Past Students

Students who have attended The Cathedral School for more than one year are automatically granted life-time membership of the Past Students’ Association.

The role of the Past Students’ Association is: 

  • to preserve a spirit of good friendship between past students of the School

  • to foster and develop links with present students

  • to promote the history and values of the School

  • to foster and promote the welfare and interests of the School. 

The Past Students’ Association is not a fundraising body. Its main purpose is to keep past students connected to the School, and it aims to do that through regular communication and facilitation of reunions. All past students are welcome to meetings. The dates are listed below and in the School Board Room (Heatley House) at 5.00pm. For more information please contact the PSA President Mr Tom Porter.

Back to School BBQ – Recent Graduates

The Past Student Association holds a Welcome Back BBQ for recently graduated Year 12 students. The BBQ is held in the first few weeks of Term 1 at lunchtime on the Function Lawn. Come along and enjoy a complimentary BBQ lunch and catch up with fellow graduates and School staff.

Reunion Weekend: 23rd to 25th July 2021

The major annual reunion occurs on the weekend nearest to the School’s Foundation Day. All past students are welcome to attend the Reunion Weekend functions, which normally include: a school tour and afternoon tea on Saturday, a dinner function on Saturday night, and a service at St James’ Cathedral on Sunday morning. If you would like to coordinate your own year group to come together for a milestone anniversary (10, 20, 25 years etc) please contact the PSA President, Mr Tom Porter.
