“Congratulations to our Year 12 Graduates of 2022 for their remarkable ATAR results. Their results were absolutely outstanding and the most impressive we have seen at The Cathedral School.

We commend the 2022 Year 12s on their efforts, positivity, and support of each other throughout their schooling and thank them for a wholehearted approach to their studies and trust in our teaching staff. We also acknowledge the essential contribution of our outstanding teachers and dedicated parents whose support of these graduates has been vital. It is important to recognise the 2022 Year 12s for their commitment to achieving personal bests in their studies, the incredible breadth of contribution to the School’s extracurricular programs they provided, and their inspired leadership of younger students. They have set a marvelous example for the younger students who will follow in their footsteps.

‘I can report that we have an amazing seven students whose ATARs are greater than 99, and the median ATAR score for the cohort was an astonishing 90. Alongside our excellent ATARs, 54 members of the graduating class also received 71 Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications; with several students awarded at least two certificates.’

The 2022 Year 12 Graduates have now received their university offers for 2023, with 80% of students receiving their first choice of course. We are also aware that several graduates have received substantial scholarship offers from universities across Queensland.

Congratulations to our Graduating Class!”

At Cathedral, we recognise our students as individuals.

We identify their unique strengths and interests and create study paths for each of our senior students that reflect this. Importantly, we uncover their intrinsic motivators and set them on a course towards post-school endeavors that will inspire work ethic, spark interest, and bring joy.

At Cathedral we believe ‘life-long success’ begins with a well-rounded education that develops the whole person and an attitude to lead successful and fulfilling lives. Our graduates leave school with far more than academic knowledge, they leave having developed an ability to dance, sing, play sports, to be successful, and continue to learn.

Our satisfaction comes from seeing our students graduate with confidence, connections, and a happy heart!

Success looks different for each student. We celebrate our diversity of graduate outcomes.
