Liston College Navigation

Message from Steve Dooley, Principal 04.11.22

I believe boys need 3 essentials to thrive - community, love and aspiration. Without doubt, and within Liston tradition, we saw all three this week.

Whether it be:

  • heartfelt singing at our final school Mass, 
  • cheers of delight at the announcement of our 2023 Head Boy at prizegiving, 
  • a standing ovation for our 2022 Dux also at Prizegiving, 
  • the return school Hakas between our Y13 leavers and current Year 12s on their last day, 
  • or the impromptu singing of Mo Maria and the College song with all Year 13s locked in arms after their final farewell.  


… this week showed the character and soul within our community and it warmed the heart.


Congratulations to:

Head boy of 2023 - Simi Veatupu 

Deputy Head Boys for 2023 - Luigi Menoro, Jayshal Singh, Cedric Betham
