SBC Old Boys’ Association (SBCOBA)
A welcome from our Chair, Jim Nicolle, SBC 1974-1980
A new era begins at St Bernard's College. The Board of Trustees recently approved the formation of a new St Bernard's College Old Boys' Association. The Constitution was adopted in October 2014.
An Executive Committee has been formed and The Old Boys' are up and running again. The purpose of the Old Boys' Association is to:
- Support the college through Fellowship, Initiative and Investment.
- Support the students and especially in their transition from student to Old Boy
The term Old Boy has a new status at St Bernard's, not dissimilar to that of VIP. Old Boys are welcome at the College anytime and you will receive a warm reception. Although one is a student for a relatively short part of a lifespan, these students once passed through St Bernard's will remain an Old Boy of the College for Life!
This network is the hidden and untapped jewel of the College Community. What talent and wisdom is contained within this group. The new Association of Old Boys will bring this resource back within reach of the College to benefit the boys.
In order to grow the Old Boys' Association needs funding. Membership of the Old Boys' Association is just $40.00 per year [Life Membership is capped at $200.00] You may also like to know that 25% of the membership charge goes to the Old Boys' Scholarship fund and will be awarded to leavers each year as Marist Memorial life start scholarships to assist in the transition from the college to their next life journey.
