Joeys staff, students and parents were fortunate to hear from Australian Journalist Stan Grant, as part of Indigenous Culture in the Curriculum Week. As a past parent and a proud Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi man, it was very special to hear from him.
Ron Moroney (1962) helps out in Joeys' archives once a week. A stellar student, he was College dux and a champion debater. He also played First XI cricket, and returned in the mid-1960s to teach alongside the Brothers that had taught him. His dad, Jack (1935), played seven Test matches for Australia. Joeys and cricket are in Ron's DNA.
Friendships that last a lifetime are what makes being a Joeys Old Boy so special. David McDonald (1959) and Charlie Abercrombie (1958) have been buddies for over 60 years. They also have an unparalleled history of giving back to the College.
St Joseph's College is celebrated for its inclusive, family atmosphere, welcoming boys from all around the globe. Our international family is particularly special, adding another layer to the rich diversity of students at the Hunters Hill campus.
Joeys drama students are encouraged to explore their creativity and push their boundaries, which is what they did recently when they wrote and performed 'Ultus: The Forgotten Story of Aurele de Lambert'.
Much-loved College Chaplain Father Gavin Foster SM recently celebrated 40 years in the priesthood, a remarkable achievement by a man whose pleasant manner and dedication to spreading the Gospel is an example to us all.
Head of Agriculture and Primary Industries, Mr Mark Bokenham, believes bringing the farm into the classroom and encouraging self-motivated learners is key to developing students who will thrive in the sector.
The College musical Strictly Ballroom was a smashing success, playing to packed houses every night. Hamish Stewart (Y12) played lead character Scott. He leads the school in liturgical song in his role as cantor and is a fine example of Joeys' enduring commitment to the arts.
