St Bede's College Old Boys Association
The Old Boys’ Association Annual General Meeting will be held via Zoom 26 April 2022, 6pm.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend and we will send the meeting link to you.
We are looking for some new Old Boys to join us, to help diversify the age range of our committee, and also the regions. You don’t need to be in Christchurch, you can zoom in to our monthly meetings, and when we have events in your area, it may be an opportunity to attend and represent the OBA. If you would like to register your interest in joining the committee and or would like further information, please email email@example.com
The St Bede's College Old Boys Association organises events and reunions that bring together former class mates, team mates or members of the wider Bedean community. Historically the main events have been the Annual Dinner, Annual Mass, Golf tournament, 40 year 1st XV reunion and 50 year reunion.
The Old Boys Association also undertakes a number of initiatives outside the social events. These undertakings reflect the guiding philosophies of the College and are very much 'good works,' generously supported by the Old Boys over past and present decades. These include:
- The Mission Fund established in 1963, supports Old Boys who are Priests and missionaries. Contributions to this fund have generally been in the form of voluntary donations from Old Boys who have been most generous to this cause.
- The War Memorial and 75th Jubilee Endowment Trust to support boys at the College.
- The Year 13 presentation of Old Boys ties has become a tradition on the last day of formal schooling for leavers. Old Boys donate a tie and it is presented to a Year 13 student.
After a timid year due to COVID 19 we are ready to drive some new events and initiatives going forward and would love to have some new members on our committee to assist with this. If this is of interest to you, and you are able to commit to a monthly meeting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, if you want to be involved but can’t commit to the Committee we are also looking for year group champions. To find out more contact email@example.com.
