The FCJ Col­lege com­mu­nity cel­e­brated its an­nual Founders Day on Thurs­day, August 16.

Founders Day ac­knowl­edges and cel­e­brates the ar­rival of the FCJ Sis­ters to Be­nalla and recog­nises the vi­tally im­por­tant role they have had in the de­vel­op­ment of the Col­lege from 1900 to the pre­sent day.

Staff and stu­dents at­tended mass in St Joseph’s Church fol­lowed by ac­tiv­i­ties on the col­lege grounds in­clud­ing sack races, tun­nel ball, staff vs stu­dents net­ball and tug o’war.

A bar­be­cue lunch was pro­vided as well as musical en­ter­tain­ment through­out the day.

Many staff and stu­dents said they thor­oughly en­joyed the day, which con­tin­ues to be a muchan­tic­i­pated event on the FCJ Col­lege cal­en­dar.

Proud: FCJ Stu­dents take part in Founders Day at St Joseph’s Church.
