Our Catholic College

A Holistic Education

The Cathedral College is committed to providing opportunities for growth across all areas of human endeavour including the spiritual, the academic, the social, the personal, the cultural, the emotional and the physical. In other words, to provide students with a holistic education.

Spiritual Life


The spirit of Jesus Christ forms an integral part of daily life at The Cathedral College. Regular prayer in classes and as a full school community allows staff and students time to reflect on the presence of God in their lives.

The College maintains a close relationship with the worshipping community of St Joseph’s Cathedral of the Catholic Parish of Rockhampton South. Important liturgies are celebrated in the magnificent Cathedral nearby.

A student liturgy committee is formed each year to assist in the
organisation of various spiritual celebrations including a monthly Eucharist.



Academic Life


Across all year levels at The Cathedral College, students are challenged to perform to the best of their academic ability.

It is clearly acknowledged that students have gifts and talents in different fields and as a result the College offers a diverse curriculum leading to university entry, traineeships, apprenticeships and the workforce



Leadership and Personal Development


The College takes the view that all students are leaders and recognises and celebrates the giftedness and uniqueness of each individual. As students move through the College, they are expected to assume more responsibility and are asked to be supportive of and role models for younger students.

Some students are elected to formal leadership positions. These include College Captains, Boarding Captains, House Captains, Sporting and Cultural Captains, and Chairs of Committees which
coordinate the liturgical, social and community service aspects of College life.

A range of leadership camps and personal development days also helps to
nurture leadership qualities in our students.



Co-curricular and Extra-curricular Opportunities


The spirit inherent in the College is often a direct result of the bonding and sense of teamwork and community forged by involvement in co-curricular activities.

The Cathedral College students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities including: sport, music, choir, drama, public speaking, debating, Opti-MINDS, community and environmental services.

Some of the most popular sporting activities include: netball, basketball, rugby league, rugby union, AFL, swimming, rowing, track and field, and cross country.

Cultural activities include a biennial musical production, a music festival, numerous public speaking, debating, band and choir competitions.

Community service activities include contributions to many worthy causes by way of ‘hands on’ assistance such as TCC's Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp and fund raising.

Every year, staff and students celebrate everything that is TCC in a more relaxed and enjoyable environment.  The day begins with a Liturgy followed by outdoor activities and concludes with a talent quest.

The students’ eager participation in this extensive range of activities broadens horizons, improves self confidence and, ultimately, plays a major role in the development of mature and healthy adults.
