Eleanor is a diligent, high achieving student with great leadership potential and a talent for writing. Eleanor is dedicated to her studies and constantly strives to improve. As a result she has received an achievement award every year since she joined St Catherine's in Year 5.

Eleanor's talent as a writer has been recognised too. She was runner up for both the Sydney Morning Herald Young Writers Competition and the Whitlam Institute's prestigious 'What Matters?' Competition.

She is an academic high flyer and is involved in a range of extra-curricular activities such as Da Vinci Decathlon, hockey, dance, indoor soccer and music. Eleanor loves to challenge herself and she has been developing her skills in leadership and public speaking. She is part of the public speaking group, debating, mock UN, Mock Trial and the Student Networking Alliance, where she meets with other students to discuss issues relevant to students.
 
Service education is a key part of a St Catherine's education as it teaches girls about world issues and offers them a way to make a difference. Eleanor has attended the World Vision leadership conference where she learnt how to utilise her passion and leadership skills as a 40 Hour Famine Leader. She was instrumental in raising over $26,000 for World Vision in 2014.

Eleanor said "The thing I enjoy most about St Catherine's is the community of  girls and inspiring teachers. I have made so many strong bonds and because of these close relationships, I feel extremely comfortable going to school each day. It is the kind and caring community that to me, makes St Catherine's the amazing school it is."
