We are very pleased to confirm that the Induction of the Class of 2022 into the ranks of the MCOBA will take place on Thursday the 13th of October 2022.
This year will be a little different – you’re all invited!
In honour of our 125th year, we invite our Old Boys to join us on the night of Induction, to welcome our newest members, and to enjoy the evening together. Drinks and delicious curry and rice on sale. Tickets will be sold for food in advance.
Whilst full details of the event will be shared in due course, we need your help with two items:
This specific initiative is aimed at connecting our older generation of OCs with the youth. We will print your name and year on the back of the tie which you sponsor. This will be allocated to a matric boy at random by the MCOBA. Each boy will then be encouraged to connect with their sponsor, to say thank you and to hopefully exchange stories and experiences at the next Reunion and onwards.
The idea is to forge a connection between current OCs and new members which you do not know. The MCOBA office will help to facilitate this introduction by providing your contact details and supporting the boys to get in touch.
OC fathers, brothers and grandfathers will of course be welcome to handover a tie in person on the night.
We want to show the Class of 2022 that being part of the Old Boy brotherhood is incredibly valuable. Many of you got ahead in life because another Old Boy gave you a gap, or helped you in some way. Let us know (in however much detail you choose!) so that we can share these inspiring messages with our newest members to strengthen our ties and to build a stronger network.
For the last two years, every single tie was sponsored and this was an incredible achievement. This year, there are 266 Matrics and we challenge the MCOBA to once again sponsor all ties for the incoming Old Boys of 2022.
Orders must be finalised by the end of this month, so please act now to be a part of this great initiative.
