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>
