Catholic Education South Australia


At St Catherine’s we guide our learners to be self-managed, innovative and critical thinkers who have a strong sense of who they are and their responsibility to their world.

We value the skills necessary to build meaningful relationships and to be connected to learning. We encourage our learners to question, explore and discover so they actively contribute to a more just, peaceful and forgiving society.
