Welcome to Emmaus

Our school was established in 1997 and Emmaus Christian School has a strong focus on building a community where parents and teachers work together to develop the whole child.

It is getting near the end of the school year and into some seriously warm days. Your teachers are working hard finishing off End of Year Reports while maintaining useful lesson planning and delivery – I am very proud of the efforts that each teacher makes at Emmaus. Theirs is a good example to all our students because as I have mentioned in the past, it is their effort, more than their talent, that will determine their success in life.
Another word of warning about cyber matters. The latest social media app is ‘KiK’ which allows stranger to stranger communication in private, using false names, and conversations that disappear after a few screens. This makes it even more difficult for parents to monitor and/or supervise. We have had some cause for concern about this app being used by some of our students recently. I would be cautious about allowing it for a child.
With holidays coming up, I trust you plan hours of traditional (ie non-electronic) play time as well as computer-blob time for your charges! Facebook ‘friends’ are not friends; people you actually do activities with are friends. ‘LOLing’ is not laughing with others; seeing and hearing laughter, scrunched up faces, wrinkled watery eyes, and maybe even pushing each other’s shoulder is true shared laughter! Sharing a photo or sentimental poem or opinion is not sharing; sitting or walking with a friend and chatting is (and your kids won’t put on any weight either!) Oh, and reading Facebook posts is not half the reading that a good book offers.
