In preparation for your daughter’s transition into St Catherine’s Junior School in 2021, our orientation program provides students with an environment whereby they develop a sense of connectedness and belonging prior to commencing in 2021. It is undoubtedly, a unique and extraordinary period in our lifetime and we understand the worry and unease you must currently be experiencing. We recognise that we are all navigating a fluid environment and due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation we have transformed our Orientation program to ensure we continue to exercise an abundance of caution.

Prep Orientation Program

Commencing Prep signifies a time of growth and tremendous possibilities, a time to seize every opportunity. In preparation for your daughter’s transition into St Catherine’s Junior School in 2021, our Orientation Program aims to provide a seamless transition for your daughter that delivers a progressive learning experience fostering their education, growth and creativity.

We thank you for attending our Prep Information webinars and look forward to a time that we can welcome you and your daughter on to campus once again.

Storytime with Miss Taylor

Reading and storytelling with your child promotes brain development and imagination, teaches your child about language and emotions, and strengthens your relationship. Miss Taylor is a wonderful storyteller and we invite you to create some special time to share in the delight of story-time with your daughter, because anytime is a good time for a story!
