History of North Melbourne C.B.C. Released


by News Weekly

News Weekly, December 16, 2000
What did Bob Santamaria and Arthur Calwell, Senator McManus and Senator McKenna, Bishops Beovich, Lyons, Stewart and Morgan; Sir James Gobbo (the Governor of Victoria), Jim Whelan (Whelan the Wrecker), Ron Tandberg (cartoonist), Joe Cahill and footballers like Kevin Dynon, Laurie Dwyer, Aaron Hamill and Steven Allessio have in common?

They were all "North Old Boys"!

"North" is St Joseph's Christian Brothers College, North Melbourne, was established in 1903, to serve the working-class suburbs of North and West Melbourne, Flemington, Kensington and Brunswick. "North" produced a seemingly endless line of Catholic men who devoted their lives to the Church (four Bishops, 96 priests, 30 brothers), or who rose to positions of influence in political and public life, the professions and business (as well as the V.F.L./A.F.L.).

As of this year (2000), the St Joseph's, North Melbourne campus has formally joined with St Joseph's, Pascoe Vale campus, to form a single new entity - St Josephs' College, Melbourne.

Thus, "North" is officially no more, but its spirit continues with the people who have been involved over nearly a century.

The Spirit of North, written by Br Ron Stewart, a former Principal (1960 - 1965) chronicles briefly the History of North (1903 - 2000), highlighting its many achievements, some (unfortunately not all) of its famous staff members, and "Old Boys".

Written in the style of an expanded College Year Book, but spanning its 97 year history, the book truly encapsulates the spirit which is unique to "North".

As the Governor of Victoria, Sir James Gobbo, himself a "North" old boy, states in the foreword:

"The Spirit of North admirably meets its critical goals. It tells its story in a spare yet moving fashion".

P.S. "Who is Joe Cahill?" - Well, if you were a North Old Boy, you'd know!

This memorable book is available from: Rev Br Ron Stewart, 741 Park St, Brunswick, 3056, ph 03 9380 2314

Price $22.00 (includes G.S.T.) or $27.00 (includes G.S.T. and postage)
