The Cathedral School community will unite together to hold a unique event to raise much needed funds for drought stricken farmers titled “Unite this Night – Fight for Farmers”. The event taking place on Friday evening at Jezzine Barracks will see the school community participate in a 5km twilight run or walk dressed in bright neon colours and glow in the dark items to light up the night.
With the idea stemming from a Humanities tour to Singapore earlier in the year, the group came across a neon night run and thought it would be a great fundraising concept for our Western Queensland Drought Relief Appeal. The school has been raising money for drought relief all year and to date just over $6,000 has been raised.
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.
Every year 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.
Year 10 student, Alex Myhill from The Cathedral School is one of 48 students from Queensland and northern New South Wales who has been selected to participate in the Queensland Junior Physics Olympiad (JPhO) at the University of Queensland during the upcoming school holidays.
The Queensland Junior Physics Olympiad (JPhO) is a five day program for Year 10 students with an interest in science and mathematics. By presenting physics in a manner that complements senior physics, JPhO aims to develop problem solving skills as well as an appreciation and understanding of physics.
