Primary Football

Term 2 has offered great opportunities to our Primary Football (Soccer) enthusiasts through the Year K – 4 after-school football programs and the Year 4 – 6 ASISSA Inter-school competition. The after-school programs have been a great success with almost 40 students taking part on a weekly basis.

These programs will continue in Term 3 as part of the Winter Sport Program. 

Term 3, Years 5 – 6 Futsal competition

In Term 3, Years 5 and 6 students will have the opportunity to take part in a new Futsal (indoor soccer) program. The program will involve a combination of training sessions and games against ASISSA schools each week:

  • Year 5 – 6 Boys Futsal: Monday afternoons 3.30 pm – 5.30 pm at Emanuel 
  • Year 5 – 6 Girls Futsal: Wednesday afternoons 3.30 pm – 5.30 pm at Emanuel

If your child is keen to play Futsal for the School, please contact Head of Football & Futsal, Aytek Genc via email     

High School Futsal success

Throughout Term 2, as part of the compulsory sport program, Emanuel took part in the Sydney Schools Cup Boys Futsal Competition. Emanuel had a great season coached by Futsalroo, Ethan De Melo, and remained undefeated.

The boys showed great improvement throughout the term, working well as a team and this was evident in their Grand Final win over Moriah 1-0.

Congratulations to Coby Baskin, Zac Fraser, Eli Jocum, David Miller, Aaron Pal, Jonah Raphael and Noah Sherman. 


Congratulations to the Years 7 and 8 students who recently took part in the Jewish Day Schools Futsal Gala Day. It was a great day of Futsal and it is always a great opportunity for students to connect with other schools in the Jewish community.

A special mention to the Junior Girls A’s: Jemma Adler, Emma Butt, Riley Carr, Hayley Kanevsky, Leah Mervis and Toni Sher who won the tournament, with a strong performance over Masada.
