Principal Tony Hirst says the college is undergoing several exciting changes. “The buildings are only one component of change taking place at Emmaus College. The Year 9 students are now located at the Burwood Campus for the Y9@E program, the Year 11/12 students are at Vermont South and a vertical pastoral care structure has been introduced,” says Mr Hirst.

“The new senior learning centre is designed with an emphasis on natural light, spacious interiors and flexible room usage. The learning centre contains 11 classrooms, a kitchenette and a seminar area. All rooms are equipped with state of the art AV equipment and the latest in wireless internet technology.

“The Tony Frizza Stadium, named in recognition of the vision and work of former principal Tony Frizza, is a “striking new facility”, with double basketball court, fitness room, sport offices, change rooms and toilets.
