Happy 161st birthday St Catherine's!

​As the first Anglican independent girl's school established in Australia, each birthday for our lovely old school is an important milestone. On Tuesday we celebrated St Catherine's 161st Foundation Day. A special assembly was held for K-12, where the girls were inspired to hear from Zoe Durand (OG 2000) who has the amazing dual career of family lawyer and internationally acclaimed artist. Zoe's advice to the girls in a nutshell was to work hard, always maintain a sense of curiosity in life and stay in touch with your school friends - they will help you feel grounded and valued as life moves forward. 

After the speeches came a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to St Catherine's, with the candles on the cake blown out jointly by Head Girl, ​Matilda Hunt​ and one of our gorgeous kindy girls, Lillian Trennery - such a special moment.
