History / About

Welcome to Prendiville Catholic College.

Since 1986

Serve | Lead | Inspire.

Since opening in February 1986, Prendiville Catholic College has established a reputation as an inclusive, safe, nurturing and challenging college within a faith-based environment.

We are proudly Catholic and our spirituality is the foundation of all learnings. We believe in ‘faith in action’ and, in doing so, we share the wisdoms, behaviours and points of view held within the Catholic faith through everything we do.

Christ-Centred, Child-Focused

We are a 6 stream, Catholic co-educational school with students from Years 7 -12. Our students thrive in our positive and attractive learning environment with the support of our highly qualified staff and excellent facilities. The original College motto, The Lord is our Shepherd, reflects our strong emphasis on pastoral care and our focus on the growth of every student.

Our College campus is set in a pleasant coastal setting. It has modern facilities which are continually developed to ensure our students are educated within the best physical environment possible.

Our College provides opportunities for students to learn and grow in a variety of settings so that they may become active and productive participants in society. We provide a variety of alternative educational settings and pathways to tertiary education. We nurture our students to show mercy to others, promote justice and serve those in need. Our contemporary Catholic environment is one that recognises the signs of the times.

Redmond Garrett Prendiville (11 September 1900 in Ireland – 28 June 1968 in Perth, Western Australia) was the fifth bishop and second Roman Catholic Archbishop of the Perth Archdiocese.  In 1933, Prendiville was reputedly the youngest-ever Catholic archbishop. Read more: Wikipedia
