Flynn to attend National Young ICT Explorers Competition

School may be officially over for Year 12 students around the region, however for Year 12 student, Flynn Doherty, he has one more official duty representing himself and North Queensland in the National Young ICT Explorers final in Sydney later this week.

At the North Queensland final held in August, 80 students from across the region presented their projects to 12 judges. The competition aims to encourage new inventors and entrepreneurs to create their ideas through technology. 


Seeking out 100 years of past students

Construction is well underway for The Cathedral School’s Centenary project, “The Connection Place” which will pay tribute to all the people who have been a part of the School over its first 100 years. 

“The Connection Place” will be a large circular platform situated at the western end of the School’s famous lagoon, with a bench seat around the outer half. Glass panels along the back of this bench area will have thousands of names inscribed, providing permanent recognition of all those who have been part of the fabric of the school over the past 100 years.

However, with the School moving locations twice over those 100 years, student records are not as accurate as the School would like them to be. Past students and staff are urged to contact the school to make sure their details are recorded.


Students to find their perfect career match

Year 10 students at The Cathedral School are about to find their perfect career match through an intensive careers program at the school this week. Each student will have the opportunity to discover their own unique abilities and match these to possible career pathways through a world renowned aptitude assessment tool, the Highlands Ability Battery.

The online program, which is built on 90 years of ability and career research, will test a wide range of factors including personal style, aptitudes, learning styles, musical and creative abilities as well as interests, values and previous skills before providing feedback to the individual. 

This program delivered by Natural Ability will strengthen the already intensive consultation the School’s Careers Advisor, Ms Katrina Wilshire conducts with students on an individual basis, assisting them to choose a career that will suit their unique abilities and aptitude.
