THOMIANS’ NITE 2019

MY INVOLVEMENT WITH MOTA COLOMBO

The year was 1982; A group of Old Thomians were in-midst the discussion of forming an association that brought together our friends from school days and other past pupils from college. At that point, the OBA was established but was passing time in a dormant status.
With the blessings and the patronage of the then Principal, Late Mr. A J Wijesinghe, this group of Old Thomians laid the foundation to revive the Matale Old Thomians Association. Our inaugural meeting was held at the Charles Robinson Hall with the participation of about 70 Old Thomians. Among many other discussions that happened during this meeting, once was electing and appointing me as the President of MOTA. My eventful and fondly remembered journey with MOTA began on this day.
I served my tenure as the President of MOTA for two wholesome years. With work and other commitments, I had to move to Colombo, limiting my involvement to just attending AGMs and other functions. Although I was aware of the Colombo Branch of our OBA and had already obtained a life membership, my heavy work schedules and other personal commitments prevented me from actively participating with the organization.
In 2010, I was elected to serve as the General Secretary of MOTA Colombo. Subsequently, I was elected as the Vice President of the organization in 2017. A year later, I became the President taking on the responsibilities of not only fellowship among Old Thomians’ but also making a true change in our beloved alma mater.
It's been an honor, privilege, and a blessing for me to perform my duties as the President of the MOTA Colombo during the past three years in concession, with the excellent assistance receiving from the young and energetic Executive Committee comprising with many Professionals, Academics, and Senior Private & Public sector Executives.
I am confident that we have made an effort to bring back the glory days of college with numerous school development projects, as well as rekindle the friendships we built during our school days with fellowship events. I invite all Thomians to rally around our alma mater with courage and faith.

THOMIANS' NITE 2019

It was an evening full of music, fun, and reminiscing their hay days under the shade of mother STC, Matale.
