Old Collegians

The Whitefriars Old Collegians Association was formally incorporated on February 23, 1999.

The Association assists in the continuance and growth of fellowship amongst past students and offers a support structure as the base for a wide variety of activities which help to build the Carmelite community.

Support for individual groups like the Whitefriars Football Club (since 1986) and the Old Whitefriars Cricketers (since 2006) remain strong and new groups based around sport, artistic endeavours and social justice are always welcome.

A detailed strategic plan has been developed for the Association which also lists a number of other goals including promotion of business relationships between Old Collegians, advancement of the College and provision of practical assistance for student transition from secondary to tertiary education or employment.

The Whitefriars Old Collegians Association takes pleasure in inviting past students of the College of all ages to become members and join in this initiative.

If you are a past student, this Association has been formed for you. Come and join with us to help make a vibrant and successful organisation.

We look forward to your involvement.
