Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Padua College website, where I hope that you will gain a sense of the comprehensive and enriching courses of study and co-curricular activities available to our students.

At Padua College we offer an education for life, one that values mind, body and spirit. As a Catholic school community, we offer our students several very important challenges - to develop a deeper awareness of themselves, of God and of others and to live lives more fully based on the values taught by Jesus.

Excellent staff, facilities, grounds and resources at each of our three campuses provide ample opportunity for students to excel in areas of curriculum, leadership and the sporting, cultural and religious life of the College.

I hope that each student will consciously strive to develop an enthusiasm for learning and for deriving from each school day the very best results according to his or her potential. All members of our community are committed to the total development of each individual student, and to assist them in using their God-given talents and gifts in achieving their goals.

I welcome your enquiry concerning Padua College and I encourage you to seek further information by contacting us. Enrolment enquiries can be made via email on:

While we are currently unable to offer guided tours, to gain a fuller insight into the Padua College community, virtual tours of each campus are accessible on our website here: School Tours
