It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of two St John's Old Boys and great men, John Vaemolo (class of 1980) and Paul Schollum (class of 1970).
Paul passed away peacefully at Totara Hospice on 22nd January 2024, aged 72, surrounded by his loving family. At St John's he was Head Boy in 1970 and was a wicket-keeper in the 1st XI cricket team.
John was John was arguably St John’s top athlete. He played in the SJC 1st XV rugby team in 1979 and 1980, was selected for the NZ SS Rugby team vs Australia in 1980 and was also an outstanding track runner:
Rest in Peace Paul and John - you will be missed.
