School Motto

Come Live Life in All its Fullness


The Cathedral College is a Catholic, Co-educational, Secondary, Boarding College in Rockhampton.

The College aims to deliver a holistic Catholic Education where academic excellence goes hand in hand with spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development.

Our College motto “Come, live life in all its fullness” invites every member of the College community to develop their relationship with Jesus, to nurture their individual gifts and to recognise and celebrate the giftedness of others.

The College is founded on the traditions of our predecessor Colleges, St Joseph’s Christian Brothers College and the Sisters of Mercy, Our Lady of Good Counsel College (Range College). Our core values are drawn from the charisms of their founders, Blessed Edmund Rice and Venerable Catherine McAuley. Gratitude, Respect and Compassion beat at the heart of College life reflecting our commitment to the message of Jesus Christ and enlivening our community.

Student protection and wellbeing are paramount at The Cathedral College. All students have the right to expect the school will always act to protect them from any kind of harm and to create safe learning environments. The Cathedral College is committed to best practices in student protection.

Academic excellence is sought and achieved, yet there is a broad education provided so that all who seek our values find a suitable pathway to attaining their goals. We have high expectations of our students in their relationships with one another and staff. Respect and good manners are cornerstones of these standards.

The College has an enviable reputation for providing an education which results in graduates who are well rounded young people.
