State-of-the-art building provides new opportunities for Emmanuel

20 September 2018

Emmanuel Catholic College celebrated the official Opening and Blessing of their new English and The Arts Centre on Friday 7 September 2018.

The state-of-the-art facility was completed in late June, and is a jewel in the crown of the College as it celebrates its 20thAnniversary.

The new building overlooks the natural landscape of the Beeliar wetlands and functions as a hub for the College’s artistic needs, including a kiln room, film studio, media, arts and graphics rooms.

It also encompasses the English Learning area featuring an open-plan reading lounge, inspiring staff and students to reconnect with their love of books.

College Principal Leo Di Gregorio welcomed more than 160 attendees to the opening including College Chaplain Fr Bryan Rosling, CEWA Deputy Executive Director Peter Yensch, CEWA Principal School Advisor John Aldous, City of Cockburn Mayor Logan K Howlett JP and the College’s foundation Principal, Barry Alfirevich.

The blessing ceremony was officiated by Fr Rosling who blessed Salvado Crucifixes for each room of the building. The Salvado Crucifixes are significant to the College, as they received a gift of a Cross in this style in their foundation year.

Following the official proceedings the College held 20thanniversary celebrations and all guests, including past staff, had the opportunity to view the innovative new learning space and take in the surroundings which students and staff at the College will enjoy for many years to come.
