On Thursday 26 May, children at The Cathedral School aged eight and under will celebrate the joys of childhood as a part of the festivities for Under Eights’ Week. This year is the 60th year of the celebration organised annually by the Early Childhood Australia Queensland Branch which aims to give young children a forum to shine and enhance community awareness of the rich and competent contribution young children make to the community. The theme for 2016 is 'Early Learning, Everyone Benefits”.
The Cathedral School’s Early Childhood Coordinator Mrs Amanda Banister said Under Eights’ Week is a chance to celebrate children, childhood and the best ways in which young children learn.
Erica Coxon, a Year 12 boarding student from The Cathedral School, is one of 27 students from across the world to be selected for a prestigious International Summer Science School program to be held in Heidelberg in Germany during July and August.
Erica attended the National Youth Science Forum held at The Australian National University in Canberra earlier this year with 200 students from around the country and from this group was one of three students selected from Australia to attend the four week program in Germany.
Our Kindy and Prep staff are opening their classroom doors on Thursday 2 June so parents can learn about giving their child the best start to their educational journey.
At the Open Morning you'll be able to meet the teaching and support staff, ask important questions, see the Kindy and Prep classes in action and gain an insight into Cathedral's early childhood programs.
