The OAU works very 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 for the benefit of present and future students at TAS. This encompasses everything from year reunions to annual OBU weekends, invitations to School activities and functions, and to working bees (and fundraising) forspecific projects for the well-being of the School. A very successful Old Boys’ Union project was the magnificent Lych Gate at the entrance to the Chapel.

The objectives of the Union are:

  • To promote the best interests of the School having regard to its traditions as a Great Public School and to cooperate with the School Board, the Headmaster, the TAS Foundation and the P&F Association to maintain an active association of Old Boys and Old Girls of The Armidale School
  • To hold reunions and other functions
  • To arrange and effect sporting contests with the School
  • To provide for the distribution of Binghi to members of the Union
  • To cooperate with the NEGS Old Girls’ Union and Unions of other Schools in matters of common interest
  • To establish and maintain in memory of Old Armidalians scholarships and bursaries tenable at the School.

The Union also elects Old Armidalians to the School Board and appoints Old Armidalians as ‘O’ Category members to the School Membership group. All members of the OAU are encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting where the Office Bearers and the Committee are elected. The Committee manages the affairs of the Union.
