Tours & Visits

Tour on Tuesdays

New and prospective families are invited to enjoy a tour of The Cathedral School. The tour is an opportunity to observe classrooms in action and to see our extensive facilities. Tour on Tuesdays occur at 10am on the first Tuesday of every month (during Term time).

The School’s Registrar, Mrs Toni Lanphier takes families on a guided tour of classrooms and facilities (in the Junior School, Middle School and Senior School), allowing them to have a first hand experience of life at The Cathedral School.

The tour also allows family to ask many and varied questions about the educational options available to their child. These include questions about the extensive opportunities available to a student of The Cathedral School, including curriculum, academic excellence, scholarships, pastoral care, Chapel, music and sport.

Regional 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.

For more information on the regional visits during 2017, contact the Registrar Mrs Toni Lanphier on 4722 2000 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
