The Saint Joseph’s International Catholic College is gearing up to celebrate a hundred years of providing education services to the country.
The school revealed its centenary logo and song during a corporate dinner last night.
The event brought corporate houses, organisations and families together to raise funds for the St. Joseph’s International Catholic College’s centenary celebrations that will be held in February 2017.
The school was established in 1917 and has since grown from humble beginnings of being just a small room full of students, to becoming one of PNG’s most well established schools; providing both Papua New Guinea curriculum and the New South Wales curriculum.
Archbishop of Port Moresby Fr. John Ribat said the school aims to provide the best for the growth of a student not only in education but also spiritually and that has been the mission of the school since its establishment.
He also added that the preparations and celebrations of the centenary celebrations is not only to celebrate what happened in the past but to celebrate what will happen in the future.
The centenary logo was launched by the Archbishop; designed by grade ten students John Kevaro and Mohammad Sadiq.
The centenary song was composed by Grade 11 teacher, Mrs Caroline Kimat and sung by her grade 11 class.
There will be more events held in the lead up to the 2017 centennial celebration, and ex students, former teachers, family and friends are encouraged to join the St. Joseph’s International Catholic Collage family in their endeavours.
