Nepalese students wearing St Catherine's uniform to go to school or to keep warm
11 March 2019

Warm jumpers, big hearts

St Catherine's school has partnered with the Mitrataa Foundation in Nepal to put some of their retired uniforms to good use.

Have a look at Parbati and Laxmi in their hoodie and pinafore combos. They love them! And Rojina who is being helped by her little brother to button her blazer. She doesn't have a uniform at her school so now she will be wearing this one and she is so proud of it. Pushpa is wearing one of our senior school shirts. She is a Year 12 student and has recently topped all her exams and is studying humanities. Have you noted her stylish French tuck? Just gorgeous.

The Mitrataa Foundation provides education, skills, training and networks so Nepali people can take control of their lives, overcome disadvantage and achieve their dreams.

The amazing response to a call-out for donations just as the school shut down for the summer break demonstrates St Catherine's values in action: giving and service to others, and the sustainable re-use of quality garments for children in need. This is the essence of St Catherine's – a school with a big heart.
