Nelson College Old Boys Events

Nelson College Old Boys Events

Each year the NCOBA provides plenty of opportunities for our Old Boys to get together, catch up with old friends, reminisce over old times and keep themselves connected with their local contacts.  

Events are held locally, nationally and internationally and range from popping in to say hi, supporting your old favourite sports teams and joining us for a drink or dinner at branches around the country.

Depending on the event, invitations are sent via our Old Boys’ Facebook page, or by email in our termly newsletter, or on this page.  Make sure your contact details are up to date so you don’t miss out on the next one!

Visit the NCOBA Facebook page for full details.

If you are organising a reunion somewhere in New Zealand or in one of the many countries around the world that our Old Boys currently reside in, let us know so that we can advertise your event on our Facebook page. It is about reconnecting with your alma mater, re establishing friendships and reliving great school memories.

Don’t forget to send us your photos!

When old school mates get together the years disappear and stories are told as though they happened only yesterday…
