Theme - Runes

Runes, small stones, and pieces of bones bearing symbols with magical significance.

“Runes” historically served purposes of magic; it also describes the subtle but significant cornerstones that make up a heritage. SJC has been a historical landmark in Hong Kong for 148 years, renowned for our academic results and the unique architecture of the buildings. Yet, as we approach a new era, let us not forget all the small pieces and bricks that make up this sensational school — Josephians. For this reason, we are proud to announce this year’s theme — Runes. 

Present and former students of Saint Joseph’s always take pride in being Josephians. We are always prepared for changes within and beyond the school. Even in times of challenges, we, Josephians,  persevere and never fall. We are the glimmering stars who illuminate the places we go.

Runes is a perfect description of the roles Josephians carry throughout our lives, and towards our school. Like a cornerstone of a heritage, like tepid rain in a desert, complementing the glorious name of Saint Joseph’s College.

Sons of Saint Joseph’s valiant and true.
