​​​​​the gift of education

Generations of parents, friends and supporters have contributed to St Catherine's over its long and vibrant history. This tradition of giving has been a wonderful reflection of our strong school community.​

The Faith Patterson Scholarship 

During 2015 and following the passing of former Headmistress Miss Faith Patterson AM, the St Catherine's Foundation launched an appeal to raise funds for the Faith Patterson Scholarship in her memory. Your gift to this fund will help build a means-tested endowment to enable future students to attend St Catherine's.

ndigenous Education Scholarship Program​

St Catherine's School has a long history of educating young women from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities with Indigenous culture playing an important role in the fabric of the school since the 1970s. In partnership with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF), the Go Foundation and the Moriarty Foundation, the St Catherine’s Indigenous Scholarship Program offers academic excellence and a wide array of extra-curricular experiences that build character and help to prepare our students to make their mark in the world. 

At school, we recognise the importance of our Indigenous history and ongoing collaboration through celebrations such as National Reconciliation week and NAIDOC day. Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students play a significant role in these events, which are a highlight for our whole community.

With your help, we are committed to growing the Indigenous Scholarship Program for future generations of Indigenous students.

Help us build! 

2022 brings a focus on additional classrooms. As our education offerings continue to grow and with the school's commitment to a broad, differentiated curriculum and small class sizes we need more classrooms.

The Fielding Fellowship

Remembering the school in your will is a way of expressing the connection you have with St Catherine's, making a valuable contribution to the future of the school. The Fielding Fellowship has been established to honour and recognise members of our community for their generosity and foresight in making a bequest to the school.  


Good sports
St Catherine's has registered the St Catherine's School Sports Fund with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF). A donation to St Catherine's sport will support increased participation and opportunities for our students to complement their academic achievements and help them reach their full potential. To provide the girls with the best possible training, equipment and facilities St Catherine's aquaticsrowing and tennis and general sports including dance have their own funds.

Thank you!

To the many families who choose to maintain an annual commitment to St Catherine's, we can't thank you enough. If you would like to know more or to make a gift to St Catherine's, please contact Mrs Marilyn Rickard, Head of Community Relations.
