Our Facilities

School Uniform

At Emmaus the wearing of correct school uniform is compulsory for all students. The School Board has developed this policy which endeavours to ensure there is no variation in clothing items or appearance, thus avoiding peer pressure and conflict, both for parents and school.  The official uniform supplier is Lowes.

Uniforms can be purchased at Lowes,  Colonnades Shopping Centre, Noarlunga or through Lowes online store.


Student Well Being

At Emmaus, we believe that all students have the right to learn and develop socially and emotionally in a safe environment. We offer a variety of ways to ensure this happens for our students.
