Academic care at St Catherine’s is taking an evolutionary step forward next year
with the introduction of two new houses.
The announcement was made at assembly this morning and the girls will be able
to nominate themselves to become Foundation members. The move is part of an
ongoing process of enhancing our Academic Care program. Currently, students from
K-12 belong to one of five houses and within each house, the mentor groups that
underpin our Academic Care program are formed for each year group.
Headmistress Dr Julie Townsend said the girls remained in the same mentor
group from Year 7-12 which builds a wonderful relationship with their peers.
“The new houses will mean our mentor and house groups will become smaller and
will allow mentors to gain an even deeper understanding of the needs of each
The new houses will be called ‘Patterson’ and ‘Phillips’, named after past
headmistresses and girls selected to become members will be invited to
design the house crest and take part in house elections in Term 3.
Dr Townsend said, “The addition of the two new houses is a significant
change for St Catherine’s School and we look forward to exciting times ahead.”
