The Cathedral School is delighted to congratulate the Year 12 students from 2017 on their final academic results. Following a busy year, highlighted by academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, as well as the school’s Centenary celebrations, our students are now looking forward to the university offers they will receive from QTAC in January.
Students applying to University through the OP pathway had their results released online on Saturday and we are pleased to announce that 17.4% received an OP 1-3 compared with a state average of 11.75%, and 61.6% of students received an OP from 1-10 compared with a state average of 53.05%.
Special congratulations must go to our three students who received the highest score possible in Queensland, an OP 1, John Atkinson (joint School Dux), Simone de Nys (joint School Dux) and Sophie Horlock (School Captain).
Two students, Harlee Timms (Year 12) and Megan Heferen (Year 11) from The Cathedral School have recently returned from Brisbane after winning the Duologue section of the Queensland Youth Shake Fest Competition held at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts earlier this month.
Shake Fest organised by Shake & Stir Theatre Company, in its fifth year, has provided a unique opportunity for students across Queensland to focus their artistic abilities in an all-inclusive creative competition celebrating the works of William Shakespeare. Shake Fest is the original cross schools Festival connecting students' schools with a professional arts organisation.
Over 5,000 students entered the completion across the state, with 171 students representing their region at the state finals held in September. The duo performed an excerpt from the Shakespearean comedy Much Ado About Nothing to win their category topping other duos from Coomera Anglican College and Nudgee College.
On Friday 21 July, over 1,500 people from The Cathedral School community came together to celebrate an important milestone in the School’s history, celebrating the 100th Foundation Day.
St Anne’s Church of England Girls School officially opened on 21 July, 1917 with 71 students including seven boarders. In 1980 the school became co-educational and changed its name to The Cathedral School of St Anne & St James, through the reins of the first lay Principal.
The Cathedral School Principal, Mr Ian Gamack said “Foundation Day is very important to the School’s history and future as it allows us to recognise and celebrate the school’s beginnings and the many staff, students and school families who have made our school what it is today.”
