A swimming pool worth Rs. 70m. for De Mazenod

SWIMMING: 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, 2009 at Kandana at 10.30 am.

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, Dammika Prasad and the current national football captain Chatura Maduranga to name a few are past pupils of the school.

Although the school has some outstanding achievements in sports,it still lacks the facilities for the sportsmen. The building of the pool, will enhance and provide more opportunities, not only for the Mazenodians, but to the other schools in the Gampaha district who are not fortunate enough to possess a swimming pool of their own.

The management of the OBA of De Mazenod, headed by the Director Rev. Bro. Bertram Perera, is the driving force of this massive project.

Old boys are cordially 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).

De Mazenod College contact details: Telephone. 0112236295/0112233287. Fax. 0112231356. E.Mail. [email protected] website.
