Peter Scaife, Bill Storer and Dick Sanders

Formation of the NBHSOBA ... Instigated in 1986

On 9th December 1986, in a phone call between two old boys, Dale Kemp and Dick Sanders, it was decided to form the Newcastle Boys' High School Old Boys' Association (NBHSOBA).

The Steering Committee of ten met at the Newcastle Police Centre on 7th January1987.

The OBA was launched at the Police & Citizens' Boys' Club on 20th March 1987, where the inaugural committee was elected by the 93 former students and teachers present.

Four Sub-committees were agreed on:

* Membership
* Functions
* Education
* Historical
together with their members and Chairmen.

The goals of the Association were agreed on, becoming the basis for the Constitution.

Aims

The briefing notes circulated to the first Steering Committee meeting on 7 January 1987 listed the following aims:

- Share expertise between reunion committees.
- Maintain a master class list and mailing list.
- Annual dinner (all years), as per the NGHS Ex-Students Union.
- Relics, memorabilia: collect, restore, preserve, catalogue and display.
- Personal photographs, printed matter: copy and return.
- School relics (gates, honour rolls, flag etc): recover.
- School prizes, student donations: current status

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
