Catholic Cathedral College is proud to be a school of “Special Character”. All students take part in Religious Education and are involved in the religious life of the College through morning prayers and mass services. Students also attend a Retreat in which they are encouraged to discover their relationships with God, themselves and their fellow students.
The Ministry of Education defines special character and integrated schools as:
A State integrated school is a school with a special (religious) character, which has been integrated into the State system. Every integrated school has a maximum roll which it is not allowed to exceed. First of all an integrated school has to cater for students who meet the school’s special character requirements. If there is room left, the school is able to enrol a set small number of students who do not meet the special character requirements.
