Penola acknowledges parents and carers as each student’s most influential, primary and essential educators.

We encourage parents to be actively involved in school life and work with us to ensure the best educational outcomes for your child.

Parents are also actively encouraged to attend school events such as sports carnivals, exhibitions and performance evenings.

Parents as Partners - Penola Catholic College Emu Plains
How can I contribute?

We believe the best learning happens when there is a strong partnership between school and home. These partnerships enrich the atmosphere and culture of our College and we encourage parents and carers to become involved in a variety of ways, including:

  • parent forums
  • college celebrations
  • liturgies
  • fundraising and social justice inititiatives
  • sporting carnivals
  • award ceremonies
Show your children that volunteering is a good thing.

Speak with our friendly staff today and let them know you’re interested in becoming a parent volunteer.

We welcome the contribution volunteers make to the life of our school.

As part of our commitment to keeping students safe, all volunteers in schools are required to complete the building child safe communities undertaking form and child protection training module before volunteering.
