- One who has studied at SPHS (St. Paul’s High School).
- In the early days, the school was called St. Paul’s English High School to emphasize the language of instruction.
- Since SPHS is a De La Salle School, Old Paulians are also known as BOB (Brothers’ Old Boys).
- Some may join OPA (Old Paulians’ Association).
- OPA invited the Top Matriculates in 1963 to attend the Annual Dinner.
- After nationalization, OPA premises were frequented by non-Paulians, who wanted to play billiards and/or enjoy drinks.
In the mid-50s, OPA was reorganized with true Paulians.
The activities include Araciya Pu Zaw Pwe at the school, Reunion gatherings and dana at the Shwe Dagon by the OPA Buddhist Association
