The body of former students, covering almost all of this century, has a wide range of professional and personal experience from which we could all draw, to our individual benefit, and that of Newcastle.
By the time the Constitution was drafted, the following important aim was added:
" To solicit, acquire, establish, administer and award gifts, bequests, scholarships, prizes and benefits for students of Newcastle High School and Waratah High School and such other schools as the Association from time to time may determine."
The Constitution was modified on incorporation of the Association.
