Emmanuel College

Independent School

Australia's ninth, and one of the University of Queensland's first residential colleges, Emmanuel was founded by the Presbyterian Church of Queensland in 1911 with the first students taking up residence in Wickham Terrace in 1912. Emmanuel College was established to provide a supportive residential environment for students of The University of Queensland while they gained a first class liberal education. This continued a tradition that can be traced back to the great Universities of the world such as Oxford and Cambridge in the United Kingdom and more latterly to Harvard and Yale in the United States. Upon its inauguration, Emmanuel College was an all male residence but this changed in 1975 when women were admitted as Collegians. Now, the College numbers around 340 students with half its population being female. The College experienced further change when it moved from its original site on Wickham Terrace to its present location on the main University campus in St Lucia in 1955. A full program of academic support is in place throughout both semesters to assist students with their university study and an understanding of their chosen career. In keeping with the College strategic plan, which promotes Emmanuel College as “a centre of excellence for a liberal education”, graduate tutors are employed to assist students to a deeper and more critical understanding of the discipline they have chosen. The College also appoints student leaders to mentor students within the residential wings, providing a broad support network for all students. This network includes referral to professional counselling through the University support services if needed. Students can enjoy sporting, cultural and social activities throughout the year both at the University and through inter-collegiate sport and activities.

Freshwater Christian College

Independent School

Freshwater Christian College, formerly known as Cairns Christian College, was established in 1983 by Cairns Christian Centre in order to provide a high quality education that would support the values of Christian families.
