Old Boys

Formed in 1877, the Christ's College Old Boys' Association (CCOBA) aims to support College, foster the continued interest of Old Boys in their old school, and facilitate contact between them.

Frame 1 34


Christ's College Old Boys' Association (CCOBA) is an integral part of our College community. The Association is a worldwide network, made up of over 5,000 life members, with branches in Australia, London and throughout New Zealand.

We support College by providing scholarships for the boys, and over the years have raised funds that resulted in the building of the Memorial Dining Hall (1925), the enlargement and reconstruction of the Chapel (1957), and the Old Boys' Theatre (2000).

The current president of the CCOBA is Richard Polson (11785).

Membership of the Association is open to all boys who attended Christ’s College. You may not have joined CCOBA as a school leaver but it is never too late.
