Penola Catholic College is a Catholic community, that cultivates a Catholic imagination, where prayer and liturgy are a lived experience of our faith.
In the Diocese of Parramatta students all schools regularly engage in activities to support Catholic Mission with fundraising and awareness-raising initiatives.
The connection to the wider community is established through active collaboration.
Religious Education is at the heart of the curriculum offered at Penola.
Staff and students are encouraged to both celebrate and model the gospel values in their daily relationships. Students live out this example as Catechists (scripture teachers) in local state primary schools coordinated through Our Lady of the Way Parish, Emu Plains and contribute effectively to church, society and culture.
The annual Penola Day liturgy and celebrations link the school to the region’s Catholic history and heritage. The day allows students to explore greater opportunities to be part of a wider Catholic community in outreach and involvement in social justice initiatives to recommit to Catholic schooling in the 21st century.
