Donations to St Vincent De Paul

Miss Tinta’s Pastoral Class took it upon themselves to donate items to those less fortunate. These items were used to create hampers that were then given to Mr Vaughan Kelly from St Vincent De Paul. Thank you to Miss Tinta and the boys in her class for the wonderful and thoughtful donations.

Class of 2022 Facebook Page

The current year 7  students are known as the class of 2022 and as such we are known as the parents of the ‘class of 2022′.

There is a Facebook page for all parents of this year group. Called ‘Class of 2022 parents’ . Just search on Facebook and there is a photo of the main building.

It is a closed group so people can see who are members but only members can see posts.

Send a request on the page and an administrator will approve you ( a year 7 parent) .

It is a good way to keep in touch of what is happening with our boys both now and in the future and about social events for the parents.


Also there is a parent contact list that people can join.

Next year this will be updated so please complete and return your details to be added on the list.

A great way to make contact with your sons friends parents.

This year it was a sign up genius or survey monkey and it has been suggested that some people didn’t complete and return the form as they thought they were volunteering for something!!


Special Mention – Music in Year 7

Any special occasion at Joeys usually involves some sort of ceremony which also means some accompanying singing or playing.  Several talented boys in Year 7 are always ready to jump in a be involved

when there is a need. Sebastian Darney, Rylan Barnes, Kye Harbrow, John Giuliano, Kyan Trindall, Hamish Stewart, Oliver Maroulis  and Robbie Hunt, have a great mix of talent and generosity. Rafferty Allison on the Trumpet and Declan Kelly on the Tuba have also been a big help. Family Masses, Assemblies, the Graduation Mass, The Recent Dedication of the Chapel Mass, the regular Boarders Mass on Sunday nights and the Wednesday Morning Mass are just some of the commitments. Along with this, rehearsals also take place. Thank you very much boys for your time and effort. You have certainly contributed wonderfully to the Joeys community his year.

Technology Tips for Teens

While appropriate use of technology is always important for our young men, as we head into the busy examination period it becomes increasingly important to monitor technology usage. Below are some tips that you might find useful in discussions with your son.

Pastoral Care Update

Today we discussed as a group respect in general but placed a particular focus on the respect for women. We linked this to White Ribbon Day and discussed the importance of days such as this. The boys focused on features of respectful relationships and developed a meaning and understanding for the term consent.

Headmasters Assembly

The Assembly today was the final one for the year and also the final Assembly for Mr and Mrs Tarlinton. The College came together to thank Mr Tarlinton for his 12 years of service, support, care and guidance of the young men who have attend SJC both past and present.

Year 11 student Charlie, who is also one of our new Dorm Seniors, addressed the Assembly and spoke to thank Mr and Mrs Tarlinton. Charlie mentioned the many achievements that Ross has made but he particularly focused on his leadership and his selfless character. Charlie described Mr Tarlinton as an unbelievable role model and stated that the safety, well-being and happiness of each and every student has been at the forefront of each of his everyday actions. Charlie also thanked Mrs Tarlinton and made particular note to her support of School functions and her selfless attitude to allow much of her personal life be consumed by College activities.

Sam Armstrong then presented Mrs Tarlinton with some flowers to again thank her for the support and care that she has shown over the last 12 years.

A standing ovation for Mr Tarlinton
