  • The Emmanuel Chapel, built in 1939-1940, was moved to the Emmanuel College campus and dedicated as the College Chapel on 7 July 1991. The beautiful Chapel is our signature building and it features a large number of magnificent stained glass windows.
  • The Graham Leo Library is a vast facility with a large collection of books and offering access to the latest electronic resources, research facilities and tutoring opportunities. There are separate Junior and Senior School wings where services provided are tailored to the age-appropriate needs of the students using the Library.

There is fibre connected internet, a dynamic intranet, an open network so that students can bring their own device to school and a virtual windows environment available anywhere and anytime for all device platforms. 
  • The Arts and Manual Arts Centres are well lit and equipped, safe facilities where students can be creative and exhibit their excellent works in open spaces.  
  • Little e’s Kindergarten with its two classrooms and secure playground facilities is cutting edge and was recently officially graded as exceeding the national standards in all seven quality areas.

  • The Swimming Pool Complex features a 25metre, 8 lane, heated pool under a translucent roof but with open sides allowing for the free flow of fresh air and there is an enclosed warm-up space for those cooler days. The separate fully enclosed and purpose-built Learn-to-Swim pool was opened in 2014.
