St. Paul's Co-educational College Alumni Association

Welcome Message

Dear Fellow Alumni,

As we draw ever closer to the commencement of celebratory events in September 2015 for our alma mater's Centenary, this issue of the alumni newsletter continues along the themes of People, Passion and Pedagogy.

The People article on the Kennedy Road "Stories" is a great write-up, guaranteed to bring back memories from years past.  These stores, with its culinary delicacies as well as the indispensable "water melon footballs" were, and continue to be, very much a part of SPCC life.

Your Alumni Association has been involved in many facets of community work and we have now been designated as a Caring Company by the SAHK (formerly known as "The Spastics Association of Hong Kong").  The Passion of our members in assisting people less fortunate deserves our higher respect and appreciation.

Our distinguished alumnus, cum Music Director of SPCC, Mr Warren Lee (1994), is featured in the Pedagogy section.  Under his leadership, SPCC's music traditions and standards of excellence continue to prosper.

You will also be interested to read about a historic music event featuring our Alumni Choir and our old adversaries (you know who they are) in the Music Festivals of years past.  Alumni choirs from eight of these schools participated in  a charity concert for Sheng Kung Hui, and by all accounts, our Alumni Choir did very well among the group.

Another first for the Alumni Association took the form of a basketball league in which 15 teams participated.  The finals took place at the school's sports centre on 13 June with an outstanding display of jaw-dropping talents and skills.  Stay tuned for future events.

Last but not least, I hope many of you will participate in the upcoming Centenary celebratory events, which are listed on our website.  I look forward to seeing you then.

Dear Alumni,

Looking for something interesting to do this weekend? Some very good advice from our Chairman Terry:

1. Sculpture by the Sea - Bondi Beach (22 Oct to 8 Nov 2015)

Sculpture by the Sea, the world's larges free to public sculpture exhibition, returns to Bondi Beach for its 19th year.

The exhibition starts today, and will carry on until 8th November.  

The Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach coastal walk is being transformed into a 2km long temporary sculpture park featuring over 
100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world.

More useful information can be obtained from this website:

Definitely something worthwhile to attend/see/experience - and, better still, take your families with you.

2. Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges Walk (Sunday 25 November)

If your name happened to be Johnny or you are a walker, or both, then the Seven Bridges Walk may be a good event to join.

Now into its tenth year, the annual Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges Walk will return on Sunday 25 October 2015 bigger and better than ever.

The course is a 27km closed loop circuit that travels clockwise around Sydney Harbour, highlighting many of the magnificent views around the harbour.

The course will be open from 7.30am to 4.30pm on event day (this coming sunday).

You can register for the event by following the links on this site.

This is a great day out for the whole family.

The past nine years has seen a total of 75,000 walkers take part in the Seven Bridges Walk and over $2 million raised for charity. The event is a great way to see Sydney, benefit your health, join in a great community activity and raise money for charity. You can donate online or at any of the event Villages or bridges along the way.

To participate in the event you can register online prior to the day or pay on the day.

Standard (online): $45*
On the Day: $60*
Children 12 and under are free (not including a cap)

It is not a race and everyone is a winner. You can start at any of the seven event Villages (see the website for details) and walk clockwise around as much or little of the 27km closed loop circuit as you like. As part of the offerings for the Cancer Council NSW Seven Bridges Walk, there will be food, music and activities at each of the seven Villages.

If you are attempting to complete the entire course, the organiser strongly recommends that you start prior to 11am in order to finish before the 4.30pm course and Village closures.

The above events are not organised by SPCCAA NSW. That said, you may bump into your fellow school mates there, any time...Who knows?
