Lat­est and great­est fa­cil­i­ties

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

STAGE 3 of St Catherine’s Catholic Col­lege project was blessed and opened re­cently.

The new build­ings have cre­ated some amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for stu­dents, staff and the com­mu­nity.

The multi-purpose hall has many uses in­clud­ing daily HPE classes, staff-stu­dent sports competitions, par­ent in­for­ma­tion evenings, school mu­si­cal pro­duc­tions, Whit­sun­day Net­ball team prac­tices and, most re­cently, a sleep­ing area for 200 Aus­tralian De­fence Force per­son­nel as­sist­ing with the Cy­clone Deb­bie clean-up.

The tex­tiles fa­cil­ity is a pop­u­lar venue where the col­lege’s cafe fa­cil­ity is lo­cated. It is also where quilts, pil­lows and other items are made, fa­cil­i­tated by pro­fes­sional staff who have ex­ten­sive re­tail in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence.

The hos­pi­tal­ity room has cre­ated op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents to prac­tise their Cer­tifi­cate III Hos­pi­tal­ity skills. Stu­dents have catered for a range of events, in­clud­ing the school mu­si­cal, the school P&F din­ner and Big­gest Morn­ing Tea.

The graph­ics room al­lows stu­dents to test and chal­lenge their skills us­ing the lat­est in com­puter soft­ware and 3D print­ing. Stu­dents have demon­strated some ex­em­plary skills in the past three years, win­ning the Aure­con Bridge Build­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The col­lege’s in­dus­trial tech­nol­ogy and de­sign fa­cil­ity con­sists of wood­work and met­al­work fa­cil­i­ties and is the cur­rent venue for the Cer­tifi­cate III Me­chan­ics, used by St Catherine’s.
