Norm Rodgers, who was elected President in 2014, invites you to join the NBHS OBA.
" The Newcastle Boys’ High School Old Boys’ Association was established in 1987, some ten years after the school, as we knew it, was closed.
The OBA has three aims:
- To facilitate reunions of former students & staff of the school
- To collect & safeguard memorabilia of the school
- Through scholarship encourage academic & citizenship excellence in selected schools
The Annual Reunion is a Dinner held at the City Hall, Newcastle on the second Saturday in August. At this function an exhibition of images from the 50 year class and 40 year class is presented. These groups usually make a special point of gathering members of their year, and arrange other events around the date of the dinner. Old Boys are usually grouped with people who started at the school in the same year, and are usually identified by the year that the whole group would have completed the Leaving or Higher School Certificates, whether the individual left that year or not.
Through the investment of membership fees, donations and income from the sale of ties, badges etc the OBA has developed a financial base that allows the award of scholarships at three Newcastle schools. I invite you to join the NBHS Old Boys’ Association.
