Parents wishing their child to take private instrumental lessons during the school day may contact the Performing Arts Coordinator or complete and return the appropriate enrolment forms.

There are also opportunities for students to work in small group musical ensembles, choirs and orchestra.

Sporting Teams Program

Immanuel Primary School has a strong sporting tradition. The sporting environment we strive for is one that provides maximum participation for students in a variety of sports with the emphasis on positive involvement and ‘personal best’ achievements rather than winning at all costs. No student is turned away from representing IPS in their chosen sport.

The aim is to promote students’ social, physical and personal development, provide enjoyment and a measure of success for all, promote skill acquisition and improvement and development of positive sporting behaviour including self-control, discipline, cooperation, tolerance and respect for others.

To this end IPS has developed one of the most comprehensive sporting team programs of any primary school in South Australia. Our students are involved in House, School, District, State and National events covering key sporting areas.

This solid foundation has been an outcome from a very comprehensive and rigorous Physical Education Program. Our goal is to give every student the opportunity to discover their talents and then encourage them to test themselves as to how far they can go – all in an encouraging environment with thoughtful and skilled coaches.

Outdoor Education Program

Immanuel Primary School has an Outdoor Education program that enables students to reinforce and extend  their learning and social skill development in a non-school setting. This involves students from Year 3 – Year 6. Camps are usually related to the class units of inquiry and may include leadership development activities.
