June 30, 2007- OBA Meeting:
One of the most important events in the calendar is of the OBA meeting held in June every year. For over three decades Sainik School, Amaravathi Nagar has maintained a rich tradition of Old Boys Meeting on the last Saturday of June every year.
Alumni from different walks of life are expected to be present; the meeting is aimed at productive interaction with existing students apart from sharing their experiences of the past in the school. Alumni members now in defence forces are role models for the present students and they encourage them to join defence services.
Silver Jubilee of Passing out:
Each year, the batch which has completed 25 years of passing out from the school, being a Silver Jubilee year of passing out passionately sponsor or contribute for addition of new facility in the school campus. This initiative has been a tradition over the years to give back something to the school which has been instrumental in shaping not just their careers but life as a whole.

Contributions of the previous batches are as below:
- Fans for all the classes (1975)
- An open stadium at the Oval (1976)
- An additional guest house in front of the mess (1977)
