Become a Member

Our Foundation is a society of bold and loyal donors daring to give our girls every chance to shine. 

At no other time than in this rapidly evolving and uncertain world has being a giving society mattered.

Each year, since 1996, we welcome new members to join us in the pursuit of the best possible facilities, equipment and programs for the young women responsible for our future. 

Income from tuition fees covers the operating and general costs only. Philanthropy supports innovation and builds infrastructure and program capacity in a distinct way. By becoming a member of our School Foundation, you will help transform the educational experience and lives of generations of young girls and women.

St Catherine’s Circle Member, Lisa Nicoll-Cooke

Women from my family have been attending St Catherine's for nearly one hundred years and I would like this sense of family connection to continue for other School families. I feel so strongly about family connection that I am willing to support this financially.

Learning From Participation and Generosity

We are really pleased to support the St Catherine’s Building Fund, in particular the development of the Blackbox Theatre, which will play a vital role in our girls’ School life. We intend to shape them to become women of the future.

Reducing the Urban and Rural Divide
