SOAR – Edition One

A Celebration of John Paul College Alumni

It gives me great pleasure to pen a few words for this, the first edition of Soar. Soar is set to become a regular publication as we share the stories and celebrate the success of John Paul College alumni around the globe.

Since joining the College as Principal at the beginning of the year and meeting our stakeholder groups, I have been particularly impressed by the quality of our alumni. As a relatively young school, John Paul College alumni have achieved remarkable success across diverse disciplines and professions and their achievements bring inspiration and motivation to the JPC community.

In reading the stories of our profiled alumni, it is affirming to note the fondness with which they regard their old school and their touching tributes to former teachers who helped shaped
their development and learning.

I take this opportunity to congratulate the 14 outstanding women and men featured in this edition of Soar and thank them for their involvement in bringing this publication to life.
