St Catherine's School opened in 1957 and was administered by the Sisters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. In 1984 the first lay principal was appointed and this practice continues to the present day. In 2017, the school celebrated 60 years of providing Catholic education in Moorabbin.

St Catherine's is one of three primary schools in the Parish of Holy Trinity, Bentleigh East. St Catherine’s continues to provide a country school feel in suburbia. Students and families are known to all staff and families connect in many ways with the school.

Our school provides outstanding modern facilities and quality educational experiences. Our outdoor play spaces are safe and encourage creative and natural play experiences.

Our Catholic faith and traditions remain alive and visible in our school community. Learners are encouraged to encounter dialogue and connect their faith to life through social justice initiatives, sacramental programs, meditation, and celebrating liturgies and masses.

We embed our school values: respectful relationships, responsible behaviour and restorative practices in all that we do and teach.
