Year 11 students at The Cathedral School will have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills with personal financial education classes created by The Wealth Academy.
The program sponsored by Dalle Cort Financial Services and Austax Townsville will see a series of The Wealth Academy lessons delivered to 15 and 16 year old students who are at the start of the personal finances journey with gaining part time employment.
Ken Swan, Director of The Wealth Academy said the financial world is becoming increasingly complex and challenging for young people.
Members of The Cathedral School community are being encouraged to get behind the School’s Centenary celebrations by achieving 100 blood donations, one for each year since the School was founded in 1917.
For The Cathedral School’s Principal, Mr Ian Gamack it will be the first time he has donated blood.
“To be honest, I’m a little bit nervous about donating blood but I know it’s for a great cause on a great occasion.”
Students from a number of high schools in Townsville will have the opportunity to attend the #spatialrealworld Townsville conference organised by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines on Thursday held at The Cathedral School.
The event is designed to showcase to students the spatial and surveying industries (spatial sciences) as well as some of the new technology in the field.
Spatial sciences encompass the old fields of mapping and surveying. Today they are two of the most cutting edge fields of industry as they incorporate technologies such as laser scanning, LIDAR, UAVs (drones), 3D mapping and more. These tools help to measure and represent information about the world.
