Cultural Activities

The cultural side of Emmanuel College provides numerous opportunities for students to get involved, have fun, showcase their talents, and compete against other colleges in a variety of competitions.

Throughout the year, there are opportunities for students with all types of talents to get involved — from singers, dancers, musicians, and backstage theatre work, to artists, public speakers, and chess-players. College-wide participation at any skill level is encouraged. Supporters are also treasured, and any night spent cheering on your fellow Blue Dogs is not soon forgotten.

Inter-College Competition (ICC) cultural activities include:

  • Art Show
  • Bandfest
  • Chess
  • Choralfest
  • College Idol
  • Dancefest
  • Debating
  • One Act Play
  • Oratory

Emmanuel College performs well in ICC events, winning first place in the Cultural Cup in 2013, 2016 and 2017. Each year, Emmanuel hosts a Cultural Awards Dinner to recognise our students’ efforts and celebrate their achievements.

Emmanuel is also proud to be home to Theatre Restaurant — a yearly performance accompanied by a dinner and open for three nights to Emmanuel students, family, friends and other colleges. Theatre Restaurant is a uniquely Emmanuel experience and allows students to be involved in the cultural aspect of College life without the element of competition.
