From the Principal

Principal Update – Much to celebrate in the ...

Our focus this year on improving voice, agency and leadership represents different aspects of student empowerment. Each aspect relies on a student’s belief that they are both supported and empowered, in ways that help them to develop their knowledge.


125 Year Anniversary

Early Learning Centre

ELC Update – Learning in the ELC

It has been wonderful to observe the learning taking place in classrooms this term, and the discussion, debate and laughter that can be heard as you move through Campbell House. The children are offered such rich opportunities each and every day.


Junior School

Year 4 – Early Explorers Wax Museum

This term, Year 4 have enjoyed researching about early explorers from the past 600 years of history. Their inquiry has taken them on a journey of learning about where and why their explorer travelled, and the impact they had on history.


Senior School

Sport Update

While our Term 2 Sports season didn’t finish in the way we wanted, there is much to be proud of. Again, the St Catherine’s athletes have proved that they are capable of great teamwork and achieving success.


Year 7 Update – A time for reflection

The importance of relaxation and quiet time is critical for reflection. It is through this that students are able to develop skills that build perspective, empathy and gratitude which engender a state of ‘it feels good to do good’.
