About us

Principal's Welcome

Hello and welcome to Emmanuel Anglican College,

Robert Tobias - Principal
Mr Robert Tobias

Emmanuel Anglican College is a Pre school to Year 12 coeducational College founded in the Anglican Tradition. It is located in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales and widely renowned as a centre for academic and pastoral care excellence throughout our region and beyond. I am extremely proud to be part of the EAC community and incredibly blessed to be given the opportunity to lead this exceptional College.

A wonderful community feel, exceptional teachers, excellent pastoral care, strong Christian values, outstanding results in external testing and first class facilities are among the themes that parents continue to name as reasons for seeking enrolment for their children at Emmanuel Anglican College.

I believe that all students learn best in an environment in which they are known and cared for and as such I endeavour to know the name of every student in the College and that of their parents. I also encourage all our parents to be actively involved in the life of the College and to build strong and positive relationships with our staff as experience tells us that whenever the school and families work closely together there are always great outcomes for students.

I readily remind our students that it is a great privilege to live in our region and attend a College that offers them so many wonderful opportunities to learn and grow in such a safe and caring environment. With great privilege comes great responsibility and I challenge all our students to:

  • take advantage of every opportunity made available to them to learn both within and beyond the classroom
  • participate in as broad a range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities as possible
  • nurture and develop positive relationship with all members of the EAC community

Our hope is that all our students will graduate from the College as confident, articulate, principled, resilient, independent, lifelong learners who have the skills to thrive in our global society and a desire to make the world a better place for all humanity.

Thank you for taking the time to consider Emmanuel Anglican College for your children. I am always happy to meet with prospective families, tour the College facilities with them, discuss their hopes and dreams for their children and to outline the many opportunities available to the students as a member of the EAC community.

Kind regards,

Robert Tobias
Principal
