Old Boys' Association
The Old Boys' Association is an active body and has since its foundation in 1917 contributed much to the development of the School. The Association is an independent organisation, administered by a committee of old boys who are elected on an annual basis. The committee is responsible for the running of the Association and the achievement of its objectives.
