The 学校 places great importance on maintaining the connection with its past pupils, and strongly encourages students, 当他们离开, to become members of the 老男孩’ Association (OBA). This was formed in 1912 and aims to provide support for the 学校 and a continuing link for past students throughout New Zealand, the Pacific and indeed throughout the world.

OBA已经, through the years, contributed freely of its time, energy and finance to provide many fine buildings and amenities for the benefit of students, thus enhancing the 学校. These improvements include the Memorial Gates, the Memorial Music Block, Swimming Pool Complex, 体育馆, and Gully Pavilion, plus many other forms of assistance including an annual grant to the 校长’s Fund, disbursed at the discretion of the 校长, for the benefit of all students.

The OBA over the years has organised many major functions; the 50th, 75th, 85th, Centennial and 110th Jubilees, in addition to many other pleasant social functions within the 学校 and throughout the country. These sometimes coincide with major 学校 fixtures in Wellington, 汉密尔顿, 奥克兰, Palmerston North, 和新普利茅斯.

第一次老男孩

During UP for 2014, (UP stands for ‘Utility Period’ in which students choose an extra-curricular option to participate in), 理查德野生, the Head of History, mindful that 2014 was the anniversary of the advent of World War I, created a new activity which involved conducting research on our old boys who died fighting in World War I. 9名学生, as well as Ms Gibbons, the 图书馆 Manager, used Taranakians and online databases to create profiles of each of the men whose names appear on our Memorial Gates.

It made heart-breaking reading as many joined the army straight from 学校 and were unaware of what lay in store. Many had written letters of thanks for the care packages sent to them, along with a copy of the current Taranakian. These letters included anecdotes of life in the army and news of other old boys they had caught up with, which were then published in the next edition of the Taranakian.

In 2015, they continued to research these men, hopefully bringing them to life with personal information gleaned from the Taranakian. As you can imagine, our 学校 magazines from this period are now quite fragile and a project to digitise and make them available to the wider community is being investigated.
