OA Tide

Old Andrean Tide is held in November every year and all Old Andreans are invited to attend this special event.

St Andrew was the patron Saint of Missionaries and the name chosen for College by John Armstrong in 1855.  The 30th of November is St Andrew’s Day and St Andrew’s Tide is celebrated as close to this date as possible.

Each year at the St Andrew’s Tide ceremony at the Clock Tower the fallen are remembered and a roll is read of all other Andreans who have died that year.

The school’s cadets and Pipe Band turn out in splendor for this occasion.
