The Whole of Life Program

Dr. Nick Foord and the Community Relations Manager, Rick Clive.  

Northbridge War Memorial

The OBU has supported the “Northbridge Pledge”, donating monies towards the War Memorial which is a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by many Shore Boys and Staff.

Common Room Support

The OBU has established a plaque acknowledging academic members of staff who have achieved 25 years or more of service.
