NBHS OBA ANNUAL DINNER

The Annual Reunion is a Dinner held at the City Hall, Newcastle on the second Saturday in August. At this function an exhibition of images from the 50 year class and 40 year class is presented. These groups usually make a special point of gathering members of their year, and arrange other events around the date of the dinner. Old Boys are usually grouped with people who started at the school in the same year, and are usually identified by the year that the whole group would have completed the Leaving or Higher School Certificates, whether the individual left that year or not.
