The Nelson College Old Boys’ Association is an active and vital organisation with around 2000 members. The Association provides a valuable link between Old Boys and the College as well as support to individuals, groups and special initiatives to ensure that the future of Nelson College is a bright and prosperous one.
Members of the Executive of the Association meet monthly and Old Boys are involved at a regional level around New Zealand, with growing groups in many locations overseas.
Famous Old Boys include such eminent New Zealanders as Nobel Laureate Lord Ernest Rutherford and New Zealand Prime Ministers Sir Wallace Rowling and Sir Geoffrey Palmer. Former students have gone on to be leaders in education, business, academia, science, the church, performing arts and the military service, represent New Zealand in sport and other pursuits, and in several cases to represent other countries in their chosen fields.

The Bulletin magazine is published annually and this edition of the Bulletin may well be the last copy that is posted due to overwhelming postage costs and technological advances, it is just no longer feasible to print the 3000 copies of the Bulletin we produce and post each year. Please let us know your email so we can email you future editions firstname.lastname@example.org.
For future electronic editions we would still love to have any stories which you would like to share, updates on planned reunions or events, or any Old Boys’ news – it makes for a great read to have diverse stories.
