This short video by Robert Redfern of JCH at the 2014 Rowing Regatta will give you a small taste of the community spirit that surrounds our events, as well as the passion and excitement that our students have for everything they participate in.

Professor Gillian Triggs, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission and alumna of JCH, was the guest of honour at our Leadership Dinner on 22 August 2014. Professor Triggs spoke on the need for courageous leadership for a more inclusive society to a full-capacity audience, which included college fellows, council members, staff and students of JCH as well as our guests from high schools.
