Endowments can be in the names of the old boys, their parents (whether alive or late or other loved ones which could also include a teacher or anybody who has made an impact on the old boys’ lives).

Old boys are reminded that the 6th February event is an “Official” BIFOBA's event where members of the public are invited as Guests; consequently, members who have the old BIFOBA Blazer are expected to attend the event, putting on the Blazers while those who are yet to receive the new set of Blazers should please attend in the formal Corporate/Business attires.
Exco looks forward to welcoming and receiving old boys on Monday 6th February 2017.
