About the OIU
The Old Ignatians’ Union was officially established in 1897 with the aim of sustainaing and strengthening the connection Old Boys have with each other, and with the Saint Ignatius' College, Riverview.
Members can connect with eachother in various ways. There are Old Ignatians' Sports Clubs. Class and Country Reunions and the OIU Annual Dinner provide Old Boys with an opportunity to re-connect with lost classmates, continue long-lasting friendships, and make new ones. There are also opportunities for members to forge business connections and establish mentoring partnerships.
There are many ways for Old Boys to connect with the College, and it is hoped that this site will extend and enrich such connections. We welcome your participation, and thank you for your involvement in our association. For more information about any of the above activities please contact us.Latest News

YouCan tooPosted: Friday, 20 June 2014Imagine a spectacle where 350 teams adventure across 12,0000km, 18 countries, five deserts and three mountain ranges, all in 41 days! The Mongol Rally is an annual car rally that begins in the United Kingdom and finishes in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. Not a traditional race, the rally is designed as an adventure, and participants raise money for a chosen charity. Damian Le Brocque (OR2008) will participate as in this year’s rally with two friends—the Fine Line team—raising money for the all important YouCan campaign, an initiative of the Sony Foundation that helps to build youth cancer centres across the country.

Introducing MasterClass 2014 - feat. Cate BlanchettPosted: Thursday, 12 June 2014
Introducing MasterClass 2014 - feat. Cate BlanchettPosted: Thursday, 12 June 2014Introducing the 2014 MasterClass. Last year's lunch was such a roaring success, that people are still talking about it! Straight off the back of last year's lunch we're very excited to bring you another MasterClass in 2014.
So what exactly is MasterClass?
MasterClass is a luncheon which seeks to raise funds for Riverview's Co-Curricular Program. Let's be clear: this is not just about our major sporting codes—we pride ourselves on providing a wide range of sports and activities to engage our students' interests. To ensure the depth and success of our program, we want to be able to engage quality coaches, assist in the running of teams, groups and clubs, and provide top-quality equipment to all participants. We need your support to do so.
Where will the funds go?
This year we'd like to be able to purchase portable seating for spectators on our sporting fields, we'd like to cater for increased participation in our swimming and track and field programs, and to explore further debating competitions to allow the growth in interest currently expressed by the students.
What does 'MasterClass' actually mean?
MasterClass provides a rare opportunity to learn something from individuals in the prime of their professions; people who've made notable achievements in their industries; persons who have some words of wisdom to share about their experiences, and their lives in general.
Great! Who's speaking this year?
We're very proud to be hosting multi award winning actress Cate Blanchett, and welcome back to the lunch this year international opera singer Amelia Farrugia, and television personality Andrew O'Keefe.
Who can attend?
All of our community members and their guests are welcome, including our Old Boys—you don't want to miss this lunch!
Where? When? How much?
Friday 29 August, Sydney Cricket Ground in the brand new Noble Dining Room. Pre-drinks at 11.30am on the SCG's hallowed turf, lunch at 12.30. $190 ticket price is all inclusive. For the lover of a long lunch…….the Members Pavilion Long Bar will be open from 4pm.
Say no more! Sign me up!
Make a booking via www.trybooking.com/87270. Gather together a table of 10, or come on your own and we'll seat you on a table.
