As an Old Boy (1987-88) our school is close to my heart. I have inherited a dynamic teaching/learning environment.
It cannot be overstated how significant your support and donations are to the boys and to the school. I am very pleased to report that in my short time here the Foundation has contributed financially to two projects: the restoration and revamping of the tennis courts and the purchase of a new school van. This will directly benefit the education of our boys.
Otago Boys’ High School students past, present and in generations to come benefit from the generosity of those who have gone before. The continued support from our Old Boys’ has a direct impact on the lives of our students and their families.
Should you wish to donate to your old school, please click on the DONATE button below. This will take you to a secure Pay Pal site where you are able to make a donation using your credit card. Donations by cheque can be sent to Otago Boys’ High School Foundation, PO Box 11, Dunedin 9054.
Your support is of enormous benefit to the school and will mean we can provide assistance to boys in facilities for current and future students. However, you choose to contribute, your active kindness and willing service to Otago Boys’ is valued and appreciated.
Otago Boys’ is perfectly positioned for change, perfectly positioned to grow, perfectly positioned to lead the education of young men in New Zealand.
From the Rector – Mr Richard Hall
The Otago Boys’ High School Foundation established the Sir Archibald McIndoe Bequest Society in July 2007. Archibald McIndoe attended Otago Boys from 1914 to 1918 and after training at the Otago Medical School, he worked at the famed Mayo Clinic in the United States before embarking on his epic and pioneering journey – repairing the bodies (and the minds) of the Allied Forces burns victims during the Battle of Britain.
Sir Archibald’s daughter, Mrs Vanora Marland, is alive and well in London and is very pleased the Foundation has chosen to honour one of the great medical men of the 20th Century in such a manner. She writes her father was ‘immensely proud of his New Zealand roots’ and she is ‘delighted that his old school should celebrate him in this way’.
Strong and successful Foundations have vibrant Bequest Societies and we see this as another major step forward in the quest to protect the history of Otago Boys’ High School by paving a pathway into the future. The Foundation has a vision of playing a pivotal role in the growth and development of the school over the next 100 years and beyond.
All alumni along with former Rectors and Masters will be invited to join in the venture. Every member of the Foundation Board, as well as being a financial contributor to the Foundation, has committed to the Bequest Society and all friends of the school will also be given the chance to take up this membership option.
As with all memberships, the Foundation will recognise those who commit to the Sir Archibald McIndoe Bequest Society during the course of their lifetime and then on in perpetuity. If you wish to receive the Bequest Society booklet, which outlines some of the options available to those considering making a bequest, please make contact with the Foundation office (64 3 477 2546 or [email protected]).
