As most students are counting down until the end of Term 3, a group of senior students from The Cathedral School are particularly excited for the end of term as they depart for a three week sporting tour of the United Kingdom.
This will be the School’s tenth visit across the globe with the first tour setting off in 1998. The biennial tour is available to Senior Students and provides a great opportunity for students to tour overseas and play quality rugby and netball in a different part of the world.
The Cathedral School Principal, Mr Ian Gamack said “The UK Tour is the pinnacle achievement for rugby and netball students at The Cathedral School and students look forward to this tour from their first game of rugby or netball at the school.”
Thirty two students from The Cathedral School are bound for the State finals in Brisbane next week after receiving the highest score from the northern region in the local Science and Engineering Challenge held earlier in the year.
The Science and Engineering Challenge is a nationwide Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) outreach program presented by the University of Newcastle in partnership with communities, Rotary clubs, universities and sponsors.
This Friday 21 July, over 1,500 people from The Cathedral School community will come together to celebrate an important milestone in the School’s history, celebrating the 100th Foundation Day.
St Anne’s Church of England Girls School officially opened on 21 July, 1917 with 71 students including seven boarders. In 1980 the school became co-educational and changed its name to The Cathedral School of St Anne & St James, through the reins of the first lay Principal.
The Cathedral School Principal, Mr Ian Gamack said “Foundation Day is very important to the School’s history and future as it allows us to recognise and celebrate the school’s beginnings and the many staff, students and school families who have made our school what it is today.”
