Familians young and old gathered in the school quadrangle on the 3rd of February 2020 in celebration of 117 years since the inception of their Alma Mater. Alongside these celebrations we also commemorated 72 years of independence as a sovereign nation.

The day’s proceedings were initiated with the Hewisi band welcoming the Principal, Vice Principals, representatives of the five congregations of the Holy Family order, teachers and student representatives. This was followed by the adoration of the Holy Eucharist and celebration of the Holy Mass by Very Rev.Fr. Daya Walikadaarachchi.

After hoisting the school and national flags by our Principal Rev. Sr. Deepa Fernando and our Senior Head Prefect Imshi Reiss, a speech by Rev. Sr. Dineshika Fernando who introduced the theme for the bicentenary jubilee ‘Live Communion, Celebrate Family’ concluded the second segment.

The celebrations concluded with a performance by the Sinhala choir and a skit by the Prefects’ Guild highlighting interracial peace and harmony.
