WBHSOBA Endowment Trust

The formation of the WBHS Old Boys' Association Endowment Trust was initiated in 2009. The purpose was to establish a fund to take the place of the existing WBHS Foundation whereby Old Boys could build up a fund to create some sort of legacy for the future of not only the School but also the Association.

This was a fund that would be managed by Old Boys for Old Boys, although the ultimate goal always remains to provide help to the School. The broad objectives of the Trust are:

  • To foster the pursuit and advancement of high educational standards for pupils of Whangarei Boys’ High School.
  • To support, assist and advance the aims and objects of the Whangarei Boys’ High School Old Boys’ Association Incorporated so long as this Association remains a recognised charitable organisation in accordance with New Zealand Law.

The Trust is to be administered by Trustees who are appointed by the Association.

The current Trustees are as follows:

    • Erc Angelo (WBHS 1956-62) – Chairman
    • David Dent (WBHS 1968-70)
    • Murray Holdaway (WBHS 1970-74)
    • Jarrod Goodall (WBHS 1995-99)
    • Paul Ahlers (WBHS 1976-79)
    • Garry Whimp (WBHS 1976-79) – President of the WBHS Old Boys Association
    • Secretary – Mark Wilson (WBHS 1980-84)

Initially the Trustees were:

    • Martin Perkinson (WBHS 1959-62) – Chairman
    • Lloyd Morris (WBHS 1959-62)
    • Peter Ogle (WBHS 1970-71)
    • Tim Shaw (WBHS 1958-62)
    • David Silich (WBHS 1958-62)
    • Stuart Spicer (WBHS 1962-66)

Since the establishment of the Endowment Trust, other trustees include:

    • Kevin Salmon (WBHS 1975-77)

The Trustees appointed JBWere Ltd to manage the investment of the funds deposited into the Trust. The starting balance was $150,000.00.
