Principal's Welcome


Welcome to St Catherine's School

Thank you for considering our beautiful school set within the lush Adelaide Hills.

St Catherine’s School is a small parish school with a big heart. Our small and connected community is welcoming and inclusive. It’s a place where students, families and staff enjoy a strong sense of belonging and togetherness.

We welcome students from Reception to Year 6, along with playgroup and a transition program into Reception.

St Catherine’s School is inspired by the Dominican tradition. Our Catholic faith is interwoven into who we are as a school community and it strongly underpins our school values of Respect, Commitment, Sustainability, Honesty and Compassion. Informed by our faith, our values are embedded in all we do.

We believe knowing each child personally helps students better achieve academic success. This can only be achieved in a small and connected environment such as St Catherine’s School.

Our teachers design and deliver an outstanding academic curriculum and extracurricular activities to unlock each child’s potential. We are able to support your child in the journey of understanding themselves as learners, and in developing new skills and attributes.

Our supportive and inclusive community also nurtures student wellbeing thereby inspiring them to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Having recently enhanced student learning spaces through new construction, our 10 year building master plan ensures we remain committed to providing the optimal learning space for students; both now and in the future.

I look forward to meeting with you to further discuss your child’s education at St Catherine’s School and welcoming you into our small and warm community.
