Our History

On December 9, 1973 thirty-three Kingston College Old Boys met at Seneca College in Toronto and established the Kingston College Old Boys Association (Tor). That association was the result of the seemingly telepathic communications among the old boys who were known to reside in Canada. Indeed, it was a history-making meeting because the KCOBA (Tor) was the second such association to be formed in Canada. However, it became the first to maintain its activity without any period of dormancy. By 1998, over 35 associations had followed the KCOBA (Tor) footsteps, and are actively providing valuable assistance to their alma mater in Jamaica.

The idea to form the association is attributed to Messrs Dr Fredrick “Buddy” McIntosh and Winston “Aggery” Johnson, although others have been reputed to be toying with the idea but apparently without any action. This was in November of 1973. Buddy, a former student of Aggery, out of profound homage had invited Aggery to dinner at his home. It is well known that when food and the ubiquitous Jamaican bottled “waters” are combined, remarkable things are bound to happen. On this occasion, the after-dinner reminiscence resulted in the recollection of a number of names of old boys living in the Toronto Area. By the time the waters were consumed, 12 names were tallied and the idea to form a Toronto chapter was born.
