Our Union

The Old Boys’ Union was established to maintain contact between Old Boys, to keep them informed of Rondebosch news and activities and to support the Rondebosch Boys’ Schools.


Mr Michael Reeler, President of the Old Boys’ Union, sadly died on 14 June 2021. This was his message to Old Boys & others who visit this site.

It is my great privilege to welcome you to the Rondebosch Old Boys’ Union, which has over 8,000 members. It exists mainly to foster the relationship between the alumni of our great schools and to disseminate information about the schools, including activities and achievements, to its members and other interested parties.

The world we live in is an extremely complex place and the life of most individuals is swept up almost entirely with family, work and other calls upon our time, so it is very easy to lose touch with our alma mater. The Rondebosch Old Boys’ Union will help you to stay connected with friends made during your time at school, keep you informed of their whereabouts and activities, advise you of union and school activities and encourage you to remain in contact by way of newsletters, Facebook, reunions, sub-unions and numerous other events.

I encourage you to stay connected to make our Union a stronger and even more relevant organisation. Please, if you are in the area, visit the Old Boys’ Union & Heritage Centre at the High School – you will find it a most rewarding experience.

With warm good wishes,

Altius et Latius

Mike Reeler
