We have the pleasure to announce the conclusion of the highly successful sports day 2011 on 18th December.The event was graced by chief guest Roshan Mahanama, who is one of the throughbred sons that Nalanda has produced. Later in the day Hon. Minister of Education, Bandula Gunawardena added colour to the event by his presence and drawing winners of the raffle draw.
The raffle draw of 2011 sports day made a unique mark in the history of the Old Nalandians Sports day, by giving a helicopter ride to the winners of the raffle draw. The audience was awed and the winners were overjoyed with this live chopper spectacle that took place. Going in to the night the fireworks display lit up the dark heavens and the starry eyed old Nalandians and their families gazed at the fitting end to a carnival full of fun and joy.
As usual the fun and games with kiddies enjoying the day the to the full and the reunion of old Nalandian buddies with papara bands and golden memories of yesteryear was the most treasured aspect of the event.
All this was made possible by those who donated generously and those who helped in various ways when it really mattered. We wish to send special thanks to the president and the office bearers of the NJOBA and great many thanks to all brothers of the working groups.
Thank you all again and looking forward to seeing you at the next sports day in 2012,
We remain yours truly,
