Fortians Union

History & Role

The Fortians Union was formed by the amalgamation of the Fort Street Old Boys' Union and the Fort Street Old Girls' Union. The older of the two was the Old Boys' Union which was formed in 1894. The Union’s aims, as stated in the Fortians Union Constitution are:

To promote amongst its members social fellowship

To render assistance to the Fort Street High School

To encourage generally appreciation of the traditions of Fort Street

Any person who has been a Fort Street student for a year is eligible to join the Fortians Union.

The Fortians Union holds an annual dinner every year on the third Friday in October and actively encourages all former students to hold their year group reunions at this event, which is generally held in a city venue. This event is the main fundraiser for the Union.
