We are a close-knit, supportive and diverse community where each family is welcome.

Strong community connections empower us to create a nurturing and inclusive environment that prepares students for success in the real world.

FCJ College has an active Alumni. Our past students are an important part of our story and we aim to continue this connection past graduation to share and celebrate our great community.


Events and reunions


Members of the community planning to organise a reunion are encouraged to contact the College – we’d be happy to be involved and offer assistance.


Each year, the preceding graduating class is invited back to FCJ College for afternoon tea. This is always a great occasion for students to meet up with their teachers, talk about life after graduating and talk to students about how to make the most of their senior years.


If you would like to organise a reunion, have a tour of FCJ College and the FCJ College Archives, please contact Kristy Hanrahan – Community Engagement Officer at kristy.hanrahan@fcjbenalla.catholic.edu.au or 03 5762 1222


Keeping Connected


FCJ College has their own Facebook page. It’s a great way for past students to keep in touch with activities of the College and where we can post information on reunions and alumni news.


Many of our past students have made interesting and outstanding contributions to the community and country since graduating from FCJ College. These stories are inspiring to our current students. We are keen to promote news of graduations, post graduate degrees, awards or special notices, interesting travels or experiences.


If you are a past student, or know one, with an interesting story to tell please contact the College office on 03 5762 1222 or our College Archivist Mrs Lyn Tanner archives@fcjbenalla.catholic.edu.au
