Stories From the Archives – 1979 – Mathematics at St Catherine’s
Our School’s incredible history has many wonderful stories that our community are deeply connected to. This year as we celebrate our 125th Year Anniversary, we invite you each week to step back in time through some of the many stories that make up the life at St Catherine’s School.
“The battle between girls and Mathematics has been a vital element in the history of the war women have waged for their own liberation. In their fight for equality, women have realised that the mastery of Mathematics has been essential if they are to enter the male-dominated professions. At St. Catherine’s, where the girls are well aware of such issues, there is a strong interest in Mathematics, with an increasing number studying the subject to Year 12.”
