We are planning to take part in the Stevenage Race for Life this year. We would love parents and staff to join together for this event to show a real whole school community effort for this amazing cause. Please sign up directly through the Race for Life website, during the sign up process you can opt to join a group - search for 'St Catherine's group' and join with us. Together we can make a difference! ............ Thursday 1st March is World Book Day. Children are invited to dress up as a character from their favourite book.
