Welcome to Hennessy Catholic College

Welcome to Hennessy Catholic College, a comprehensive Catholic school for students from Years 7 - 12. Hennessy is a regional college proudly catering for students from Young, Boorowa, Cootamundra, Harden-Murrumburrah, Grenfell and surrounding towns.

Our Vision is to ‘Live Spiritually, Learn Dynamically and Act Justly … inspiring futures of hope’. This vision is very visible for all students and guides everything we do. As a Catholic school in the traditions of Nano Nagle and Edmund Rice, we strive to live lives modelled on their examples. 

I strongly believe in the mantra that ‘country kids can do anything’. There is much evidence of this in the vast range of career paths taken by our ex-students. We promote academic excellence and the notion that every student should be challenged to be the best they can be. The College offers a wide range of sporting and extra-curricular opportunities and each student is encouraged to follow their own passion and to develop their unique talents.

It is a great pleasure to work with our students and a privilege to be part of their life journey. We aim to develop faith-filled, hope-filled, confident citizens who will make a real difference in our ever-changing and challenging world.

This website offers an appreciation of our College, its history and its ethos. I invite you to explore what makes Hennessy such a wonderful school. Please consider attending our annual Open Day held in May each year or contact the school at any time for a tour. We are very proud of our College and love to welcome new students into our community.  

Please enjoy learning more about our College as you explore our website.
