Grandparents and Special Friends Day was filled with laughter, appreciation, love and pure joy. It was a memorable day for our students and their visitors and for many of our students, it will be one of the highlights of the year. Grandparents’ and Special Friends Day is a chance for our students and the community to thank the grandparents and special friends for their ongoing love, care and support.
Our visitors began the day with a special welcome and concert held in the Immanuel College Chapel. Some of our Year 6 Student Leaders shared a message on ‘What makes Immanuel Special.’ This was followed by our orchestra and choirs entertaining the large audience and showcasing their outstanding talents.
Special time was then spent in the classrooms and there was definitely lots of excitement and joy as students shared their learning with loved ones. It was beautiful witnessing the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.
Thank you to the many volunteers who helped throughout the day with morning and afternoon tea. Thank you to all who contributed to the Year 6 Cake Stall and the Raffle. Your generous contributions will support the work of Australian Lutheran World Service, Childhood Cancer Association and our school Nature Play projects.

The theme of ‘Generous Spirits and Hearts of Gold’ was most certainly evident at the 2018 Gala Ball with many parents, staff and the wider community showing support of the school through their attendance, generous donations and ongoing service.
Mark Bickley entertained the lively crowd as our MC for the evening and past parent Paul McGrath led a spirited Major Auction with the support of Michael Fouyaxis. Past student Simela Petridis one of Adelaide’s prominent entertainers provided a great band, which encouraged all to get onto the dance floor. The extended dance time was enjoyed by all.
Tributes were presented to the late Robert Foord, who over many years had been a very generous supporter of the school, and retired Principal, Mr Robert Hoff and his wife Mrs Sandra Hoff, acknowledging their contribution to Immanuel.
I join with many others in congratulating the ambitious P & F Association for providing us with such a memorable and fun night. Parents both new to the event and those who have attended for years commented on the stunning room with a view and the professional organisation and the enthusiastic team of Parents and Friends members. Thank you for working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the event was a success.
Thanks to everyone who contributed in any way for your generous spirits and hearts of gold. We look forward to putting the money towards providing resources for all students to enhance their learning in the new Arts and Design Studio.
How blessed the school is to have such generosity.
A phenomenal effort!
