Almost 400 grandparents will head back to school for the day when they attend the Grandparents’ Day celebrations held at The Cathedral School on Friday with some grandparents coming as far as interstate and even overseas.
Every year the Cathedral’s Early Learning Centre and Junior School opens its classrooms to grandparents in a celebration of family inclusion and involvement. It has become an annual event that the whole school community really looks forward to.
Head of Junior School, Mr Luke Baills said “Grandparents Day is only one of the many family orientated events held annually at the School. Events such as this allow the school community to celebrate the unique culture of our school with very special people.”
Cathedral’s Open Boys 8+ Rowing Squad will wear pink socks for the local rowing season in support of The McGrath Foundation’s Pull on Your Socks annual campaign.
Bringing some warmth to the sporting calendar this winter, Pull On Your Socks encourages sports clubs and sporty people to turn their game pink by wearing the McGrath Foundation’s Pink Socks and hosting a fundraising event. Every dollar raised will help the McGrath Foundation place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young Australians.
Year 5 students at The Cathedral School were filled with excitement as they set foot into their new flexible learning classroom space last week.
The new space exemplifies the latest in classroom design research, and moves away from the long held single-cell industrial approach that has dominated educational spaces in our schools. The new flexible learning space designed for the Year 5 students has given the teachers and students the opportunity to work in a variety of teaching and learning modes.
