The Top Enders

The Top Enders first formed many years ago when four Old Boys, Geoffrey Bowell (OB 1948), Andy McGuigan (OB 1948), Roger Banks (OB 1947) and Andrew Macdougall (OB 1950) who all worked at the ‘top end’ of Collins Street, decided to meet for lunch on the last Thursday of every ‘even’ month.  

More than 60 years on, the lunches are now held in Brighton quarterly and the The Top Enders group has grown to 150+ members.  


The “Harry Zachariah Cricket Lunch” is held in February at the School overlooking the Crowther Oval to watch the 1st XI play their first home game of the year.

Term 2 and 3 lunches are held locally, most recently at the Newbay Hotel, and usually feature a guest speaker of interest.

The final lunch of the year is a Christmas Celebration where we welcome the Headmaster for a report on the year that was.

Top Enders lunches are open to all interested Old Boys.
