Events start with a golf day and dinner on Friday 17th April at Harborne Golf Club. I hope that this will be an opportunity for Old Boys from across the generations to meet in a relaxing environment on the course or at the three course meal in the evening. You do not need to be a golfer to join us at the event. The club will be open throughout the day for Old Boys to call in and we are especially keen to attract non-playing Old Boys to the meal.
The association decided we would not hold a black tie formal event, but we hope this evening event will provide an opportunity for Old Boys to dine and socialise together, recounting memories of their prep school days. The dress code will be lounge suits and WHOBA ties will be a must. A new Old Boys’ tie, commemorating 125 years, will be available in the New Year.
The cost of golf and dinner will be £55.00 per person.
Should you wish to attend the dinner only, please contact the school by registering your interest below.
The main summer event is an open day at the school on Sunday 28th June. The school will be open from 12noon until 4.00pm with a marquee on the Headmaster’s lawn serving afternoon tea. The whole of the school site will be open displaying short biographies of some past “famous” pupils, including the wonderful displays previously put together by Alison Houghton covering those who served during the First World War.
I really hope Old Boys, especially those that have not been back to the school for many years, will enjoy walking the school grounds, reminiscing about their school life and also seeing for themselves the wonderful facilities the school now offers to its pupils.
Entertainment in the form of live music will be played throughout the afternoon and will include the school bands.
For those who wish to make rather more of the occasion, there will be a bar serving beer and wines and a barbeque.
Followed in the afternoon with a service at St Philip’s Cathedral
Please join the current school for The Act of Remembrance. The school will be open to Old Boys from 9.30am with an invitation to attend the Remembrance Service in the Duce Hall and to take part in the Act of Remembrance. Teas and coffees will be available.
All Old Boys are then invited to join the school at St Philip’s Cathedral in the city centre for a service celebrating the school’s 125 years. The service will start at 2.30pm and I hope afterwards Old Boys will be able to form informal groups for chats and drinks in the city.
