The Old Armidalians’ Union – formerly called the TAS Old Boys’ Union – is the official alumni organisation of The Armidale School and for more than a century has maintained a continuing association with and contributed to, the welfare of TAS. The Union keeps alive within the TAS community the spirit, ethos and traditions of the School as well as preserving amongst former students the friendships and contacts they forged during their time at TAS.

The OAU works hard to enable its members to keep in touch with their friends and the overall school community, whilst at the same time contributing in many ways to the  life of the School. This encompasses everything from the annual TAS Reunion Weekend, organising sporting competitions between Old Armidalians and the School, invitations to school activities and functions, and to working bees and fundraising for specific projects.

The service of former students to their school and country is honoured and recognised right across the School, from the war memorial honour boards in Big School and the War Memorial Assembly Hall (itself a project of the then OBU), the construction of White House and the Chapel Lych Gate, funding for the TAS Hoskins Centre, and for scholarships and bursaries.

Becoming a member of the OAU makes you a lifelong member of a network of former students from TAS, and more broadly, our fellow GPS schools.
