Wesley College OBU Colombo - 145 Founder's Day Celebrations, Traditional Lunch and AGM held on 2nd March 2019

Dear Members of the Wesley Fraternity,

 I wish to thank all those who attended the Founder's Week Celebrations of the OBU Colombo and participated in all the activities - the College Assembly, the Matches, the Lunch and the Annual General Meeting of the OBU Colombo.

I thank all the members of the Wesley Fraternity in Sri Lanka and Overseas, especially the OBU branches in London, Middle East, Sydney and Melbourne Australia, for the wonderful support given to me in the last two years, and I look forward to your support in the coming year, as I will be continuing my 3rd Term of Office as President of the OBU Colombo for the year 2019/2020.

Attached below are photos of the 145th Founder's Day Celebrations of the OBU, the Traditional Lunch and the AGM held today the 2nd March 2019 at College, which was well attended. It was great to see so many Old Boys come back to College after many years, and heartening to see many young Old Boys coming forward and participating in their numbers. We were happy to have with us, our former Principals - Dr. Shanti Mclellend, Mr. Upali Ratnayake, Mr. M.A.P.Fernando and many past teachers - Mr. Marshal Fernando, Mrs. B.A. Fernando, Mrs. Lakshmi Ameratunge, Mrs. Ranjini Fernando, Mr. Haig Karunaratne, and Mr. Ivor De Silva who is 95 years old and yet made an effort to be with us on this occasion.

The OBU also recognized the three College Students who brought Honor to Wesley by their outstanding performances in their respective sports - Zayan Sabar for Rugby, Adeetha Siriwardane for Swimming, and Rahel Karunaratne for Chess, during the Traditional Lunch.

God Bless You All

Ora Et Labora
