NCOBA in 2014Posted: Sunday, 19 January 2014Posted: Sunday, 19 January 2014Old Boys of Nudgee,
As we embark on another year for the NCOBA , I would like to thank you, our members, for your support in 2013 and welcome you to continue with gusto in 2014. I have posted the NCOBA’s business plan for the year for those who are interested. It outlines our strategies and goals for the period and I encourage our membership to take ownership of our future by becoming more involved and supportive of the great Nudgee community to which we are privileged to belong.
I would also like to introduce Luanne Wishart who has been appointed as the Alumni Officer at Nudgee College. Luanne has already been a huge boost for us in providing administrative support and has indeed brought a fresh vibrancy with her to this new role. Luanne will be assisting in arranging and promoting our key events in 2014. I recommend that you keep your details up to date on our website to ensure that you are kept in the loop with our activities throughout the year.
I look forward to see as many of you as possible at some of our functions and events this year.
Best regards for 2014,
Class of 2013 - Congratulations and WelcomePosted: Saturday, 30 November 2013Posted: Saturday, 30 November 2013
The NCOBA welcomes its newest members from the Class of 2013. This year’s Seniors celebrated their Valedictory on Thursday 14th November. I was privileged to be able to address the men at the conclusion of the evening to officially mark their transition from student to Old Boy.I have drawn on the Class of 2013’s motto a few times this year in my correspondence. This year they set themselves the challenge to ‘be the difference’. Indeed in pursuit of this motto, the 2013 cohort are now among the most successful group to pass through our great school; they won GPS Championships in Rowing, Tennis, Rugby, Soccer and Track and Field. They were also runners up in Swimming and Cross Country. On behalf of the NCOBA I congratulate them on their success.
In the latter part of the year, Shane Steele, Tom McLellan and Alex King worked together in the Br Vince Connors Trade Training Centre on producing a Nudgee College Old Boys’ lectern which they have kindly donated to our Association as a memento of their induction to the NCOBA. This piece will be displayed proudly in the historic Macrossan Room of the Treacy Building.
The Hardy Family celebrated their 3rd generation of Old Boys at the Valedictory for the Class of 2013.
Congratulations and welcome to the Class of 2013,
Anthony Hart - President
