Growing & Nurturing Initiatives

As part of our sustainability program, St Catherine’s students participate in an extensive range of ecological sustainability initiatives on our expansive school grounds. 

Some of our initiatives include:

  • Cluckingham Palace – chicken coup with eggs being sold to the school community
  • Aquaculture & Aquaponics maintained by students and linked to Australian Curriculum
  • Permaculture orchard, and vegetable and herb gardens where produce is shared with the school community through the garden market
  • Bat and bird boxes
  • Creation of butterfly gardens
  • Worm farms
  • Wetlands for revegetation of local flora species and increasing habitat for local fauna
  • Native gardens for mini-beast ecosystems
  • Participation in captive breeding – Program of Endangered Southern Purple Spotted Gudgeon
