St Brendan's College is renowned for the strength of its Old Boy community. The friendships and bonds that many St Brendan's College students make in their time here often last a lifetime.
In recent years, momentum has grown, with the College and key SBC community members spearheading a strong focus on connection and communication with Old Boys of the College.
The main vehicle of communication for our SBC Old Boy community currently is The Bindi-Eye Newsletter, produced by Old Boys' Coordinator Brother Kevin Smith, which helps to keep people in touch and find out about upcoming events. Please visit our Bindi-Eye & Old Boy News Page to find out about news and successes of our SBC Old Boys. Br Kev welcomes both content and financial contributions to support the ongoing publication of the Bindi-Eye. Please contact Br Kev via the SBC Old Boys Association at KSmith@sbc.qld.edu.au.
Each year regular gatherings of SBC Old Boys across the decades are held around Queensland along with reunions at the College. To find out about upcoming reunions please visit our SBC Reunions Page. We encourage Old Boys organising a reunion to get in touch with us and provide information for the information of the SBC community.
A group of committed Old Boys have also spearheaded the new SBC Old Boys Foundation and invite past students and friends of the College to join the Foundation to continue to support the growth of the SBC Old Boy community.
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.
More recently, the Foundation has focused its fundraising efforts on events:
We encourage SBC Old Boys and friends of the College to get involved in the many number of events spearheaded by the Foundation. Information about past and upcoming events can be found at the SBC Old Boys Foundation Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/sbcoldboys/
Membership of the Foundation is open to any person who is proposed/seconded by an existing member (Rule 11 of the Constitution) and accepted by the Foundation Board of Directors. The membership fee in 2018 is $100.
We encourage membership by all Old Boys and SBC community members, and anyone wishing to be admitted as a member should send an e-mail with contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
