At St Catherine's we value commitment to a shared educational vision of working collaboratively at every opportunity. Together we foster an environment where learning is valued, promoted and celebrated. We provide an environment that inspires learning through innovative and creative teaching pedagogy catering for all students. In this way, we believe every student is capable of successful learning and they will develop the skills to take responsibility for their learning. We promote a culture of inquiry and value the importance of positive and caring relationships. At St Catherine's we view children as active citizens and are observant of their voice in our daily interactions. Engaging with children's voices and involving the children in the learning process, deepens their experiences as it becomes child centred and relevant to their experiences.
St Catherine’s Walk for Water
Last month Annie O’Neill from Catholic Charities attended the St Catherine’s Walk for Water event held in their school grounds in Stirling.
The event was run to raise money for Catholic Charities and the Morogoro Diocese in Tanzania.
The students were sponsored for how many laps of the school they could walk holding a container of water for a set period of time. The day began with a Mass for the whole school followed by the Walk for Water and finishing with a BBQ.
All the students had a wonderful time especially when they got to enjoy the BBQ prepared by APRIM Jamie Mulcahy and Principal Jason Mittiga.*see photos below. They raised a fantastic $2255.00 for Catholic Charities!
On Friday, August 18, St Catherine's School at Stirling also celebrated their 70th birthday when members of the school community, past principals, students, teachers, Bridgewater parishioners and Dominican Sisters gathered.
(The donations amount includes money also raised in 2015).
