Emmanuel Christian community school is growing

A GIRRAWHEEN school celebrated the completion of its $ 5.5 million redevelopment, which will accommodate an increasing number of students.

Emmanuel Christian Community School officially opened its two-story classrooms in the west wing of its high school campus on Salcott Road on April 21.

The school received $ 1.5 million from the federal government for the project and Senator WA Dean Smith attended the inauguration along with religious and community leaders, council officials, educators and state members of Parliament. .

The school began in 1982 with 22 students divided into two classes, and has grown to around 700, including 256 high school students.

It became a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school last year with its first cohort of Grade 12 students graduating in 2020.

The redevelopment involved the demolition of an old one-story building and the construction of a two-story facility with 11 general learning areas for high school students.

Designed by Hartree and Associates, the building overlooks Hainsworth Oval and has covered walkways leading to the green space.

Principal Gary Harris said the school will host a twilight tour of the high school campus and an information night on May 5 starting at 5 p.m.

“This is for students in elementary and upper secondary schools, and families interested in an affordable Christian experience in a private school, to prepare them for life beyond grade 12,” he said.

Senator Smith said it was a privilege and a pleasure to visit the “impressive new facilities”.

“Emmanuel Christian Community School is a very special school community, a showcase of multiculturalism,” he said.

“These new classrooms will further enhance the very rewarding learning experience here.”
