Thomas More College


Past Pupils History

The origins of the Past Pupils’ Association can be traced back to 1973. Since co-education was not to come until 1975, it was the Thomas More Old Boys’ Association that was formed with the dual aim of fostering relations between the Old Boys and the School, and amongst the Old Boys themselves. After 1976, when the first girls matriculated, the scope of the Association was broadened. Glen Bruton was the first chairman. In later years, the chairman was co-opted onto the School Board. Rob Brislin and Dunstan Farrell, both lawyers, served in this capacity. Among achievements of those days were the forming of Cricket and Hockey Clubs, two teams in each case, and the establishment of a Clubhouse in an old building, more or less on the site of the present Savory Pavilion. In the 80’s and early 90’s, the Association was struggling but things changed circa 1998, when the Robin Savory Pavilion was built. This magnificent amenity came under the control of the Thomas More Past Pupils’ Association and is administered by that body, needless to say in close co-operation with the School. The Pavilion apart, the Association is active in several spheres, and under the energetic leadership of the present chairperson, Melanie Küster, it is flourishing. Water polo and Cycling Clubs have since been added, with the door always open for additional sporting and or cultural disciplines. The Moorcock Chronicle, sent to everyone on the database, serves both as a mouthpiece for the Past Pupils and as a link with the School. The Association co-hosts the annual Past Pupils’ Association Day.

Your Future is Co-ed

The advantages of co-education lie in the fact that pupils are taught to naturally interact with each other from an early age. Children do better socially if they are educated in mixed groups. Regardless of who they are or what they wish to be, students build friendships and develop their intellect knowing they are valued. They leave Thomas More College with the skills and resources they need to succeed in the world, a world where co-ed is real life.
