Katharyn Rosa Alvoret (née Lavigne; born 11 November 1962) is a Staynish-Aponivian Labour politician and Member of Parliament (MP) who has represented three different constituencies since 1986. She has served as Secretary of State for Education since the 2021 general election, previously serving as Minister of School Standards from 2020 to 2021. Alvoret is ideologically a social democrat and a left-wing nationalist.

Of mixed Staynish and Nordenpuntian parentage, Alvoret was born in La Tuque on a visit to distant family in the Democratic Republic of Nordenpunto to a poor Staynish mother and Nordenpuntian father. She grew up in Hindleck, Keveri, Sani Bursil and was described as an avid scholar and critical thinker. Alvoret went on to attend South Celidizia University at the age of 16 where she graduated with a Masters in Politics and International Relations.

Alvoret founded the Fund the Keveri Children! charity at the age of 21 with several friends during her university course. In her spare time she would interview homeless people in shelters across Keveri to raise awareness for homelessness in Sani Bursil following the economic depression of the mid-to-late 1970s and early 1980s. The economic depression contributed to a short-term shift to a left-centrist spectrum in politics, so when Alvoret ran for the Hindleck constituency in 1986 she beat the 42-year Conservative veteran and incumbent Home Secretary Lambertus Hobs-Hantham, and became one of the youngest Labour MPs of the era at 23. She later ran for South Soutbery in 1998 and Coggleton in 2019.
