OLD COLLEGIANS ASSOCIATION
The St Joseph's College Old Collegians Association was established in 1943 to support
St Joseph's College in its endeavours to provide Catholic education for young men.
In addition to providing opportunities for you to reconnect through social functions and events, the Association supports the College financially along with its contributions of time and expertise.
Join in our events, share your stories.
Each year the SJOCA holds an Annual Reunion Dinner that allows class groups to catch up with school friends, produces an annual magazine "Ad Alta Virtute", runs an Annual Golf Day, celebrates a Remembrance Mass for deceased students and provides Bursaries for needy families - giving students that may not have the means, the opportunity to also have an education at St Joseph's College Geelong. There is fun and friendships to be had, the Association also holds meetings eight times a year.
As a St Joseph's Old Collegian - you may find yourself at a reunion in 5, 10 or 20 years time still sharing a laugh with old school mates, or perhaps hitting a great shot at the Golf Day!
Keep in touch and we will keep you up to date with any Old Collegians events. Best wishes for all of your futures!
