About us


Emmanuel Anglican College is situated on approximately 6ha of land in Ballina. Architecturally designed in keeping with the style and climate of northern New South Wales, building commenced on the site in 1999, and the College to grow and develop its resources as the needs of the community develop.

In 2004, a large 2-storey Science and Technology Centre was constructed, allowing us to enhance delivery of these key learning areas. In 2010, we opened a new 2-storey library - called the Joan Pickup Library (after the College's first teacher) - featuring the latest in information technology and learning resources.

In 2013, the College officially opened a purpose built hospitality Trade Training Centre. The facility - called The Ezzy Centre (after one of the College’s founding Council members) – features a commercial training kitchen and 2 function rooms.

Current specialist facilities include Science, Hospitality, Food Technology, Art and Wood Technics, Drama and 2 Music Rooms. The Music Room opens out onto a purpose built staging area. An all-purpose court has been constructed that accommodates five sports, and a hockey field area forms part of our grounds. Extensive sports ovals form a magnificent vista at the front of the College.

EAC Campus

St Mary's Anglican Parish provides the church for use on formal chapel occasions.

With such a large site, the College Council has developed a College Master Plan that provides for our continuing long-term growth.
