the gift of education
Generations of parents, friends and supporters have contributed to St Catherine's over its long and vibrant history. This tradition of giving has been a wonderful reflection of our strong school community.
Help us build!
Our students live in a world that's changing faster than ever before and, as a school and a community, it is our duty to make sure they are equipped to face the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We cannot achieve this by standing still.
The Faith Patterson Scholarship
During 2015 and following the passing of former Headmistress Miss Faith Patterson AM, the St Catherine's Foundation launched an appeal to raise funds for the
Faith Patterson Scholarship in her memory. Your gift to this fund will help build a means-tested endowment to enable future students to attend St Catherine's.
Indigenous Education Scholarship Program
In partnership with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF), the Go Foundation and the Moriarty Foundation, St Catherine’s has been offering educational opportunities for young women from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities since the 1970s. Your contribution helps our students experience both academic excellence and a wide array of extra-curricular experiences that build character and help to prepare them to make their mark in the world. With your help, we are committed to growing this program for future generations of Indigenous students.
The Fielding Fellowship
Remembering the school in your will is a way of expressing the connection you have with St Catherine's, making a valuable contribution to the future of the school. The Fielding Fellowship has been established to honour and recognise members of our community for their generosity and foresight in making a bequest to the school.
St Catherine's has registered the St Catherine's School Sports Fund with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF). A donation to St Catherine's sport will support increased participation and opportunities for our students to complement their academic achievements and help them reach their full potential. To provide the girls with the best possible training, equipment and facilities St Catherine's
tennis and rowing have their own funds.
To the many families who choose to maintain an annual commitment to St Catherine's, we can't thank you enough. If you would like to know more or to make a gift to St Catherine's, please contact Mrs Marilyn Rickard, Head of Community Relations.
