St Catherine’s prides itself on its close-knit School community. Past parents are an important part of our School life. The Past Parents’ and Families’ Network (PPFN) aims to reconnect with past parents and enable the friendships and engagement with St Catherine’s to continue.

The Past Parents’ and Families’ Network (PPFN) aims to maintain the connection with St Catherine’s with this special group, and to enable them to stay connected with each other and with the School.

The PPFN host a number of informal social evenings throughout the year which are usually held at a past parents home, are free of charge, and on a ‘bring a plate/bottle’ basis.

Membership to the PPFN is automatic for any parents whose child has completed their studies at St Catherine’s.
