100 Years Christian Brothers Bundaberg Celebrations

1 Mar 2019

Last week, Shalom College celebrated a century since their founding fathers, the Christian Brothers College, planted their flag in Bundaberg.

The brothers founded the Bundaberg School in February 1919, offering boys education from grade 5 through 12, until they merged with the girls' Loyola College in 1984 to create what we now know as Shalom College.

The first four principals of Shalom were Christian Brothers, with the longest standing brother, Br Rochford, remaining on staff until the end of last year.

To celebrate Shalom College hosted a dinner inviting Brothers, past students and staff of Bundaberg Christian College and Shalom College, with Mass the following morning at Holy Rosary church. 

All the guests at the dinner enjoyed looking through the old hand written enrolment book from Bundaberg Christian Brothers as well as photos, newspaper clippings and memorabilia from the 100 year history.

Check out the photos from the night in the gallery.
