Old Boys News
Welcome to 2015 Old Boys!
The Old Boys' database is continuing to be a work in progress, and thank you to those of you who have recently notified me of changes to email addresses. Those have been updated. As of this year, we have an option on the database to record that you were one of our celebrated 'Hostel Boys'. HBHS on its current site will be 60 years old this year. There will be a series of smaller reunions, largely organised by Old Boys themselves. If you are interested in being part of one of these for your era, or would like help to arrange one, please get in touch with us.
We still have copies of the Centennial Book, which can be purchased from us, for $20 plus postage. Please get in touch if you would like one. They can also be picked up from the front office.
If you haven't registered our on-line database, then please do. Your name and year of enrolment should already be uploaded but we won't have address and contact details unless you put them in. Data Protection laws make our Old Boys' really hard to find so we rely on your staying in touch, and letting us know changes of address or telephone numbers. It is sad to hear of people missing reunions that they may have enjoyed, because we simply couldn't contact them.
If you would like to read a copy of our termly newsletter High Achiever online, go to our website, and in the list on the left, you will find 'Current Newsletter' as the bottom tab. Click on that, and it will appear. It is a great way of keeping up to date with events, achievements and news at Boys' High. If you would like a hard copy of the newsletter and haven't been receiving one, please contact us and that can be arranged easily.
Please note that all Priority 4 enrolment enquiries must go to firstname.lastname@example.org and not come directly to Archives/ Old Boys.
Feel free to contact me with any database problems or if you have any other news. Office hours are 8.30 - 1.00 Monday to Thursday during term time. If you are passing, please pop in for coffee.
