Visakhians of NSW Celebrate the 100th Birthday of Their Alma Mater in Grand Style

Reporting from the floor

Visakhians from all over New South Wales gathered together recently to celebrate the 100th birthday of their beloved Alma Mater at the Centenary Dinner Dance organised by Dilmini Fernando, Chamani Wickramanayake, Jinani Nissanka & Sashini Ambagahavita, on behalf of Visakhians of NSW.

The stylish Grand ballroom of the Epping club was decorated in hues of blue and gold in representation of the school colours to welcome the three hundred or so guests which mostly consisted of past pupils of Visakha Vidyalaya with their partners and friends.

A drink and canapés reception greeted the guests on arrival to the ballroom where the guests were given the chance to grab an official memorabilia specially produced to mark the centenary celebrations . Nostalgic memories of the wonderful time spent at the school filled the room when Visakhians of yesteryear stood proud and sang the school anthem in unison.

While the founder of the school Mrs Jeremias Dias was fondly remembered all who gathered to celebrate wished the school a long glorious journey ahead by cutting a cake specially designed for the occasion by Amali Pathiratne an old girl of Visakha Vidyalaya herself.

The room was transformed in to a discotheque by talented entertainers, the band of the night Hipnosis & DJ Neil inviting everyone to dance to some classic tunes of the 80s & 90s.

After a sumptuous three course meal, prizes and surprises the celebrations and merriment continued on till the wee hours of the night. Thanuja Wijesekara of Eye & The Beauty another past pupil captured special moments of the night with her camera skills.
