Prendiville Fitness Challenge

The Prendiville Fitness Challenge improved the overall health & wellbeing of the College staff, and by extension, the College community. The 9-week challenge encouraged participants from all areas of the College to work as teams to achieve an improved level of physical fitness. As the challenge went on, physical health improved, interpersonal relationships improved, communication improved and the Community began to flourish. Most significantly, 94% of participants identified an improvement in the morale of the College. The Prendiville Fitness Challenge directly improved the wellbeing of the College staff, and ensured a very challenging year ended on a triumphant high.


Prendi SummerFest 3.5 – A Celebration of Community

On the 19th of March 2021, Prendiville Catholic College came together to celebrate 35 years as a school community with Prendi SummerFest 3.5. We had just been through a difficult year in 2020 with events cancelled, milestones not marked and precious days of learning lost.

Prendi SummerFest is more than just a fun day for our students. It is a whole school celebration of community. Friendships are strengthened and memories are made that will carry with our students beyond the school gates.


Yirri Yaarkin Program

The Yirri Yaarkin (Standing Tall) Program was developed and designed to meet the unique and diverse needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and families within our College community – to walk with them from year 7 to graduation and beyond. The Program is based on valuing what the Aboriginal students and their families bring to our College community – their rich culture and ancient history.

The success of the Program has delivered obvious results towards the Yirri Yaarkin students’ wellbeing. Happy students equal engaged learners.
