Boarding at St Catherine's School

Boarding at St Catherine’s School gives girls the opportunity to achieve a balanced education in a safe and comfortable living environment. We talk of our Boarding House, Illawarra, as a home because this is the atmosphere we strive to achieve — a place where our students feel supported academically, socially and emotionally.

The National Trust-listed Boarding House, Illawarra, combines the wonderful charm and design features of a 19th century mansion with the technological needs of the modern generation. Our boarders’ bedrooms have great character, each containing a decorative fireplace, a personal wardrobe with lockable drawer, a pinboard, a chest of drawers and access to wireless internet. Illawarra also has a number of large rooms, including a study room, dining room and two lounge rooms, allowing our students individual space outside of their bedrooms.

At St Catherine’s School each boarder is an individual, and one of the key tasks of our boarding staff is to understand the particular needs of each girl. Chosen for their caring attitudes and warm personalities, our boarding staff are involved in the daily pastoral care of our boarders and play a key role in supporting their academic progress.

At St Catherine’s, orientation activities are organised to enable all boarders to get to know each other, and they are encouraged to involve themselves in all aspects of the co-curricular life of the school. When girls return to Illawarra after school, year levels are forgotten because the girls are all just part of the St Catherine’s boarding family.

For more information on boarding at St Catherine’s please contact our Registrar, Amanda Bennett, on (03) 9828 3071 or email admissions@stcatherines.net.au
