Old Boys and Friends

With a history spanning nearly 70 years, the Old Boys & Friends Association would like to encourage all Old Boys & Friends of St Edmund’s College to remain involved in the College community, attend College activities and stay in touch or locate lost friends.

Each year, Old Boys & Friends hosts three major community events with the support of the College: the Blue and White Ball, Heritage Round and Golf Day. More information can be found below.

Key Events 2024

  • Blue and White Ball
  • Heritage Round
  • Eddies Golf Day

We are excited to bring you three major events again this year with the support of the College. Everyone within the Eddies community is invited to these events, which are a great opportunity to get involved in the community, as well as meet new people. This year the Blue & White Ball and Heritage Round/Reunion Day will be held on the same weekend –  a great opportunity for the Eddies community to come together at both events.

Blue & White Ball  – 2 August 2024 at the Hotel Realm –

This is a fantastic night of entertainment for the Eddies community and gets bigger and better each year. We will promote the event on our social media pages, and in the College newsletter. Stay tuned for more information!

Heritage Round / Reunion Day – Saturday 3 August at St Edmund’s College

This event coincides with the Eddies v Marist rugby matches and is an opportunity to reflect on the heritage of the College, as well as a day that old boys are encouraged to attend and reunite. The day will commence with a Mass at 10am in the College Chapel. This will be followed by a morning tea at 11am and a tour of the College and an opportunity to watch the rugby.

Eddies Golf Day – Friday 2 November, Fairbairn Golf Club

This is a 9-hole four-person Ambrose event commencing with a complimentary lunch from 2pm and a 3pm shot-gun tee-off, followed by a presentation of prizes in the clubhouse from 5pm. No golfing experience is required, just a willingness to have fun.
