KELSTON OLD BOYS FOUNDATION
OLD BOYS BACKGROUND
After the Golden Jubilee 1954-2004 celebrations KBHS Old Boy Mr Ross Malcolm organised a committee group consisting of Old Boys to primarily show support and interaction through mid-year sports days.
Over many years several sport codes such as Rugby, Football, Hockey & Basketball have maintained their own links with Old Boys by holding games against KBHS premier teams, with Old Boys also giving their support and profile as coaches, fundraisers and links to the wider community.
By 2010 the Old Boys group extended support to senior students as guest speakers at leavers luncheons and created a Kelston Old Boys Association (KOBA) as a platform to organise events.
In 2014 Principal Mr Evans formed an Old Boys Alumni Committee to launch the Inaugural Distinguished Alumni Awards in 2015.
There is now a desire to formally move the Old Boys Association into a charitable trust for the benefit of past, present and future students and staff of KBHS.
The Kelston Old Boys Foundation Charitable Trust will work to build and maintain a strong capital base so we can continue to recognise and celebrate 'KBHS Brotherhood'.
The Kelston Old Boys Foundation will aim to assist the school with financial support for;
- Promoting fraternity and support networks between Old Boys and current students
- Student achievement and student hardship
- Facility development and improvement
OUR VISION ..... 'Changing Lives'
The Kelston Old Boys Foundation looks beyond the day-to-day running of the school and aspires that every Kelstonian feels a life-long connection through brotherhod with a vision focused on ....... "Changing Lives"
Calling all KBHS Old Boys to join us on Saturday 5th August for 'Old Boys Day'.
As Old Boys you are an important part of our DNA so come along and reminisce with old class mates & friends, enjoy friendly banter and generate new opportunities.
We will also honor year leavers of 1977 & 1997 to mark their respective 40 year & 20 year school milestone reunions so a special shout out to all '77' & '97' Old Boys to come along.
