Rathkeale Old Boys' Events
Annual Leavers' Dinner
Each year the boys leaving the College are invited to attend a special dinner, hosted by ROBA and held in the College Dining Hall. The event features an introduction to the activities of the Old Boys' Association and includes a guest speaker. Members of the Old Boys' Executive and other Old Boys and long serving staff also attend.
Next event: 2020 Leavers Dinner, Date TBC.
ROBA Annual General Meeting
An important aim of the Association is the fostering of social interaction between members and particularly between Old Boys. A number of regional sub-committees exist, and Auckland and Wellington have successfully hosted annual events for a number of years.
Any Old Boy who wishes to facilitate such events will readily be assisted by the Association who can provide contact details as held on the ROBA database and who may, as appropriate, underwrite such events.
ROBA is always pleased to hear from any Old Boys who are interested in playing a role in such activities.
