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.
Enrolments are now open for Cathedral's Kindergarten and Pre-Prep programs in 2014.
The Cathedral School's Early Learning Centre aims to provide a safe, caring and Christian environment which supports the learning and personal development of each child.

More than 300 Grandparents will head back to school for the day when they attend the Grandparents’ Day celebrations held at The Cathedral School on Friday.
Every year the Cathedral’s Early Learning Centre and Junior School opens its classrooms to Grandparents in a celebration of family inclusion and involvement. It has become an annual event that the whole school community really looks forward to.
Head of Junior School, Mr Paul Taylor said “Grandparents’ Day is a very important event on our school calendar as it gives our grandparents an opportunity to feel special and welcomed into the school community. Things are so busy now days with children doing sport, music and dance, that at times, our grandparents can be forgotten.”
Coming from tiny Dauan Island in the Torres Strait, on the northernmost tip of Australia, Marclene Mooka's chance to go to a local school ran out at Grade 7.
She moved to The Cathedral School in Townsville as a boarder from Year 8, a tough call for any kid but one that she, her family, the school, and the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation, knew she was up to.
Marclene, 17, in the first year of a Bachelor of Nursing Science degree at James Cook University, is the first person in her family to attend university.
