The Lockdown Drill we had planned today has been postponed, due to the Year 13 Retreat times being changed. We will advise you of the new date in the SCC Newsletter.


The St Catherine’s College PTA will hold its Annual General Meeting at 7pm on Thursday 11 November at Park Kitchen in Miramar. Nibbles will be provided. You are warmly invited, please RSVP to stcatherinescollegepta@gmail.com for catering purposes by Monday 8th November.

Although the PTA has a strong committee going into 2022 nominations are welcomed for all officeholder positions. We are especially seeking a new Chairperson or two co-Chair to lead the committee in 2022.

The PTA meets twice a term to organise fundraising events, gardening bees and support events at the college, for example prize-giving and orientation evenings. The PTA is a great way to be involved in the college - meeting other parents and getting to know the teachers is a great way to enhance the overall feeling of belonging to our beautiful college community.

Please send nominations to stcatherinescollegepta@gmail.com or call Cecilia Ross on 027 616 1724 if you would like more information.

Wishing you a wonderful day.
