In June 2013, Old Boy Dion Mayne (2000) contacted program developers, Appster, about the possibility of designing a nationwide digital community noticeboard. Appster were impressed and wanted to be involved. In doing their own research, they found the idea would be a world first. One year later, with a bank loan and the generous support of a silent investor, ‘Noticeboard’ has become a reality. Suitable for both the Android and Apple platforms, it is simply the traditional concept of your community noticeboard transferred to your phone. Better still it can be used by the Australian public for free. The decision to make Noticeboard 100% free was a gamble Dion was willing to make. Growing up, Dion and his family had…

It’s a common dream to be a race car driver. With his father and racing partner, Old Boy Ben Foessel (2007) is living that dream and mastering it. At such a young age, Ben is embracing the business and physical grit behind the sport. His passion for motor racing, combined with his drive and determination to succeed, is reflected by his numerous podium finishes throughout his debut year. In 2013 he won the Australian GT Championship Challenge Division and is going great guns this year too. Ahead of the sixth and final round in New Zealand this weekend (7-9 November), Ben is again sitting at the top of this division. It was only two years ago that Ben started racing and he…

First XV coach and Athletics Performance Officer, Jason Gilmore (1995) is leaving Churchie, again. Jason will finish on Friday 31 October 2014 to take up a full-time coaching opportunity with the Queensland Reds where his primary role will be Head Coach of the Under 20’s. As a former student of Churchie, Jason is part of a strong family legacy of Old Boys that started with his grandfather Alan Edwards (dec’d), who attended the school from 1946 to 1949. Jason is pictured wearing Alan’s Vintage Vikings tie. The rugby pedigree in the family is certainly not a new thing. Before going on to play for Australia, Jason’s great uncle, Owen Edwards (1959), played in the Churchie First XV for two years…
