Opened in January 2020, our new Brooklyn Park Campus is an expansive, modern Junior School that caters for 300 students from Early Learning to Year 6. Located at 34 Lipsett Terrace, it is an extension of the excellent standard of non-denominational, Christ-centred education already provided at South Plympton Campus.
Early Learning Centre
Our Early Learning Centre (ELC) is the first step on an education pathway at Emmaus Christian College. The ELC is underpinned by the existing College vision, values and philosophy. The nationally adopted Early Years Learning Framework is presented from a Christian worldview, enriched by embracing practices from Guided Play-Based Learning, Reggio Emilia and Nature Play.
Our high quality, long day care education program is tailored for children aged between three and five. We offer a four-year-old preschool/kindy program that meets all the requirements of children transitioning into school.
Foundation to Year 6
In 2020 the Campus commenced with two classes for Foundation to Year 2 and in 2021 the Campus accommodates over 60 students in three classes and over 60 students up to Year 4.
We believe this staged development will create a community-based environment where your child will be nurtured and supported. It will also allow each student to individually grow and learn as the school grows. The commencement of other year levels faster than the above growth plan would be considered based on demand.
Facilities include (not limited to):
- Generously-sized classrooms with wet areas
- Library Resource and Technology Centre
- Specialist learning areas including Art Room and Music Room
- Outdoor PE learning area with hard court
- State-of-the-art outdoor equipment and nature playground
- Access to the Adelaide West Uniting Church auditorium for whole-school events
- Access to Instrumental Tutors during the day
We will continue to develop the facility to cater for the organic growth of the College each year.
One College, Two Campuses
Governed and operated by the existing Board and Executive Leadership team will ensure a consistent, authentically Christian and non-denominational approach to education. Our existing Head of Junior School, Helen Vonow has oversight of the Brooklyn Park Campus and our Principal, Andrew Linke will remain as Principal of both campuses.
In the early years of Campus establishment, students enjoy being a part of a larger College Community through many combined campus events. Both South Plympton and Brooklyn Park students come together for major Junior School events such as Athletics Carnivals, Swimming Carnivals, Musical performances and special Assembly events.
Guaranteed ELC to 12 Pathway
At Emmaus we provide a complete schooling pathway for all our students across both campuses. All Brooklyn Park Campus students will have guaranteed access to the South Plympton Middle School at the conclusion of Year 6 at Brooklyn Park.
