independent schools, St Catherine’s uses school fees to pay for teachers, non
teaching staff and operating costs. Through the Foundation, established in
1983, we continue to rely on the generosity of the St Catherine’s community to
help deliver major building projects, provide scholarships and upgrade
several rewarding ways to express your own passion for education and contribute
to the life journey of thousands of St Catherine’s girls now and in the future.
Catherine’s, our aim is to provide a broad, challenging and vibrant education
for our girls. Our students live in a world that is changing faster than ever
before and as a school and a community, it is our duty to make sure they are equipped
to face the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
We cannot achieve
this by standing still.
Many of the
School’s facilities are nearing the end of their practical life and it is our vision
to create a multi-purpose research, performing arts and aquatic centre (RPAC) that
will transform the opportunities available to our girls for generations to
of RPAC commencing midyear, we are asking our community to invest in the future
of our girls. There are a number of ways you can make your mark on St
Catherine’s with a donation to RPAC, whether it be for a commemorative paver, an
auditorium seat, a pool lane, or in honour of our much loved swimming coach
Barry Rodgers a donation to the Learn to Swim pool.
