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). 





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

Congratulations !


At Worship and Praise on Friday 3rd February 2017 the Year 2 Students were presented with their Big Rescue Bibles.


For 3-5 year olds (and their parents)
In the Library. 

Starting soon in 2017



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.

Little Lost sheep?


In with the Chooks?
Chooks weren’t happy!  
Sheep got his own pen!

Miss Clark is caring for it!



On Monday 17th August 2015 our school took part in the Red Cross Cake Bake Day organised by the year 3 classes and their teachers Miss Clark and Ms Hodges. 

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.



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.
