The Ipswich Grammar School Old Boys’ Association has been an important part of the school community since its inauguration in 1907. The first president was a recognised Old Boy Thomas Bridson Cribb, who was one of the first 16 students who commenced at the school in 1863. After over 100 years of the Association being independent of the school the decision was made in 2015 by mutual agreement that the school would help to manage the Old Boys’ activities. To ensure that the Old Boys best interests were the priority a ‘Working Group’ was established with ten Old Boys’ representing a variety of different cohorts. Over the years this group has welcomed new individuals and made the decision to reinvigorate the IGSOBA and begin anew. At an Annual General Meeting held by the Old Boys at Foundation Day celebrations 2019, a new Constitution was passed and an established Council elected heralding a new era for the Old Boys.
The Old Boys’ Council has been a valuable asset with their commitment to building on the established network of current Old Boys activities and relationships moving forward. The assistance of the Headmaster and IGS Marketing team also provides a dedicated support role and has been invaluable in developing and implementing the concepts of the Council.
