A casual lunch with around five old boys led to the group deciding that this type of reunion should be fostered. Claude E Mann received the approval of the then Headmaster and Johannesburg College of Old Boy’s Society was formed. Those close ties with what is to day King Edward VII School, remain paramount to our creed to day.
From such small acorns, the Society as we know it to day boast some ten sub clubs, and is no doubt the leading Old Boys club in Gauteng, if not the country.
The Society has produced Springboks in all the major sports, administrators who have gone on to be at the helm of their respective sports at International level, as well as many captains of Commerce and Industry have represented the Society.
We offer members outstanding facilities for sport and the all important social side is accommodated with facilities for catering, Conferences and Group meetings.
We stand and believe in the traditions, ethos and principals of what our School, King Edward VII, stands for. We strive to nurture and protect our proud traditions and great legacy.
