The Old Boy of the year is Evan Bayly - Town 1970-1974. Evan represents many of the fine qualities that Felix Kane himself demonstrated in his long tenure developing and maintaining the association. He has been diligent in fostering a spirit of friendship across generations of old boys, with a keen interest in their welfare and families. He is a stalwart of both St Patrick’s colleges and promotes their interests, for example as a busy member of the organising Committee SPC Town 125 Jubilee Celebrations.


The Old Boy of the year is Grant Wayne Quinn - Stream 1962-1965. Grant Quinn is an Old Boy of St Pats Silverstream (1962-65) and is responsible for setting up the Special Olympics in New Zealand. His involvement, has played a huge role in making a positive change in New Zealand society's attitude towards people with intellectual disabilities. Grant's story is a remarkable one which recognises catholic principles such as human dignity, human equality and especially the right that people have a duty to participate in society, especially the poor and vulnerable. He has lead from the front and build a very strong community through Marist values such as sensitivity and openness to people, situations and events. In return New Zealand has become a better place through Grant's journey.
