Regional and International Visits
The Cathedral School has a proud record of ensuring that communication between parents, students and teachers is open and productive. For families living in rural and remote areas, and even overseas, maintaining the level and quality of communication is even more important.
As a result, the school's senior staff embark on an extensive visit of regional Queensland every year. Staff spend time talking with current families about their child’s academic progress and social well being.
Parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they may have and discuss pathways to ensure that their child is able to perform at their best.
During these visits the staff also take the time to meet with prospective families to discuss the benefits of a Cathedral education.
Regional visits are held throughout the school year, with meetings organised by the Registrar prior.
