The Double Blue Spring Ball organised by the Wesley College Colombo OBA NSW, to celebrate the 145th anniversary of their College in Colombo, was held on 28th Sept. 2019.

The grand night, attended by 170 guests, which included many past pupils of Wesley was a sell off event. The Concord Function Centre, the venue of the function, was tastefully decorated by Double Blue colours and fitting double blue colour lightening.

The evening started off with drinks and canapes at the foyer. The Master of Ceremonies, Senani Gunasekera, who took over after the guests were ushered into the hall, gave them a warm welcome and commented on the excellent planning of the function. The President, Keith Grenier, in his address thanked the guests for gracing the occasion and supporting them. He made a special announcement that part of the proceeds of the function will go to support a project by the alumni groups of the School, to replace the furniture in the classrooms of their beloved alma mater.

The delicious food with unlimited liquor served and the great entertainment provided by the popular band – THE KAMIS, made the evening good value for money, and one to remember.

There were great prizes at the raffle draw, with the first prize a return ticket for two to New Zealand and back. The night ended with the College song, passionately sung by the past pupils and the Wesley HAKKA, performed by one of our senior member’s – Nizar Sappideen, which received much accolades from all those present.
