It’s sometimes hard to define, yet so easy to know when you see it.

In a Cathedral Grammar girl or boy, it’s as recognisable as their distinctive uniform.

You see it in the way they look you straight in the eye, in thoughtful and caring acts, in a commitment to helping those younger or less fortunate, in sticking at a job till it’s done, and achieving the very best they can.

Underpinning character is a series of virtues.

Each week of the year, the school highlights one of these virtues, discussing it, understanding it and sharing it.

So when you meet a Grammar girl or boy, expect not only an impressive vocabulary, but also one that they’re applying to their lives right now.

And you’ll see character which, as it develops, will be the bedrock for their future happiness.
