Speech Day 2013 was a significant date in the OWBA calendar. A significant number of former members of staff and past presidents of the OWBA gathered for a coffee reception prior to the formalities of Speech Day. As well as a personal message from Ban Ki-Moon, the Secretary General to the United Nations during the speeches, there was a large turnout of OWBA members from the last five years. Most of these former pupils came to represent the Association in either rugby or hockey, but there was also a large contingent of supporters. The OWBA held a BBQ in the evening sunshine which was well attended.
