History:

Penola Catholic College was formed as a result of the amalgamation of Sancta Sophia College, Therry College and Geoghegan College in 1995. The Josephite charism is the source of our spirituality. The teachings and example set by Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop are embedded in all that we do.

The College was established to provide those in the northern suburbs with a Catholic co-education. Our community includes the Parishes of Corpus Christi – Glenroy, St Dominic’s – Broadmeadows, Holy Child – Dallas & Meadow Heights, Good Shepherd – Gladstone Park and St Carlo Borromeo - Greenvale, St Thomas More’s – Hadfield, St Francis de Sales – Oak Park and St Matthew’s – North Fawkner.


Description:

Penola Catholic College is a community of students, parents and staff guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ and inspired by the example of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop. Enlightened by the Gospel values of Faith, Love, Hope and Compassion, we strive to provide a holistic education which meets the needs and develops the gifts of each student. As a community we recognise that this is best achieved in a welcoming environment with a commitment to justice, service and collaboration.

Penola Catholic College strives to involve its members in the life of the wider society. Through parish participation, local community activity and appreciation of national and global issues, we endeavour to foster critical awareness, a sense of belonging and a desire to work towards God’s Kingdom of justice and peace.
