THE BLACKBOARD

From Shiran Viswasam

Big congratulations to the organising committee for putting together this wonderful reunion. I have attended every single one so far and it gets better every year. And, each time I have travelled down to Melbourne for this event I have had the opportunity to meet an old schoolmate who I have not met for over 35 years. This time was no exception. I met my classmate Tony Motha after 37 years, Shanthilal Fernando and Tiny Goonathilake after 20 years, rugby mate Keith Nugegoda after 25 years. The list goes on and on.

The success of this event has to be measured by the number of old Peterites who travelled especially from overseas and interstate to be part of this great event. And the numbers get bigger every year. So let us all Lend a Heart and Lend a Hand to the organising committee and make the next reunion in 2017 even bigger. – Shiran
