Our Vision

Penola Catholic College is a learning community where the values of integrity, peace and justice are brought to life for students, staff, families and the wider community of our parish and diocese.

Our Mission

The beliefs and traditions of the Catholic faith are the foundation for our learning, teaching and relationships. We nurture the spiritual development of students, staff and parents and see enormous value in formal religious education. We treat each person with dignity and respect and we acknowledge and welcome parents and caregivers as the primary educators of their children.

We support students in becoming independent, thoughtful and compassionate young people. We work together to ensure learning at Penola Catholic College is inclusive, positive, challenging and enjoyable. We provide a safe, caring and welcoming environment where staff value and demonstrate the importance of continual professional learning. Penola Catholic College challenges students to strive for personal growth and development in the spiritual, academic and community spheres.
