Old Scholars

Once a Blacks boy – always a Blacks boy.

Blackfriars Old Scholars enjoy a continued connection with the school after graduation and are regularly welcomed back for reunions and events. Through the school’s Development Office, the Blackfriars Old Scholars Association endeavours to stay in touch with graduates as they progress through the various stages of their life post school.

Upcoming Events


Blackfriars Old Scholars Football Club (BOSFC) entered the South Australian Amateur Football League (SAAFL) in the 2006 season.

​Since its inception, BOSFC have enjoyed great success on and off the field. In the club’s inaugural season we won the Division 7 Premiership, and then went ‘back-to-back’ winning the Division 6 Premiership in 2007. In 2014 BOSFC won the Division 6 Premiership, moving us into Division 5.

​BOSFC is proud to have developed a strong and inclusive environment, welcoming any player, volunteer or supporter (Old Scholars and non-Old Scholars alike). The club continues to be built on a foundation of generosity, commitment, and local support.
