THE classrooms of John Paul College brought them together and in the years since their graduations, a common desire to stay connected and help others in the community has been the bond between the JPC Old Boys.

The collective of former students each year stages a reunion that serves as a fundraiser for worthy causes close to the heart of the school community.

This year Emma Hoad and her family will benefit from proceeds raised from the reunion to be held on Saturday, December 28, at the Coast Hotel from 2pm.

JPC Old Boys spokesman Nathan Stride said the reunion committee had been moved by the fundraising effort of Emma's brother Ken to assist his family modify their home to accommodate Emma's needs.

"The JPC Old Boys have previously been able to donate $1500 each to Martin Howle from Nambucca Heads from the class of 95 who was diagnosed with brain cancer over 10 years ago and Michael George of Jondaryn, Queensland, from the class of 96 who has a nerve condition that kept him virtually bed-ridden for over three years."
