Staff and students pay tribute to John Fahey

John Fahey Candle

Staff and students at Chevalier College have remembered former NSW Premier John Fahey at a school assembly on Friday.

Mr. Fahey graduated from the school back in 1958 having been a prefect, a leader in the college’s Young Catholic Society, captain of the First XI cricket team and a member of a much-acclaimed First XV rugby team.

All 42 of the college’s Home Rooms dedicated their prayers to Mr Fahey and his family.

A candle was also lit in his memory and placed inside the original 1885 Riversdale Chapel.
