festival in Mt Gambier this year, our Vocal Jazz Blue were announced as the Best Large Vocal Ensemble in Division 1, but the awards didn't end there. From over 4,800 students, Jazzie Vanua (Year 8) received the award for ‘most promising vocalist’ and Jordan Paterson (Year 11) was announced in the Division Two SuperBand on flute.

Record breaking Relay for Life team

We are so proud of the 178 students who participated in Cancer Council SA's Relay For Life on 6 May. This was the largest ever team from Immanuel College who have broken our previous fundraising records by raising $26,700 for cancer research. Our students walked to remember, support and fight back against cancer. A heart felt thank you to all in our community who donated so generously.
