Once a St Catherine’s girl, always a St Catherine’s girl.
Our Old Girls’ Union was established in 1898. When you graduate, we celebrate you as our alumni and you form an integral part of our school community. At St Catherine's we place a high value on our generational connections.
The Jane Barker Luncheon honours our Old Girls who graduated 50 years ago or more. Year 4 students welcome the ladies back to school and help set the tables for lunch. Many stories and historical aspects of the school are explored when these two student groups come together.
Keep in touch
We would love to hear from you
