A Hectic Trip to England Еby Anton Karunakaran (aka - PSK)
Whenever my wife, Liza, arranges me to chaperon my daughters on a trip,
I gleefully accept it in the hope of playing golf while my daughters attend
to their business.а However, my hopes were dashed this time as the weather
in England turned distinctly cold despite the global warming, much debated
in Copenhagen.> > > MORE

An opportunity to meet up with our fellow Alumni (KKT Master) who was a pupil as well as a teacher at St Antony's College, Kayts to share the fond memories of the past in an informal arena @ the Meeting Palace Restaurant, 34 High St, Harrow & Wealdstone HA3 7AB
Sri Lanka has suffered from almost three decades of civil war caused by ethnic tensions. Out of a population of around 19.2 million, approximately 83,000 individuals in Sri Lanka were registered blind in 1984, scattered across its 9 provinces.
Whereas the blind and the vision impaired among the major ethnic community in the Southern and Western provinces are served by the Sri Lanka Council for the Blind those in the minority dominated areas of North and East were almost completely neglected and allowed to fend for themselves.
The students and staff at St Antony's College celebrated their college day on the 10th July 2007. Prof.P.Balasundrampillai who was the former Vice Chacellor of the University of Jaffna and an alumni of the school was the chief guest for the day. Some highlights of the day are seen in the photos.
On 23rd March 2004, I had the opportunity of visiting my old school, St Anthony?s College, Kayts, Sri Lanka, after 23 years!
The college was founded in 1872 by Rev. Fr. Boisseau, who had a vision for the children in this northern village of Sri Lanka. His work received the blessing of his episcopal superior, the vicar apostolic of Jaffna, the Rev. Fr. Christopher Bonjean. MORE
Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ and wish you a happy College Day.
By the Grace of God, we are safe and sound. Also we are doing well in all our College activies, by the intercession of our Patron St.Antony. MORE
Memory Lane - Name the persons sitting in the front row
Reminiscence is something we all do and the older we get the more likely we are to fall back on our memories. The above photo was taken on the eve of Mr Mariyanayagam leaving for Nigeria.
On the 15th November 2009, we had the pleasure of meeting our former teacher Mr Kathirkamathamby
(KKT Master) at the Meeting Palace in Harrow, London. It was really an enjoyable and a grand affair as
we had many of our old teachers were present and spoke at the event. The vote of thanks was delivered by Mr Stanley Manuelpillai.
An Appeal from the President: "Sponsor A Child at Christu Illam"
This is a personal appeal to each and every one of you, who I believe are caring people who will want to help the orphaned children from the IDP camps.
Our College has been providing excellent education for more than 125 years, consistently producing many very eminent world citizens. In 1990, its main building was damaged badly by aerial bombing and all its students had to be moved out to nearby villages. Years later, repairs were carried out to the damaged buildings funded by a German Charity but the students' return was very slow. In 2005, when my wife and I visited the College, it was a shadow of its wonderful past, educating a small number of children with skeletal staff and basic facilities.
