We help every student shine!

At Penola, we believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. We give them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.

Creative and Performing Arts

We encourage our students to explore their passions and talents. We have a range of opportunities available for students to participate in creative and performing arts activities and programs such as music, drama and dance.

Penola offers a wide range of CAPTIVATE programs and has been a dance hub for the diocesan program allowing students to collaborate and perform with other schools.

School Sport

Sport is a valued part of a school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing opportunities for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocese Secondary Schools Sports Council.

Social Justice

Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. This positive participation and actions can be seen in how we interact and learn with one another, work collaboratively and take ownership of our behaviour as well as active involvement in faith-based experiences.

Excursions, Camps and Retreats

We provide a variety of opportunities for students to get out of the classroom and explore. School trips allow students to observe new things such as rare and exotic wildlife and plants, different cultures, and stories of our history. These experiences lead to deeper understanding and connection with learning.

Camps and retreats can be wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories!
