The St John's College Alumni Community

Being a part of the St John’s College community does not finish at the end of residence but continues through a life-long association. Not only do alumni of the College retain the friends they make during their residence they join a wide circle of people allowing them to develop strong professional and social networks. Whether contact is maintained through reunions, receiving College news via emails and the website, mentoring opportunities, or through giving to the College. All St John’s College alumni are encouraged to retain a strong link to their alma mater.

Within the College the main point of contact for alumni is through the Advancement and Alumni Office, which works to maintain contact with alumni, develop relationships, communicate with the St John’s community, manage planning and co-ordination of events such as reunions and fundraising initiatives as well as maintain the accuracy and currency of the College alumni records.

The Johnsmen’s Association

The Johnsmen’s Association is the alumni organisation of St John’s College. Formally established in 1952 (although in existence since 1891), it organises reunions and events for former students, raises money for College scholarships and supports initiatives of the current students.

The Assoication's major event, the Annual Dinner, is always well-attended and a great opportunity for alumni to catch up in the College environs. Its annual luncheon, Laffo’s Long Lunch, has successfully raised funds for the Matt Laffan Scholarship for a student with a physical disability to attend St John's for close to a decade. Its offshoot branch, the Melbourne John’s Club keeps interstate alumni connected. The Association also puts out an annual publication, The Association Newsletter, every December.

You can contact the Association at info@johnsmen.com.

The current executive are: Mr Richard Smith (President, 1998), Mr Paul Dellow (Secretary, 2005) and Mr Richard Hendriks (Treasurer, 1982).
