St Catherine's Covenant was launched in October, 2004. The development of our Covenant was the first initiative of the newly formed Parish School Board and involved a year-long process of consultation throu​ghout the school and parish community, to discern and document what was, and what continues to be, important to our community.​​

Celebration of Learning in 4 Orangehttp://www.stcatherinescps.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/celebrationoflearning.aspxCelebration of Learning in 4 Orange<p style="text-align:justify;">In Year 4 this term we have been given the opportunity to expand our world knowledge and learn about the significance of environments, examining how people's need and want of resources over time has affected peoples, societies and environments. Specifically, we are studying life for Indigenous Australians pre- and post-contact. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">During our studies we focused on the connection Indigenous Australian's have with the land. We learnt about Totems. One of the ways Aboriginal people forge this connection to the land is through Totems. A totem is a natural object, plant or animal that is inherited by members of a clan or family as their spiritual emblem. Totems define peoples' roles and responsibilities, and their relationships with each other and creation.</p><p style="text-align:left;">The students participated in self-reflection in order to identify a totem of their own, which they believe they could have a deeper connection. The students were then asked to highlight a characteristic which demonstrates this connection. Our finished product follows and can be viewed on our classroom door.<img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Totem2%20(Small)%20(1).jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:320px;" /><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Totem1%20(Small).jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:289px;" /></p><p><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Totem3%20(Small).jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:271px;" /><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Totem4%20(Small).jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:359px;" /><br> </p>

St Catherine's 'Shares the Love' for Townsvillehttp://www.stcatherinescps.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/stcatherinessharesthelovefortownsville.aspxSt Catherine's 'Shares the Love' for Townsville<p>​</p><p>On Thursday, 14 February, Brisbane Catholic Education schools 'Shared the Love' by raising funds for Townsville flood victims. At St Catherine's, we chose a 'free dress' day option with a theme of going TROPPO for a gold coin donation. </p><p>Thanks to everyone for supporting this endeavour to raise funds to support our schools affected by flood in Townsville. The theme of going TROPPO came about because Townsville is in tropical north Queensland. Staff and students went all out with their outfits! It all helped to make the day a bit of fun. In all we raised over $1000 for flood relief. What a great effort for one small contribution from each child.</p><p>Our Executive Director Pam Betts let those attending the Principal Leadership Forum (held in late February) know how tantalizingly close we are to reaching the $85,000 (currently at $83, 841.20) .</p><p>Well done everyone! </p><p><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/SAM_3673b%20(Small).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:227px;" /><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/SAM_3694a%20(Small).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:357px;" /><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/SAM_3703%20(Small).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:240px;" /><img class="ms-rteImage-1" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/SAM_3722%20(Small).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:240px;" /> </p><p> </p>
