Old Boys’ Muster

Amidst relentless downpours that persisted for 12 hours straight, the return of the Old Boys’ Muster at the College stood as a testament to resilience and camaraderie. Despite nature’s adversity, over 50 brave Old Boys’ answered the call, lending their presence to an event marked by warmth and reminiscence.

The gathering captivated tales of reconnection spanning more than five decades, and accounts of returnees stepping foot on familiar grounds after an absence of over forty years. Notably, the arrival of an Old Boy all the way from New Zealand underscored the profound bond shared among our alumni, transcending geographical barriers.

With the greatest appreciation, we extend our sincerest thanks to each attendee on behalf of the WCOBU. Your presence imbued the evening with a sense of unity and nostalgia, making it truly unforgettable.

Looking ahead, we anticipate with excitement our next gathering: Back to Queens Park on the 10th of August. Join us as we rally behind our 1st XV Rugby team in their clash against Trinity.

Let us come together to cheer on our alma mater and revel in the shared joy of victory. Details for the post-match reunion will follow shortly.


Waverley College Old Boys’ Union


2023 Back to Waverley Day

On 2 November we celebrated ‘Back to Waverley Day,’ and welcomed our alumni who graduated 50 years or more ago. It was nice to honour our graduates from the year 1973.

We always look forward to welcoming Old Boys back to our growing campus, and this year we had 110 Old Boys from the years 1950-1973 in attendance.

We also had the pleasure of seeing our Pasifika Group perform the Sasa (Samoa) and Haka (New Zealand) on stage. The performance was enjoyed by past and present students, as well as our invited Pasifika families and extended families.
