Our Story

Our  Story.jpg

Emmaus Catholic School opened in 1994 with an enrolment of 95. Today we have 250 students enrolled, from Reception to Year 7. We also offer a long transition programme for four year olds, our Little Learners programme.

 

Our school is named after the Bible story that tells about two disciples walking along the road to Emmaus and talking with each other about the death of Jesus. While they were walking, they were joined by a stranger and together they continued to talk about recent events. When evening came, the disciples invited the stranger to stay with them for a meal, he did. When the stranger blessed and broke the bread, the disciples recognised him as Jesus. 

This story reminds us to recognise the presence of Jesus in ourselves and each other.
