Old Scholars Association

An association of Adelaide High School Old Scholars has existed since 1911. The Old Scholars community are proudly responsible for maintaining that tradition.

Membership of the Association is open to the past students and staff of Adelaide High School, Adelaide Girls High School and Adelaide Boys High School.

The Association’s flagship event is the Annual Dinner, which is generally held in the in the middle of each year.

The Association also supports the School and school community by providing prizes, assistance with the Conversazione held each August, publication of the regular Old Scholars newsletter, and by organising lunches and other events.

Active membership is at the heart of the success of our Old Scholars Association and all Old Scholars are encouraged to continue their association with the School by joining the association and participating in its events.
