History:

The Foundation was established in 1989 by College Old Boys John McKenna (Rockhampton, SBC Senior 1960), Ken Dooley (Yeppoon) and Peter McKenna and has raised almost $1 million for the College over nearly 30 years.  A copy of correspondence from 2002 records some of the Foundation’s work from that era.

More recently, the Foundation has focused its fundraising efforts on events:

  • The inaugural Foundation Race Day held at Keppel Park Yeppoon in August 2016.
  • The inaugural Foundation Golf Day held at Capricorn Resort in January 2017.
  • The inaugural Foundation Sportsman’s Dinner held at The Caxton Hotel in Brisbane in June 2017 to coincide with the Confraternity Shield rugby league carnival http://www.qissrl.sportzvault.com/  with Darren Lockyer as Guest Speaker.
  • The inaugural Foundation AGM Dinner held in Yeppoon in May 2017.
  • The annual Old Boys vs 1st XIII Rugby League Match
  • A series of regional Old Boy Dinners/Functions.
