End of Year Update From The Campaign Team

As another year nears its end and Christmas banners take their early place, the Her Future Begins Here Campaign Team sincerely thank you for your significant and generous support.

It has been particularly pleasing to receive almost 200 gifts in support for the redevelopment of the Junior School and the major upgrade to the Edna Holmes Centre for Science from across our community – parents, alumni and staff. Every gift of any size has helped us become very close to our fundraising target of $3 million.

During Term 3 Principal, Mrs Michelle Carroll unveiled the design for the Village Green in the new Junior School. This new vibrant space will be a place not just for our students to play, run or kick a football, but also a key community venue for our major events such the Christmas Fair and Twilight Picnic.

It was fantastic to see construction begin on the upgrade to the Edna Holmes Centre for Science during the last School term break – download the brochure for more information. The project is deliberately staged to avoid disruption to the School’s teaching program and the timeline includes:

  1. Two General Science labs completed and open for students by February 2018
  2. Physics and Psychology labs completed and open to students by August 2018
  3. Biology and Chemistry labs completed and open to students by February 2019

Thank you again for supporting the School’s vision and most importantly current and future generations of St Catherine’s girls.

Mrs Sally Joubert and Mr Cameron Bertalli
