The JHC OBA Victoria is a voluntary association of the past pupils of Jaffna Hindu College presently living in Victoria, Australia. The OBA was formed in late 80s by Jaffna Hindu Old boys, for the purpose of creating the bonding between the past students of JHC. Since then the dedicated members of the JHC OBA Victoria have worked tirelessly to make a more active and stable OBA.
By 1990, the OBA had drafted a more comprehensive Constitution, which was very necessary for formalising the functions of the Association and the Association was incorporated in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in 1990. The goal of the Association is to unite, inform and involve alumni, family and friends for the purpose of promoting, protecting and preserving the legacy of JHC.
Jaffna Hindu College OBA Sydney (JHC OBA Sydney) was established in 1994 and currently has over 200 active members who are involved in managing and implementing many fundraising events for the school. The JHC OBA Sydney provides an opportunity for all Jaffna Hindu Old Boys who are in New South Wales and around Australia to contact their classmates and maintain a link with Jaffna Hindu College. One of the major objectives of JHC OBA Sydney is to contribute the funds generated from our events towards maintaining basic infrastructure support and services such as scholarship assistance to Jaffna Hindu College.
In order to maintain links between members and also other JHC OBAs across the globe, a website was set up in 2004 (www.jhcobasydney.org.au) which is the main communication link for the Old Boys community across the globe.
