Loyola Old Boys’ Association was founded in 1975 by an inspired group of old boys who cherished their memories of school and wanted to enable others to do the same. Their efforts kept all of us connected to each other, with the school and its activities.
From the tentative steps taken by the pioneers led by Jimmy Antony (1969) and others, LOBA now encompasses 50 batches and a 4000 plus strong alumni body of leaders and achievers, of boys and men imbued with the Jesuit ethos.
Apart from Trivandrum where LOBA has a major presence, vibrant local chapters exist in Kochi, Bangalore, New Delhi, Singapore and Dubai. In July 2017 LOBA organised its first UK meeting at Leeds, which led to the formation of the Global ExCom. This eight member team now supports LOBA in many of its global initiatives.
LOBA organises three events in a year. The Back to School event on Oct 2, the Global Leadership Awards’ event in early January followed by the AGM during the second week of July.
The Loyola Welfare Initiative was launched in December 2016 with the purpose of putting our minds and resources together to make a contribution to society. The first project under this initiative was a medical insurance scheme for the school staff, both serving and retired. The second initiative, a Pension Scheme for non-teaching staff, was ratified by the general body at the 43rd AGM.
