The RKS Old Scholars Association was formerly known as the RKS Old Boys, a social club of sorts that would organize functions/events (usually dances, fundraising drives, dinners, picnics and rugby games) for its members (usually made up of former students and teachers). Slowly, over the years in extended its membership informally to include family members of Old Boys who had passed on. Inclusiveness in the modern era led to a change in name to RKS Old Scholars Association, embracing at last the participation and contribution of women in the development of the school.

Lodoni Day – Reunion & Fundraising
The construction of the iVolasiga drained the RKSOSA coffers – literally. The association needed a new way of raising funds for the RKSOSA Resource Center and Club House but keep the active membership numbers high, so the Lodoni Day concept was born. First celebrated on 21st April 2012 at the FDB Foreshore to assist in renovations at the school, it continued through out 2013 and was held for the first time at Ratu Sukuna Memorial School in 29th November 2014, where it has continued to be held each year since. The old scholars however have been meeting on an annual basis since, 1945 but for the last three years, the Lodoni Day celebrations has been held together with the RKSOSA AGM.
