The group of 91 embarked on a project to renovate the Main IT Lab at Royal College, to commemorate their milestone of 50 years !!
Project Chairman Prabash Ranaweera and his dedicated team of batch mates completed the project of installing 54 Dell i5 11th generation computers along with a Smart Board, local area network, electrical cabling, A/Cs, a 20Kv UPS, brand new furniture and equipment including CCTV plus restoring the entire room, giving it a brand new look, while maintaining the grandeur of the building.
The cost of Rs. 27 Mn was borne by members of the group with support from well-wishers both here and abroad.
The ceremonial handing over of the renovated lab was held on 11th July with the participation of the Principal Mr PACP Jayalath, Vice Principal, Teacher in Charge of IT, and students.
Former Principal Mr B Suriarachi, former Primary School Headmistresses Mrs Manel Wimalaratne and Mrs Attygalle and many other distinguished past teachers graced the occasion on the invitation of their grateful former students.
It was indeed a proud and poignant occasion for the batch mates of the group to give back to their Alma Mater as they celebrate this milestone in their lives.
We have repaid the debt we owed and kept thy fame inviolate !!!
