After celebrating the National Day of Action Against Bullying earlier this year, one Cathedral student, Alex Woods, was inspired by the school’s involvement in the event and has gone the extra mile to contribute by writing a song about her experiences with bullying at a previous school. The song titled Don’t Give Up was written by the Year 8 student including all the lyrics and music and it was then recorded at a local Townsville recording studio, The Rec Room.
The song is available for viewing on The Cathedral School’s YouTube channel and has received almost 900 views since being published last month. Here is link to view the video http://youtu.be/c_MhkuaoqQg.
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.
