A Historic Leap in Technological Advancement at Sri Sumangala College: Celebrating the Launch of the Online A/L Admission Application
It is with immense pride and a sense of accomplishment that we extend our heartfelt gratitude to several pivotal figures and groups who have played a crucial role in ushering Sri Sumangala College into a new era of technological advancement.
First and foremost, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to the IT Subcommittee of the Sri Sumangala College Old Boys’ Association (OBA). Your dedication and expertise have been instrumental in developing the Online A/L Admission Application, a significant milestone for our esteemed institution. This remarkable project, initiated at the behest of our respected Principal, Mr. Raweendra Pushpakumara, stands as a testament to your commitment to innovation and progress.
The launch of this application marks a historic moment for Sri Sumangala College, as it is the first time in our long and storied history that the A/L Admission process has been made available online. This noteworthy achievement not only highlights our college’s adaptability and forward-thinking approach but also places us among the pioneers in Sri Lanka’s educational landscape. It is a moment of great honour to be recognized as one of only two schools in the entire nation to have implemented such a progressive system.
This innovative step is more than just a technological upgrade; it is a reflection of our commitment to enhancing the educational experience for our students and easing the administrative processes for our dedicated staff. By embracing technology, we are not only streamlining our admission procedures but also setting a benchmark for others to follow.
In this light, we wish to extend our sincere thanks to the entire team involved in this project, including the IT Subcommittee, the OBA, our visionary Principal Mr. Pushpakumara, and the college administration. Your collaborative efforts have not only made this project a success but have also laid a strong foundation for future technological initiatives.
As we move forward, let us remain steadfast in our goal to leverage technology to improve our educational and administrative functions. This initiative is a significant step in ensuring that Sri Sumangala College continues to provide a conducive environment for learning, where the focus remains firmly on student education and other critical areas.
Once again, we congratulate everyone involved in this groundbreaking project. Your hard work and dedication have truly made a difference in the lives of our students and the broader community. Let us continue to work together, with the same spirit of innovation and collaboration, to usher Sri Sumangala College into an even brighter future.
Mr. Aravinda Perera, the President of Sri Sumangala College Old Boys’ Association, has achieved remarkable recognition in the Business Today TOP 40 list for 2022-2023. His exceptional leadership skills have earned him two prominent positions on the list: he is ranked at number 21 for his role as the Managing Director of Royal Ceramics Lanka, and at number 35 for his contributions as the Chairman of Pan Asia Banking Corporation.
The entire Sumangalian community celebrates this achievement and extends heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Perera. We are immensely proud of his accomplishments and his continuous efforts to bring honor to our alma mater.
We wish him continued success and hope that he keeps inspiring us with his remarkable achievements.
We are immensely grateful to Mr. Imal Fonseka, a distinguished figure in the corporate world, and Mr. Dinoo Fonseka for their generous donation of Rs 75,000 to the SSCOBA Scholarship Fund. Their contribution is made in loving memory of their late father, Mr. Manukula Fonseka, a revered Sumangalian and former President of the SSCOBA Kandy branch.
Mr. Imal Fonseka, currently Co-Founder at Taurus Naturals, with his illustrious career as the former Group CEO of Fairway Holdings, former CEO at Ceylon Biscuits Limited, and Managing Director (FMCG) at Hemas Holdings and Mr. Dinoo Fonseka, current the Executive Sous Chef at JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, continues the legacy of dedication and support initiated by their father. Mr. Manukula Fonseka was a pillar in the SSCOBA community, fervently working towards the welfare of our students, college, and alumni. His efforts in strengthening the bond between the Kandy Branch and the Parent Body have been instrumental.
Today, we see the same spirit of generosity and commitment in Mr. Imal Fonseka’s and Mr. Dinoo Fonseka’s gestures. This donation not only honours the memory of Mr. Manukula Fonseka but also exemplifies the values of giving back and supporting the next generation of Sumangalians.
On behalf of all Sumangalians, we express our deepest appreciation to Mr. Imal Fonseka and Mr. Dinoo Fonseka. Your contributions will significantly impact the lives of many students, aiding in their educational journey and future successes.

All Sumangalians in the UK are warmly invited to join us in marking this significant milestone for all Sumangalians in the UK. See you there!
We are thrilled to announce the return of the Health Camp, commemorating the 101st Sri Sumangala College Old Boys’ Day. This is a collaborative effort between the Sri Sumangala College Old Boys’ Medical Association (SSCOBMA) and the Sri Sumangala College Junior Old Boys’ Association, rekindling a tradition that brings together our old boys, current students and their families, and past and present teachers.
For years, the annual health camp was a staple on our college premises, conducted in collaboration with both the SSCOBMA, SSCOBA and SSCJOBA. Sadly, recent challenges, including the Covid pandemic and the nation’s political and economic turmoil, interrupted this cherished event. The camp has always been an invaluable resource for our students, their families, teachers and old boys.
We’re excited to share that SSCOBMA, in collaboration with the Junior Old Boys’ Association, has resolved to reinitiate this beneficial gathering on Sunday, 29th October 2023. Attendees can look forward to the expertise of numerous medical professionals from the SSCOBMA community, including visiting physicians, VOGs, pediatricians, surgeons, general medical practitioners, Ayurvedic experts, medical technologists, pharmacists, and more.
We urge everyone to share this news widely and look forward to seeing everyone at the health camp!
