The Old Boys' Association and the School host various activities every year. The activities are aimed at reinforcing the bond between the Association and the School, as well as between Old Boys. Check in regularly to see what is happening in your area, and make sure that your contact details are updated to receive important notifications and newsletters regarding Association events.
ANNUAL OLD BOYS' DINNER
The Association hosts an annual Old Boys' Dinner at the School, which is commonly considered as the main event of the year. Traditionally the Dinners have featured interesting guest speakers and it is important to get tickets for the event as early as possible, to avoid disappointment. Tickets must preferably be paid for in advance. For more information and booking
The Association often undertakes Fundraising initiatives for the purpose of gaining funds for The School, The Association and other worthy causes.
ANNUAL OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION GOLF DAY
Traditionally at least one Association Golf Day is held every year. The golf day usually forms part of the annual Founders Day weekend, followed by a prize giving dinner. Occasionally additional golf days are arranged to support The School or Association initiatives in fundraising.
OLD BOYS' FRIDAY AND THUNDERGUN LUNCH CLUBS
On every third Friday of every month, all Old Boys are invited to the Friday Lunch Club at Hofmeyr Park, the Old Boys' Club. You'll have a chance to meet up with Old School friends and Masters from all eras, while a more mature group of dedicated Old Boys regularly hold a Lunch Club at the Thundergun restaurant in Johannesburg. For more details please contact the Association.
During the beginning of every year, The School hosts an Old Boys vs. The School Summer Sports Day, competing in Cricket, Cross-Country and Waterpolo. Occasionally other sports are also included. The event is then followed by an informal social gathering of Old Boys at the P.H.S.O.B Club.
10, 20, 30,40 Year On Reunion Dinners as well as a 50 & 60 Year On Reunion Lunch occur annually. Traditionally the Head Boy from each year, in collaboration with the Association, is responsible for the organising of the event.
The Association AGM allows for the election of Association Directors for the upcoming year and enables Association members that are present to peruse account statements or ask questions. Association members interested in the administration of the Association are encouraged to attend.
ASSOCIATION BRANCH ACTIVITIES
Association Branches in all South African Provinces and internationally host regular social gatherings. For more information contact the Branch Liaison in your area or the Association.
The Association holds an annual cocktail party in the beginning of the year, welcoming staff back to The School and success of the upcoming year.
BEER WITH THE BOSS
The Association hosts a yearly event at the Old Boys Club to welcome all new Association members to the fraternity. The beer with the Boss is only open to individuals who have accepted membership to the Association before they have fininshed their last official day at the School.
Old Boys are also invited to attend other events hosted by The School such as sports events, The Founders Day Weekend Celebrations and the Remembrance Day Service. These are hosted by The School and will be communicated in the e-phobian newsletter and in the Calendar.
