Principal's message

Georges River College Penshurst Campus is a school where quality teaching and learning thrives.  Our teachers are passionate and enthusiastic. They are dedicated to education in a middle school context.

GRC Penshurst Campus has a reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and student achievement. We are a school of first choice in our community. At our school students have the opportunity to learn in a caring, structured and supportive environment that caters to their specific needs, and particularly to the needs of young people in a middle school context. 

This is a unique environment where students are supported to take risks as learners, to see how high they can achieve and to see how far they can grow. Like the tree that symbolises our College, our students are supported to grow, to branch out, and to aim and reach high.

We are an inclusive and caring school community. At GRC Penshurst Campus we have high standards and high expectations. We support each individual student to ensure they can be the best they can be. Our teachers are university trained and engage in ongoing professional learning to continue to develop their teaching practice to ensure our students are engaged and excited about their learning.  Our teachers are committed to the education and well-being of the students in their care.

Our students graduate Year 10 in a unique and unrivalled position. Our students have the opportunity to transition to our Senior Campus at Oatley where they have the choice of an amazing array and breadth of subjects and the ability to pick a tailored senior pathway that is designed just for them.

Our school prides itself on its positive culture of challenge and support, enabling effective teaching that promotes enthusiastic, independent learners dedicated to lifelong learning. The teaching staff are committed to the learning and growth of young people guided by fairness, ethical practice, democratic values and lifelong learning. We work in partnership with our community to decide how to best meet student needs.

The opportunities available to students at our school are broad and dynamic. Students have the opportunity to be involved in Student Leadership, International Cultural Exchanges, Higj Potential and Gifted Education Programs, Sport, Debating as well as cross Campus opportunities in the Creative and Performing Arts. These are to name but a few.

Georges River College Penshurst Campus is a dynamic learning community where students come first. We have a tradition of academic excellence and strong student support structures to ensure the individual learning needs of each student are met. Our students graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in an ever changing world. We create a climate of student success to ensure our students graduate empowered and equipped with the necessary 21stCentury learning skills that will propel them into success in the senior school and beyond.
