Students at The Cathedral School will celebrate National Science Week next week with a range of exciting hands of activities and workshops aimed at giving students the opportunity to see how Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) impacts on our lives, economy, society and world.
First held in 1997, National Science Week has become one of Australia’s largest festivals. Last year saw a staggering 1.3 million people participate in over 1,800 events and activities.
The festival is proudly supported by the Australian Government; partners CSIRO, the Australian Science Teachers Association and the ABC; and sponsors Cosmos, Discovery Science, NewScientist and Popular Science.
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.”
