St Catherine's School

Toorak VIC, Melbourne City Central

Message from the Principal

The fixed anchor points of our school are the strong values we embed within a St Catherine’s education; empathy, curiosity, perseverance and integrity. St Catherine’s women intrinsically understand they have a role to play in bringing about positive change. It is this knowledge that enables our students to use their skills and talents to the maximum benefit of the community of which we are a part.

At St Catherine’s, we have magnificent teachers who are great activators of change for girls. They enhance our students’ learning immensely, guiding the girls to be fearless, teaching them to harness the storm of adolescence and encouraging them to question and believe in themselves and their abilities. We believe in building a strong foundation of resilience, self-confidence and emotional intelligence in young girls. Strong, resilient girls become strong, resilient women, competent to handle not only the joys, but the challenges that life will throw at them. 

Our innovative curriculum encourages both collaborative and individual learning through an extensive range of subjects and co-curricular activities, equipping our students with the necessary skills to flourish in careers and industries not even imagined. Our students are being taken beyond the textbook through state-of-the-art technology to learn complex and unforgettable lessons firsthand.

Please take the time to browse our website and I encourage you to contact our registrar to arrange an appointment to view the grounds or book for an open morning. I look forward to meeting your family.

    St Catherine’s is a very special school. It has a big heart and I love everything it stands for. Because of its size and strong sense of community, nobody is overlooked or left behind. The teachers are generous with their time and always approachable. St Catherine’s is warm and relaxed, despite its strong focus on academic excellence. It can be formal but only when appropriate and necessary. It is very inclusive. One of the fundamental aspects of our School is people really care about each other.

    The opportunities are endless. Sport has been an enormous part of my journey at School and has inspired me to work hard, strive for excellence and believe in myself. We are always encouraged to try something new and to be unafraid of failure. The very strong message we are given is that it is the process, rather than the result, that is important. Ironically, the girls always seem to achieve extraordinary things! That is the truly wonderful part of St Catherine’s spirit.
