Message from the ONU President

Friday, 27 July 2012 is one of the most important dates on the ONU Calendar for this year – it is the ONU Annual Event. This year the ONU has combined with the Newington Rugby Association Season Launch to jointly host what we know will be a very special event. I encourage all Old Boys to attend and by doing so you not only maintain your connection with this great school and your school mates, but also support our current boys as they receive their 2012 Rugby Jersey.

I look forward to seeing many Old Boys at this not-to-be-missed event – more details are provided on the ONU Events page.

Another feature of this eNewsletter is the recent visit to Tupou College.  Hon Secretary ONU, Karl Watson (ON ’86), was fortunate enough to accompany the tour.  To read more about this tour and get an insight into what happened in Tonga please read the full article under College News.

I am very pleased to announce that three Old Boys, Shane Rose (ON ’91), James Chapman (ON ’97) and James Clark (ON ’08) are representing Australia in the upcoming London Olympics.  Let’s all support these Old Boys as they persue their Olympic dreams.  To read more click here.

This edition also covers dates for upcoming reunions, what’s currently happening at Newington and lots more – I hope you enjoy reading this edition!

James Jordan (ON ’81)
ONU President
