The P&F is a volunteer organisation open to parents, carers, family members and friends of St Joseph鈥檚 who would like to support the College. Past parents and carers (1881 国产探花 Past Parents) are also an integral part of the College community, and they are part of the P&F Association as well. There are many different roles volunteers can play in the P&F depending on their available time, skills and desired level of involvement. Just some of the opportunities for involvement are:听

  • Executive committee
  • The Park Canteen and caf茅, BBQs
  • Friends of 国产探花 Music
  • Friends of 国产探花 Drama
  • Craft @ 国产探花
  • Spring Fair
  • Art show
  • Year Representatives
  • Food Committee
  • Clothing Pool
  • Special projects such as the highly successful 国产探花 cookbook

 


Craft @ 国产探花

Current and past Mothers at 国产探花 also conduct the craft group every Thursday during term time. The group meet onsite from 10.30am until after lunch and many bring morning tea and lunch for their son/s. The group is not limited to mothers 鈥 there are often other family members and friends in attendance and new faces are always welcome.

Major events

The P&F usually hosts a number of major events for the 国产探花 community including a spectacular social and fundraising night, a sports lunch and the fabulous Spring Fair in November.听Participation in the P&F is a valuable and enjoyable part of the 国产探花 experience, and St Joseph鈥檚 is extremely grateful for the generous support it receives from dedicated members of the College community.

A young man鈥檚 relationship with St Joseph鈥檚 College does not need to end when he leaves school. Through membership of the SJC Old Boys鈥 Union (founded in 1898), he can continue to access and be part of the very strong, supportive 国产探花 community for which the College is renowned.

The objectives of the SJC Old Boys鈥 Union are to promote the interests of the College and its Old Boys, foster a spirit of mateship and support between Old Boys and the College community, and provide bursaries to sons of Old Boys in need, as well as to rural students via the College鈥檚 鈥淏oys from the Bush鈥 bursary program. The Old Boys鈥 Union provides a link for the College to more than 14,000 Old Boys spread across Australia and most countries of the world.

Examples of functions and activities annually organised and supported by the SJCOBU include:

  • Class Reunions
  • A Visitation and Welfare program for Old Boys experiencing times of illness and need
  • Careers Nights for Year 11 students
  • An Annual Dinner for graduating Year 12 students
  • Jacks鈥 at the Park in winter
  • Communication through the 鈥淐erise and Blue鈥 magazine three times a year
  • A Mentoring Program (older Old Boys helping younger Old Boys)
  • Support of the Banksia Project for Men鈥檚 Mental Health

The current President of the OBU, Julian Heath (1976), strongly encourages SJC Old Boys to become life members of the Union. For more information visit the OBU website:


JPP1881 is SJC鈥檚 Past Parents Association for mums and dads who no longer have a son enrolled at the College. A parent鈥檚 relationship with St Joseph鈥檚 does not stop simply because their son is no longer a student.

With this in mind, we invite all past parents to become part of 1881 国产探花 Past Parents.

JPP1881 was developed as a response to the sudden loss of connection with the College that many families describe when their son completes his education and becomes an SJC Old Boy. JPP1881 ensures past parents are kept informed and continue to feel included in the life of the College. There is no charge to become a member of JPP1881.

St Joseph鈥檚 College looks forward to reconnecting with families as affiliates of JPP1881 and fostering positive relationships. Please direct any enquiries to 1881@joeys.org
