The Past Pupils’ Association, a vital artery of Holy Family Convent, Bambalapitiya, has helped Familians keep in touch with each other, and also with their beloved Alma Mater over the 75 years of its existence.The Association was inaugurated on 17th March (St. Patrick’s Day), 1934. Rev. Mother Gonzaga, Superior of the Convent was the first President with Mother Mary of Jesus as the Vice President.
The Association still continues to be vital to its Alma Mater, making its contribution in many positive ways. Two members (President and Vice President) of each committee represent the Association on the Welfare Society each year. Many loyal past pupils, too numerous to mention, have held office and served on other school committees like the Centenary Committee over the years. They have given of their time, talents and finances and helped their Alma Mater in many ways. The Association records all these contributions with gratitude.
The annual activities such as the Annual General Meeting and luncheon, the Day of Recollection, Social and Picnic are held during the year, together with other activities each committee decides upon. These strengthen the bonds between Familians and also their bonds with the school.
