Holistic Education

Penrith Anglican College provides a holistic education, which educates and nurtures each child’s talents in an imaginative, purposeful, caring and Christ centred learning environment.

Our educational programs are designed to allow children to learn at their own pace, with students grouped based on ability for literacy and numeracy across all grades from Kindergarten to Year 12.

For children with interests and gifts in creative arts, we have dedicated staff teaching Visual Arts, Drama and Music. Furthermore all students in Years 3 – 6 learn a musical instrument as part of the Music curriculum.

Sports minded students, are offered opportunities to participate both individually and as a team through our comprehensive PDHPE program as well as representing the College through numerous school sporting associations memberships.

In response to our belief that students are part of the global community we offer our Year 11 and 12 students, we offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) or the Higher School Certificate (HSC).

To find out how PAC can provide a holistic education for your child, please contact our Registrar via registrar@pac.nsw.edu.au or visit www.pac.nsw.edu.au.

We look forward to welcoming you to the PAC community.

Pastoral Care

At Penrith Anglican we endeavour to model the Christian faith and students are encouraged to adopt Christian values. All students attend weekly Chapel services and are involved in our Divinity Program. Penrith Anglican emphasises care for each student and the development of each student's God given talents. Pastoral care groups meet each week in the Senior School. All students in Years 11 and 12 take part in our Tabitha Service Program.

The College teaches that there are absolutes in life, that there is right and wrong, trust and false, and that there are consequences for decisions that are made.
