Old uniform at Penola Catholic College

Penola Catholic College launched their current school uniform in 2013. The previous uniform looked much the same but with the girls wearing tartan check instead of stripes. This uniform dated back to the creation of the college in 1995, through the amalgamation of three Catholic secondary schools – Therry College, Geoghegan College and Sancta Sophia College.

New uniform at Penola Catholic College

In 2013 Penola Catholic College unveiled an updated school uniform featuring new summer dress and winter skirt patters. Students changed to the new uniform during a four year transition period.

Changes to Uniform in 2016 for Year 10

As a result of significant feedback from parents we have decided to delay the introduction of the new winter uniform for Year 10 Students next year.

Given the cost associated with purchasing a laptop as well as the new uniform, we are asking Year 10 parents to purchase the new summer uniform for the beginning of 2016 and many parents have already done this.

Our school photographs take place early in Term 1, 2016 so it would be great to have all students in the new uniform.

For Years 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 all items of the new uniform are to be purchased for next year. A reminder that the
tracksuit pants are optional; the Penola bathers are optional (navy blue one piece bathers as alternative) and Year 10 students can purchase the navy blazer (optional) if they wish.

One of the initiatives that the PSC set during 2015 was to hold a uniform drive, donating items of uniform that are being phased out. As all families should know, the new Penola uniform will be required as of January 2016, and we, the student leadership team, believe that sending our uniforms, would benefit the needy and disadvantaged in our society.

Therefore, it is an opportune time to send our old uniforms to the Nepalese community to assist in their time of crisis after the two devastating earthquakes earlier this year. The PSC is asking for your assistance in supporting this initiative by donating the items of uniform that students have either grown out of, or are simply in good condition but no longer required/current for 2016.

The items that may be donated:
– Maroon Blazers
– Navy Blazers
– Old ties
– Boys trousers (without the embroidered PCC)
– Shorts (without the embroidered PCC)
– Old girls dresses
– Plain maroon sports t-shirts
– Sports track pants and shorts (plain navy without the burgundy piping)
– Sports rugby jumper (with tri colour horizontal stripes)
– Any other outgrown Penola uniform that would instead be thrown away

Before donating, please ensure that the items you wish to donate are not required for 2016 and have been superseded by the new uniform.

We understand that this initiative has been introduced quite early, however with
Term 3 coming to a close, many girls’ winter skirts particularly will no longer be
appropriate for 2016

From the first school day of 2016, all students must wear the new style uniform. The old style uniform is no longer accepted to be sold by the Second Hand Uniform Shop.

At this stage the following changes have been suggested to the current uniform. Girls Summer Uniform to include navy shorts and the white short sleeved shirt. We are also looking at the optional introduction of navy skins to the Sports uniform. As many of you will have noticed, our students are reluctant to wear the navy track pants so navy skins worn underneath the existing sports uniform may enable students to stay warmer in the winter months.
