At Cathedral, we are 'educating for life-long success' . We know that this requires a well-rounded education - to develop the "whole person" by nurturing the body and spirit as well as the mind.
Students are continually challenged and encouraged to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities available at Cathedral. A careful balance of academic, sporting, cultural and spiritual activities produces confident, well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the challenges of life.
It is now time to start preparing for the next school year.
The Back to School 2014 section of the website contains all the information and forms that families need to prepare for the 2014 school year.
Please check the menu items carefully and return all relevant forms on time, so that everything is organised when school begins on Wednesday 29 January 2014.
The School Retail Shop is open until Friday 29 November 2013 and will re-open on Monday 20 January 2014 to assist with your back-to-school needs.
Enrolments are now open for day and boarding students in Year 7 and 8 in 2015, with enrolment interviews commencing early in 2014
Since the establishment of The Cathedral School’s Middle School program for boys and girls in Years 7, 8 and 9 in 2006, our students have been experiencing the benefits of this environment well before the state government’s decision to move Year 7 into secondary school in 2015.
The well-established Middle School program, coordinated by energetic and dedicated staff, represents an exciting and challenging opportunity for adolescents to deal more effectively with a broad range of issues confronting them and their learning in a dynamic and evolving modern world.
Year 3 student, Jasmine Vera from The Cathedral School is bound for Melbourne as she has been selected as a finalist in the Robogals Science Challenge in her age group for her Magnificent Mealworm Experiment.
Robogals, an initiative by Marita Cheng (former North Queensland resident – Cairns and 2012 Young Australian of the Year) was formed as a student club at the University of Melbourne in 2008 to increase female interest in engineering.
Today, the Robogals Science Challenge is a nationwide science competition for girls, which enables them to learn a bit more about science and engineering by conducting science projects or experiments with a friend or a parent (or another mentor). Entries to the competition are submitted online in the form of videos, photos and writing in three age categories.
Patients of the Townsville Hospital will think Christmas has come early when carolers from The Cathedral School’s Music Department visit on Friday 22 November.
The students from Year 7 to 11 will perform a variety of well-known Christmas carols with the aim of spreading some holiday cheer. Following the concert, patients will be able to join in on the singing with some of their favourite Christmas songs.
The School’s Leo Club will also join in on the festivities with one of the students dressing up as Santa Claus and handing Christmas cards to the patients.
