Our annual "wet season" sometimes results in dangerous conditions, and the decision may be made to close schools to minimise risk to students and their families. Should this occur, you need to be aware of The Cathedral School's Closure of School Due to Severe Weather Conditions Procedure - click here to download a copy (PDF).
School Fees and Charges - Payment Intentions
There are some options available for paying your school accounts, and we are asking you to indicate your preferred payment intention, so that we can make the necessary arrangements prior to the start of the school year.
School fees are normally charged on a ‘per term’ basis and are applied to the accounts prior to the commencement of each new term. Subject levies, extracurricular activities and other charges are added to the accounts as and when they occur. A monthly Statement of Account will be issued and the outstanding balance is due and payable before the end of the following month.
There are two options for purchase of book packs for 2014 With both options, you can purchase the complete pack, or just select the items you require. Full booklists for each year level are available for download below.
Option 1 – on line ordering & home delivery
This service has now closed.
Option 2 – purchase at newsagency
Please note that a few of the listed items are only available from The Cathedral School Retail Shop – they do not appear on the online order form, and cannot be supplied by Lucky Charm.
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. Trading hours are 8am to 3.30pm.
