Four students from The Cathedral School will travel to Brisbane on Friday to compete in the State Final of the Gardiner Interschool Chess competition after winning the Northern Region final held in Townsville. The event to be held at Brisbane State High School this Saturday and Sunday will see the team compete against 19 schools from around Queensland who were also regional final winners from 12 different parts of the state.
The Cathedral School Chess Coordinator, Mr Damian Lowrie said there were three stages of competition to the regional final held earlier in the year “Rounds one and two bring schools and students from all around their region to play against each other in an attempt to qualify to play in the ‘premier division’ in the final round of the regional stage of competition. The team that wins the final round of the regional competition is invited to participate at the State Finals in Brisbane.”
Don't miss out on seeing The Cathedral School's biannual production of "Spamalot".
"Spamalot" is based on Monty Python's irreverent cult classic film, The Holy Grail, and will prove to be a big hit for audiences of all ages. King Arthur finds the bravest and most dashing men in the land to join him at Camelot to form The Knights of the Round Table. However, he is bestowed a quest, by God, to find The Holy Grail. Ably assisted by the mysterious Lady of the Lake, Arthur and his Knights will battle wild beasts, Scottish enchanters and ferocious French taunting, in order to find The Holy Grail.
The show is hilariously funny and we have a group of extremely talented young actors, singers and dancers and we know audiences are going to love the show!
