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 and 2016. 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.
