Community spirit is on track
COMMUNITY involvement is one of the defining features of St Catherine’s Catholic College.
In early March, students displayed their work through a senior art exhibition and wearable art parade for Zonta International Women’s Day at Lure.
The college now looks forward to the Reef Festival in July/August.
St Catherine’s participates in fundraising activities for St Vincent de Paul, as well as social action in its Mini Vinnies program.
One way students help is through Proserpine Nursing Home visits.
Ruby Murdoch, Liam Stephens and Aaron Moore represented St Catherine’s Catholic College in the Lions Youth of the Year competition.
All students worked hard to participate in this competition, consisting of an application process, interview and speech.
Students received NAB accolades for their participation.
Completing a Certificate III in Maritime Operations during her time at Cruise Whitsundays, Year 11 student Pearl Giles took a step forward in her life.
St Catherine’s Catholic College principal David Burke congratulated Pearl on her traineeship.
“Pearl has been very proactive in securing this opportunity by undertaking work experience, completing other relevant tickets and certificates and investigating the requirements to apply for the traineeship,” he said.
“Pearl has been very organised and enthusiastic through the whole process and is looking forward to her career in the maritime industry.”
