About the School

St Catherine's Primary School is called to offer the riches of education and culture to the children of St Michael's Parish, Berwick. Situated in the south-east growth corridor of Melbourne, the school was established in 1996 with 65 students and presently has over 500 students.  St Catherine's Primary School shares the site with the junior campus of St Francis Xavier Regional College.  

Inspired by the life of St Catherine of Sienna, we undertake to nurture our students’ faith and encourage them to value:  

  • strength   
  • courage  
  • a desire for peace  
  • a compassionate response to the needs of others  
  • a belief in prayer and a lifelong love of learning.  

We provide opportunities for young people to participate in a wide range of activities including specialist subjects of physical education, library, Japanese Years 4-6, Music Years Prep-3, and ICT. Extra support is offered to students through the Reading Recovery Program, Extending Mathematics Understanding (EMU) and Phonemic Awareness Program. 

The annual Concert, Art Show and Sports Day are highlights of the school year for the entire school community.
