We congratulate the Year 12 students from 2016 on their final academic results. Following a busy year, highlighted by academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, our students are now looking forward to the university offers they will receive from QTAC on 16 January 2017.
Students applying to University through the OP pathway had their results posted to them at the end of last month and we are pleased to announce that 21.3% received an OP 1-3 compared with a state average of 11.43%, and 90% of students received an OP from 1-15 compared with a state average of 81.35%.
Special congratulations must go to our five students who received the highest score possible in Queensland, an OP 1, Alex Myhill (School Dux), Esther Lim, Kira Maher, Kristopher Dickinson and Thomas Butson.
School may be officially over for Year 12 students around the region, however for Year 12 student, Flynn Doherty, he has one more official duty representing himself and North Queensland in the National Young ICT Explorers final in Sydney later this week.
At the North Queensland final held in August, 80 students from across the region presented their projects to 12 judges. The competition aims to encourage new inventors and entrepreneurs to create their ideas through technology.
Construction is well underway for The Cathedral School’s Centenary project, “The Connection Place” which will pay tribute to all the people who have been a part of the School over its first 100 years.
“The Connection Place” will be a large circular platform situated at the western end of the School’s famous lagoon, with a bench seat around the outer half. Glass panels along the back of this bench area will have thousands of names inscribed, providing permanent recognition of all those who have been part of the fabric of the school over the past 100 years.
However, with the School moving locations twice over those 100 years, student records are not as accurate as the School would like them to be. Past students and staff are urged to contact the school to make sure their details are recorded.
