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.
This Friday, The Cathedral School Rowing squad will celebrate their most successful season on the water with Olympic Medalist, Alexander ‘Sasha’ Belonogoff.
Sasha has recently returned from Rio de Janeiro where he competed in the Men’s Quad Scull event alongside Australian teammates James McRae, Karsten Forsterling and Cam Girdlestone winning a Silver medal.
