Donating To The Museum

 

St Joseph’s Nudgee College has over a century’s worth of traditions – from the classrooms, to the playing fields and regional and outback Australia, and to the trenches of the Western Front, the skies over war-torn Europe, and in politics and the law. Even the music from television series Dr Who has a Nudgee College connection.
 
The Nudgee College Museum, to be located on the first floor of the newly refurbished Treacy Building, seeks to be a living reminder of that history and to communicate it to past, present and future wearers of the blue and white.
 
The first phase was completed in July 2011 with the opening of the Rugby Room, which documents the achievements of the 32 Old Boys who have represented Australia in rugby union and rugby league. The magnificent cabinetry in this room now houses one of the largest privately owned collections of Australia rugby blazers in the country.
 
The main museum includes items as diverse as  military uniforms (including those belonging to Air Chief Marshal Sir Neville McNamara and Air Vice Marshal Ern Carroll), rare books, legal attire, College blazers and headwear with the boat that won Nudgee College’s inaugural Head of the River title to be inducted in late 2013.
 
The College invested $275,000 to return the dedicated museum area to its original glory  whilst the Nudgee College Foundation stepped forward with a $150,000 contribution to ensure the completion of this valuable project.
 
The Foundation continues to seek the support of those that have a passion for Nudgee College history and its archives to sponsor a cabinet or simply make a donation to help restore the many trophies, books, photos and College records to be held there.
