St Catherine’s Catholic College, Singleton Crest

Principal's Welcome

St Catherine’s Catholic College is a co-educational school offering a comprehensive curriculum for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Nestled in the beautiful Hunter Valley, St Catherine’s has a proud history of excellence and achievements in academic, sporting and cultural pursuits and offers a seamless transition for your child’s educational journey.

St Catherine’s is committed to providing high quality Catholic education. We are a community that strives for excellence in all aspects of schooling, catering for the learning needs of each student. We strive for a high level of achievement for all learners and expect all students to be engaged, challenged and experience success in their learning. The staff at St Catherine’s are deeply committed to effective and contemporary teaching pedagogy and differentiating for the needs of each student.

St Catherine’s is more than a school committed to academic excellence, it is a Catholic school that embraces the teachings of Jesus and Gospel values. At St Catherine’s, we nurture the spiritual growth of the staff and students to develop an understanding about oneself and one’s neighbour and encourage responsible stewardship of all creation.

As we strive for excellence in the classroom and beyond, St Catherine’s Catholic College continues to provide quality learning through cultural, curriculum and community endeavours, with Pastoral Care being a key component of St Catherine’s. We promote and nurture a passion for life long learning and develop social conscience through acts of justice, mercy, tolerance and respect.

St Catherine’s strives to deliver a holistic education that creates a dynamic balance of mind, body and spirit. We are attentive to the wisdom of our Patron, Saint Catherine of Siena. Her quote “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire" guides our actions and decisions. We respect the Mercy heritage that brought St Catherine’s to fruition and bring contemporary theology to further develop the charism of the College so that we are resilient and reflective community members that make informed decisions to make a difference in our community.

We accept and encourage the unique creativity of each person and provide an environment that develops a sense of belonging, cooperation and caring within our College community.

As a past pupil, early career teacher, parent and now Principal of St Catherine’s, my experiences in and of this community have been extremely positive and I commend St Catherine’s to you most sincerely.    

On behalf of the staff of St Catherine’s Catholic College, Singleton, I extend to you a very warm welcome to our school community.
