Mrs Rodrigues

“I truly believe that a child’s education should be a collage of  happy experiences. St Catherine’s School provides a secure and nurturing environment  for these experiences to take place, where our children can grow and flourish academically, culturally and spiritually. Our dedicated teachers pride themselves on helping the children develop into compassionate and responsible citizens of the future generation.”

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” – Aristotle
