Original Building Construction

In the early 1960s, the local parish priests purchased a large, 8 hectare, undeveloped block in Altona North. Through the labour of the parents of the school's initial students, the austere block was transformed into an attractive property. The College's primary edifice, the three-storey Jubilee Building, was completed in 1969. The Chaminade Library was established in 1971. The Generous Art/Craft/Science Lab and the senior classroom building was opened in 1979. The administrative complex and gymnasium were established in 1982 and the Jubille Building was extensively renovated in 1998. In 2004, with the assistance of a Commonwealth Government grant, work commenced on enlarging the library complex and the building of two new computer labs. These developments were completed in 2005 and the College has not undergone any significant renovations since. Emmanuel College Diary]
