National President’s Message

Kevin O'Sullivan —

It is my pleasure to extend greetings to all Timaru High School Old Boy’s in this first of our Quarterly newsletters for 2022.

We continue to keep looking for ways to keep in contact with the Old Boy community. Great work has been undertaken over the past several years to keep in contact and develop networks. This newsletter is a further such attempt.

A THSOBA Facebook page has been established and has currently has 365 members. I confidently predict that we will have over 500 Old Boy’s connected to School and Old Boy news by the end of the year. I suggest you join us soon.

In this newsletter there will focus on the past and present TBHS happenings. A good number of you will be aware that we have our first Old Boy Prime Minister. In November 2021 Siaosi Sovalini became the P M of Tonga. He had a distinguished final year at TBHS in 1988.

Rector, Dave Thorpe, will bring you current school news. Looking back we will note achievers and events from the past and look forward to School events in 2022. The importance of ‘the school beyond the gate’ [Bill Thomas] is always to the fore in the business of the Old Boy’s Association. Best wishes to you all.

Kevin O’Sullivan
