Message from the President
26 March 2020
In light of the escalation of COVID-19 in the community and subsequent restrictions implemented by the Federal and State Governments, and in the best interest of the safety and welfare of the entire Old Boys’ community and their families, College staff and students, the OBU Committee has decided that all Old Boy events and activities will be suspended indefinitely, effective immediately.
Any events, including reunions planned for April through July inclusive, will be cancelled or postponed and all tickets purchased will be refunded in full in the coming days.
Tickets for reunions scheduled for Saturday 1 August will be suspended until further notice. If you have registered for a reunion on 1 August and would like a refund, please contact the Alumni Office on (02) 9391 7606 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OBU acknowledges that advice and the current situation has, and can change rapidly, and as the situation evolves, we will continue to monitor, and act accordingly throughout the remainder of 2020.
There is no doubt there will be a time, hopefully in the near future, that this virus will pass and restrictions will be lifted and we can get back to our normal lives. However in the meantime, I hope you can appreciate and support our directive and I look forward to catching up with many of you once this blows over.
Again, I wish you and your families all our best wishes through this uncertain time, please stay safe and look after the people around you.
For further information or clarification, please contact Aaron Averay, Alumni Manager on (02) 9391 7606 or myself via email@example.com.
Mr Mathew Collett ('86)
Old Boys' Union President
