Thursday 29 March 2018


On  Maundy Thursday Students in Years 5, 6 and 7 took part in the ALWS Awareness Day.  The theme for the day was “Survive or Thrive”. 

The day focused on working together with people living in poverty to improve their situation.
“We learned about children living in poverty, about how they live and what they have to do to survive.  We learned about the work that children and adults have to do and how little they are paid.  We also learned about the difficulties they experience just to get basic things like food and water.  It helped us appreciate how lucky we are in Australia.”              Maddy, Year 7

This day had some great links to the Year 5 unit on Sharing the Planet, which focuses on how resources are shared and how this impacts on people.  It was also a great opportunity for students to reflect on the fact that we are part of a global community and we are connected to people in other parts of the world.




Congratulations !

Flynn,Seb, Zac on stage Gawler Fringe 2018.jpg

On Sunday 18 February, six year 7 students performed at the Gawler Fringe held at Walker Place.
The Fringe provided many activities for younger ages like face painting, balloon making, colouring activities and many sweets. There were plenty of spaces for families to sit back relax and enjoy the show. As well as seated areas, there were food facilities with a variety of shops around, a sausage sizzle, a coffee van and more. There were many students from other schools that also had the opportunity to perform, including students from the Xavier Year 12 program and St Brigid’s Primary School.
Every one of the schools performers were very nervous but still amazed the audience with the talent that was brought to the stage. All of the performers would have never got to the stage if we had not been supported by our friends and family but most importantly our music teacher, Mr Dwayne Hueppauff. 

Emilie (singing soloist)
I thought it was a very memorable moment standing on stage and having fun singing in front of friends and family. It was an amazing opportunity that helped me with my performing skills.
Maddy and Sinead (dancers)
Performing at the Gawler Fringe was an amazing experience to build up our confidence and to express ourselves to the local community. It was a moment that we will never forget.
Seb, Flynn, Zac (boy band)
It was an experience that we will never forget. It was enjoyable being able to perform in front of the community that we live amongst.



Last Thursday 8th June Students Emilie, Laura and Brodie plus Principal Daryl Trigg had a gig on Barossa Radio BBBfm.

Our school was invited to have a half hour session to showcase our school.  We talked about the history of the school, we advertised the upcoming Cabaret, and showcased the fun and unique things which Immanuel offers including Japanese, Music Program, SAKPG, Sports.  Emilie showcased her musical talents and sang “You don’t know my name”. 


YEAR 2 BOOK SALE Thursday 24 August 2017

Thank you to all who donated and purchased books from the Year 2 book sale.
$167.55 was donated to an amazing charity: The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Thanks for your support


Our students have just commenced a new Inquiry:
Central Idea:
Change can be permanent or temporary

Lines of Inquiry:

  • How materials can be combined
  • Ways forces cause change
  • Different forms of matter

They began by conducting some experiments to show the students about changes that take place with materials, and to get students engaged, focused and asking questions. It was an exciting afternoon!


Indigenous story teller Scott visited Immanuel‟s year 2‟s the other week as part of their unit of inquiry on stories. Students were involved with some Aboriginal stories and music, along with learning to create some dot paintings

Walk my Way

Picture1 walk my way.png

On Tuesday 4th July some of our staff are participating in the  “Walk My Way” 26km walking challenge from Hahndorf to Beaumont Adelaide. 

This is a project through the ALWS to fundraise and support refugee kids.  The 26km track follows the steps of pioneer Lutheran women, who fled Prussia as ‘refugees’ to escape persecution.   While we walk in their footsteps and celebrate the 500th anniversary of reformation, we will also reflect on the journey of today’s refugees seeking safety.    For more information go to

Immanuel students and families are invited to sponsor our Immanuel walkers by bringing in your loose coins on Wednesday 28th June from arrival time and build a pathway of coins  from the school entrance gate at Daly Street through to the Cross in Taikondi (shelter). 





On Thursday we farewelled the group of 11 Japanese girls who after their 21 day stay in Gawler will return to Mushasino Tokyo, Japan.   During their time at Immanuel each student was able to interact with students in our classrooms, learn about our Australian customs, our money, our food and practice the english language.  They visited many tourist sites near Gawler and in Adelaide.  Thanks so much for the families who opened their homes and hosted a student.  These memories will be treasured forever.

Over the past few years our school has taken part in the Red Cross Cake Bake Day organised by the year 3 classes and their teachers. 

There were so many delicious looking cakes.  Little cup cakes, big cakes, decorated cakes, cream cakes.  So many of our students (and families) had been busy baking and decorating.    Thank you so much for your time and efforts.

Many thanks to Esme and Shirley who came to help judge the best creative cakes.  The cakes were then sold off at the end of the day.  $557.55 was raised, which will be donated to the Red Cross.

The Big Cake Bake continues during August and funds raised enables the Red Cross to continue their vital everyday work in Australia, from assisting elderly and isolated people to stay in their home, to providing a nutritious breakfast for children who might otherwise go to school hungry, and responding to natural disasters as soon as they occur including relief and recovery assistance for people and communities affected.


Thanks for visiting our stall at the Gawler Show last weekend 26 &27 August.  We gave away over 700 post it notes and lollies with the Treasure Trail.

We had our 3D printer working away making Immanuel keyrings.

The “Guess the Pumpkin weight” competition brought lots of interest. Its actual weight was 5kg and Ellie Daly (Immanuel Year 3) was the closest guess.

Miss Freund entered many Immanuel food produce items in the competitions in the exhibit hall and we brought home 5 firsts, 7 seconds and 3 other awards.

Thanks to the many volunteers (staff, parents and students) who helped on the stall.



Band 1.jpg

The Balaklava Eisteddfod is a musical competition held annually inviting students to perform in front of a live audience. 

This year the two Immanuel School Bands participated in the Junior Rock Band category.  Having to perform several songs, each band wowed the judges and came away with a First and Third place award. 

This is a great achievement for our school and for the students.  It shows we have a strong music program and are improving each year. 

Thanks to Mr Hueppauff for helping the bands prepare for this competition.

Congratulations students!



Students began the Premiers Be Active Challenge on 4th Sept 2017.

The challenge is to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity on at least 5 days of the week for at least 4 weeks. After 4 weeks of daily recorded physical activity your child will be rewarded with a medal. This is a worthwhile challenge as physical activity can help with focus, improve behaviour and promote a positive attitude. Your child‟s teacher will keep a record for the 4 weeks.

However we ask that if your child is absent that they still complete the 60 min of physical activity or make up the time on the weekend.
