FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ



THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT THE ASSOCIATION DIRECTORATE IS ASKED REGULARLY



1. I'M NOT ENTIRELY SURE IF I AM A LIFE MEMBER - HOW TO I VERIFY THAT I AM?

The Association has often found that Members who completed their schooling many years ago, can't be sure if they in fact signed up for Life-Membership. If you are unsure, e-mail chairman@pbhsob.com or complete our automated contact system on the contact us page and the Directorate will check the database. We will get back to you with the information as soon as possible.

2. I'M LOOKING FOR OLD SCHOOL FRIENDS - CAN WE PUT THE DATABASE ON THE WEBSITE

Due to the Protection of Information Act, and the common occurrence of spam associated to online contact details, the Association Directorate is unable to publish the Association Database. Should you need specific contact details, e-mail reunions@pbhsob.com or complete our automated contact system on the contact us page and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

3. WHY ARE CERTAIN ITEMS IN THE REGALIA SECTION ONLY AVAILABLE TO LIFE-MEMBERS

The traditional 'Old Boys Tie' and other associated merchandise has since the inception of the Association been for members only. The merchandise aims not at identifying an 'Old Boy' but rather a conscious decision  to accept membership to the Pretoria Boys' High School Old Boys' Association. If you would like to purchase regalia and currently not an Association member - simply include membership in your order. Please remember to include all your details and payment receipts.

4. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD BOYS ASSOCIATION AND THE OLD BOYS CLUB

The Pretoria Boys' High School Old Boys' Association is only open to individuals who have served at least one day of schooling at Pretoria Boys' High School. Membership to the Association mimics that of a fraternity, in that you are part of a collective organisation of members, with a common interest - Pretoria Boys' High School.

The Pretoria High School Old Boys' Club is the physical club premises and home of the Association. Membership is open to any individual both male and female. Memberships are paid yearly and revolve around the interest of sport and social activities. The Club belongs entirely to the Association, with each Association Life-Member owning a share in the property.
