The Ken Thamm Centre (KTC) is a Pre Prep to Year 12 Learning Resource Centre comprising a lecture theatre, a variety of class areas, sound-proof studios, individual study areas and a reading lounge. Four hundred students from all sectors of the College can be accommodated in a variety of learning settings at the same time.

More than 140,000 learning resources (books, videos, charts, CD ROMs, sound recordings, magazines and games) can be accessed through the KTC by students, staff and Immanuel families. There are PCs, laptops and a large variety of audiovisual and multimedia equipment available to facilitate student and staff learning. The KTC was officially opened on 23 February 2003 by Mrs Irma Thamm in honour of her husband, Pastor Ken Thamm, who was a founder of the College in 1979.
