A visit from Australia

Alumna Gail recently visited the College with her 2 boys, whilst they were visiting the UK from Australia.

Gail graduated from St Joseph's in 1999 and was keen to show her boys where their mum had gone to school. 

Gail explained that her experiences at St Joseph's had a strong impact on her decision to become a teacher - a career that she still loves 20 years on. As we walked around the College, Gail explained that she met her husband in Autralia during her year out, who then came back to England with her while she continued to study. During this time, her husband Rowan also taught English and Drama at St Joseph's. The boys had great fun climbing onto the theatre stage and posing for a photo to send to Dad whilst he stayed at home in Australia looking after the family farm. 

If you would like to visit the College, please get in touch or keep an eye out for our Alumni events and reunions.
