When Marcellin Champagnat founded the Marist Brothers in 1817, he did so to educate the youth in rural France. Consequently, from its earliest days, the education of boys from rural and remote areas has been at the core of St Joseph’s College. Certainly, country boys outnumbered city boys in the very first cohort of Joeys students who came to Hunters Hill in 1881. Today, despite more than 136 years of change and growth, country families remain vital to maintaining our traditions.

The 2017 Headmaster’s Country Visits will build upon the success of the 2016 visits. They will provide the opportunity for the Headmaster and other SJC staff to connect with regional and rural families in their home towns. During the visits Ross Tarlinton would like to update you on current and planned developments at the College and to explain our Boys from the Bush bursary program. Prospective families are very welcome to attend these events.

Each evening Ross, the Head of Boarding, John Reading, and other College staff will host a casual Joeys gathering in family homes and other venues. Each afternoon staff will be available to meet with prospective families or catch-up with current and former families and Old Boys in person.
