Principal’s Welcome

I am honoured to lead Penola Catholic College, where our dedicated teachers are focused on education that promotes a sense of personal success for each student. High expectations are evident in all aspects of school life, and our students are encouraged to exceed their academic expectations and achieve their personal and career goals for a promising future.

Students at Penola embrace contemporary learning skills that ensure they are highly employable post school, and prepared for whatever future they decide upon - university study, college/TAFE study, or commencing employment.
