Selecting the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions and long-term investments a parent will ever make. At Penrhos College our aim is to educate girls for life. Our students are encouraged to become lifelong learners, active participants and resilient, accomplished creators of tomorrow's history.
By choosing Penrhos as the school for your daughter you are also opening other doors - to a safe, progressive, caring Christian environment where outstanding facilities, expert teaching and a multitude of co-curricular activities provide her with opportunities to stretch herself, discover her talents and grow into a young woman of whom you will be proud.
A note from Principal Mrs Meg Melville: "Penrhos College is committed to providing an education that honours our traditions and Christian Values in a climate of change. Our students today think and operate differently to the students of years gone by. We must help them to develop strong coping mechanisms, transferable life skills and strategies which equip them to problem-solve capably.
Our focus is on nurturing and inspiring the heart, mind, body and spirit of each girl to enable her to explore her potential, find her niche and – ultimately – to move her into adult life with a confidence that will allow her to navigate all of life’s opportunities and challenges successfully.
Penrhos College is fortunate to be resourced so that our inspirational staff and programs are well placed to support your daughter as she journeys through the Junior and Secondary Schools. To my mind, the other vital ingredient is an open, honest and positive relationship between the College and the family of each girl, to ensure that we are all working together and in her best interests.
My hope is that each Penrhos student will understand the significance of all that she has learned during her time at the College and that she will take this gift with her as she graduates from Year 12 and moves into adult life."
