Val­ues un­der­line col­lege ap­proach

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THE Year 12 and Kinder­garten co­horts have be­come a part of St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege for 2017.

While more con­struc­tion is ex­pected for the next two years to cater for stu­dent growth, St Catherine’s is proud to of­fer ed­u­ca­tion for all year groups.

The col­lege con­sists of three cam­puses – Mercy Cam­pus (Prep–Year 3), Loyola Cam­pus (Years 4–6 and Kinder­garten) and Man­resa Cam­pus (Years 7–12) – which has ded­i­cated precincts for each stage of school­ing and stu­dents are pro­vided with an ed­u­ca­tion that fo­cuses on more than aca­demic re­sults.

St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege pri­mary prin­ci­pal Sharyn Bell said the school’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem was based on de­vel­op­ing a broad range of at­tributes.

“Stu­dents are nur­tured to de­velop spir­i­tu­ally, so­cially, emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally in a com­mu­nity that em­braces Catholic val­ues,” she said.

“We pro­vide a bal­anced aca­demic cur­ricu­lum that in­te­grates faith, cul­ture and life.”

The new kinder­garten is a con­tem­po­rary, in­no­va­tive en­vi­ron­ment for chil­dren aged from three to five years old.

New kinder­garten class­room fa­cil­i­ties in­clude bright and spa­cious open learn­ing ar­eas, lead­ing-edge sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy ar­eas and an in­quiry-based ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram to suit each in­di­vid­ual stu­dent.

St Catherine’s Kinder­garten opens at 7am and closes at 6pm, with the pro­gram op­er­at­ing be­tween 8.30am and 2.30pm and wrap-around care be­fore and af­ter kinder­garten.

St Catherine’s Col­lege stu­dents work to­gether.
