St Catherine’s empowers and nurtures independent and thoughtful young women who are confident of their ability to make a difference in a changing world. They truly are women of the future, ready to embrace all that life offers.
She Who Dares
Our bold dream for St Catherine’s is to empower our girls with the best start in their educational journey. Our reputation as a leader in girls’ education, for well over a century, is based on our readiness to embrace innovation. Our goals are in keeping with our founder’s original aim to prepare students for life; not only through education but also empowering girls to take ownership of their learning through active participation and engagement in School academic and co-curricular programs.
From Music to Sport, overseas exchanges and trips, leadership opportunities, community service initiatives and Outdoor Education, St Catherine’s provides every student the opportunity to play a part in their own personal development and future aspirations.
St Catherine’s sees teaching and learning and the development of wellbeing as parallel, integrated, and complementary processes. Learning and wellbeing are inextricably linked, and our new Senior School model is now defined in two key learning sectors to ensure our students develop a strong sense of wellbeing when they experience success in learning.
At St Catherine’s, we are committed to ensuring each student is able to enquire deeply, respond positively to challenge and change and is ready to lead. Through the development of these skills, we aim to shape women of the future who add value to their community and chosen field of endeavour.
Increasing independence of thought, scholastic self-assuredness, vocational awareness and planning are the hallmarks of learning in the Senior School. Our innovative new hybrid learning model, Independent Learning Tutorials (ILT), for Years 10 and 11 embraces both face-to-face teaching and online delivery. Our senior students are embracing a new way of learning with more independence to control the pace of their learning as well as the flexibility to access Masterclass and Online Tutorials in an asynchronous mode.
