2018 State of Origin Series Opener

For well over a century, Jimmies students have donned the mighty Maroon and Gold jersey thus keeping the tradition of the Rugby League fraternity alive at St James.  Many players have gone on to represent their club, state and country.  But more importantly all have walked away with fond memories of the battle won or lost on the footy field.

To mark the occasion of 150 years of St James College Education, on Wednesday 6 June, the College will be hosting a Gathering in the hall to acknowledge all those who have represented the school in the sport of Rugby League.  Furthermore, it would be quite fitting to announce a Jimmies Rugby League Team of the Century on the night.  After a brief presentation, past students, past and present staff will be invited to stay and watch the 2018 State of Origin series opener on the big screen.

Doubles on the game will be sold before kick-off and a raffle to raise money for the current crop of Jimmies sporting teams will be drawn.  Food will be available in the way of a BBQ style hamburger and sausage sizzle at a reasonable price and drinks will be on sale via a cash bar.

The College hall will be open from 6pm, food available from 6.30pm and the game will be telecast in the hall from 8.10pm.  If you are interested in attending, have any queries regarding this event or have a suggestion for a possible nomination for the Jimmies Rugby League team of the Century then please contact me at or on mobile 0408 870 960.
