The Foundation Board oversees the School’s philanthropic program and makes recommendations to the School Council to encourage and recognise the School community’s philanthropic spirit and support.

The Board brings together the skills and expertise of our wider community, including current and past parents and alumnae, to strategically develop philanthropic programs for St Catherine’s with students at the centre of all its endeavours.
