This week we welcomed our new Sixth Formers to St Catherine’s. A mixture of St Catherine’s Year 11 girls and those who are new to the school came to join us for three days of team building and taster lessons.

Each girl was able to experience a taster lesson in each subject, and these lessons really fired their enthusiasm for September. The girls also took part in rounders, a picnic in the sunshine and student cookery. We invited a ceramicist to come to school, and the girls all painted a mug to use in the Common Room, and Sister Marilu from Peru taught them how to make beautiful beaded braclets. These three days allowed bonds to be established between both year groups, meaning the girls can get off to a flying start in September!
