Regular main events
The Association runs several events each year which include:
1. Annual Reunion Dinners
There are currently three main gatherings during the course of each year. The Annual Old Collegians' Reunion Dinner has been held each year at the College for many years. In more recent times, an annual dinner by decade has been held for former students of the Boys’ School and a Reunion Dinner for former boarders and house staff is held at Bruce House.
These events are always well catered and well attended with invited guests, Trust Board members, and an interesting or controversial guest speaker.
2. Annual Overseas Reunions
For a number of years, Old Collegians based in London and Australia have gathered annually for dinner. The London reunion is hosted in Central London and attracts those living in the UK as well as those on their travels in June/July. In August, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane take it in turns to host a dinner, often associated with a major sporting event.
3. Annual Golf Days
Two golf days are held each year. All Old Collegians gather at an Auckland golf club in the final quarter of the year. This generally enjoys excellent participation so it pays to book early. Early in each new year, generally in February, former students of the Boys’ School also gather for a day of golf and camaraderie, also very well attended.
4. College Sports Awards
This dinner is sponsored by the Old Collegians' Association on behalf of the College to honour outstanding sportspeople at the College in all sporting codes. It is a highlight of the year for many students and their parents to see their endeavours honoured and rewarded. The Dux Ludorum is awarded to the highest sporting achiever. This event is held in November each year.
5. Girls’ School and Boys’ School Leavers' Dinner
These dinners are sponsored by the Old Collegians' Association on behalf of both the Boys’ School and the Girls’ School and are held in December each year for the Year 8 students and their parents.
5. Recent Old Collegians (ROCS)
Subsidised events are held each year for the younger set of Old Collegians who are either still at university or in the early stages of their careers. There is generally an event held in both Auckland and ‘Otago’ each year.
