John Calopedis showing his batting expertise on Illawarra Oval
"The Calopedis children attended Nowra Public School and Nowra Intermediate High School. Mary and Helen were often called upon to work in the cafe when short staffed and Joan Monaghan also volunteered at times seated behind the cash register.
John Calopedis was captain of the school and proved to be quite a sportsman. He and Nicholas were good swimmers, and won several school swimming events.
John played cricket at school and was a member of the Nowra Cricket Club and also represented the State in the under 17 side on several occasions".
