Students and teachers of Dharmaraja College Kandy made another visit to St. Patrick’s College Jaffna recently to strengthen the friendship and develop mutual understanding with Patricians. This goodwill visit was organized by the Civil Affairs Office of the 511 Brigade.

Dharmaraja boys received warm welcome from St. Patrick’s counterparts on arrival in the college where they met each other in a limited over friendly cricket match played at the school ground on 27th May. Patricians recorded a win by 9 runs over the Rajans scoring 207 to 9 wickets. Before the friendly encounter, students of both colleges exchanged gifts as tokens to mark their brotherhood.

Principal of St. Patrick’s College Rev. Fr. Jero Selvanayagam, Vice Principals of Dharmaraja College Lieutenant Colonel S.K.B. Weerakoon and Mr. B.M. Basnayaka and staff members of St. Patrick’s College also joined the crowd to witness the event.

It was agreed to organize the match as an annual event of the sports calendar of both schools. Civil Affairs Officer of the 511 Brigade at Atchelu Lieutenant Colonel Sarath Abegunasekara, an old Rajan coordinated the visit.

This was the second visit of Dharmaraja students to St. Patrick’s College. In September 2010, a team of Patricians got opportunity to visit important places in Kandy such as Victoria dam, Temple of the Tooth (Dalada Maligawa) and Mailapitiya War Hero Monument.
