Following an action packed year, highlighted by outstanding academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, our Year 12 students from 2014 are now looking forward to the University offers they will receive from QTAC this month.
Students applying to University through the OP pathway had their results posted to them last month and we are pleased to announce that 25% received an OP 1-3, 70% received an OP 1 - 10 and 90% of students received an OP from 1-15.
Special congratulations must go to our five OP 1 students, Nicola Arratoon, Harry Butson, School Dux, Georgie Juszczyk, Kayla Spragg and Thomas Townson.
Our students applying to QTAC via the tertiary rank pathway will receive notification of their first round University offers this Thursday. We are expecting that all of our graduates who have applied for a University place will receive an offer at that time.
Principal Mr Ian Gamack said “These results add to a very successful year for Cathedral students both in and outside of the classroom. However, none of this would have been possible without the considerable hard work from our dedicated and supportive staff and I thank them for all the assistance they have given our students to reach their potential in an environment that values excellence and a life-long commitment to learning.”
A group of Year 12 students from The Cathedral School will have a different Schoolies Week celebration to most other teenagers their age when they visit the Lighthouse orphanage in Cambodia as volunteers for two weeks.
The group of 13 students, two past students and three supervisors will depart on Sunday 23 November and are looking forward to making a positive difference to the orphanage through the projects they will be helping out with, which include painting dormitories, gardening and teaching English language classes.
The wider school community has rallied around the travelling group by actively participating in organised fundraising activities which has raised enough funds to take all the children to the local waterpark as an outing. The group will also take over with them 240 kilograms of donated clothes for the children.
