Swimming pool for De Mazenod
De Mazenod College, Kandana, a leading La Sallian Institution in the
outskirts of Colombo, will launch one of their biggest projects in their
78 year long history by laying the foundation stone for a swimming pool
of international standards on May 15 at Kandana. One of the country's
most successful business tycoons Harry Jayawardena, a distinguished old
boy of De Mazenod, will lay the foundation stone and unveil a plaque to
commemorate the occasion.
The project will cost around Rs. 70 million. A swimming pool has been
a long felt need for the Kandana school which has produced many
sportsmen. Present day Test cricketers Dilhara Fernando, Dhammika Prasad
and the current national football captain Chatura Maduranga to name a
few are past pupils of the school.
Old boys are invited to be a part of this project, and anyone who is
willing to help to make it a reality should contact the secretary of the
OBA Dr. Sunimal Jayakody (Tel. 0777-322577).
