TSS treasures the ongoing involvement of its past students and yearly hosts the very popular and unique TSS Old Boys’ Weekend, helping alumni to reconnect with their peers throughout special events held both on and off campus. The weekend commences with a formal Older Old Boys’ Assembly providing an opportunity for current students to pay tribute to those who came long before them; as well as a variety of reunion events; and culminates in the Home GPS fixtures. Many memories are shared, and old friendships rekindled over this eagerly anticipated weekend.
We have over 18,500 Old Boys registered, with almost 16,000 recorded as living. TSS’ Oldest Old Boy is 103-year-old WWII veteran Joffre Bell who lives in Clifton, Qld. A passionate past student, Joffre has fond memories of his time at TSS. He first stepped foot on the grounds as an 11-year-old in 1932, where he joined McKinley House, and was one of just 100 boys in the school – all of whom were residing in the TSS Clocktower building.
