GREETINGS FROM HCPPA, Victoria
The President Hartley College Past Pupils Association NSW
Dear Mr President,
It gives me the utmost pleasure to send this message of good wish to the souvenir, which is being brought out in conjunction with your forthcoming AGM. It is very gratifying to note that in recent years the overseas branches of HCPPA have greatly boosted their support and commitment to our Alma Mater, Even more pleasing is to see the overseas branches are taking an increasing interest in each other’s activities and a willingness to cooperatively work for the common good of the Alma Mater. The reputation of Hartley is no longer confined to the borders of our homeland. It has spread across several continents including Australia, Europe and the North Americas largely due to the regular and vibrant activities of the HCPPA in their respective countries creating an awareness of Hartley not only among expatriate Sri Lankans but also among the wider community.
The generosity that was shown by overseas Hartleyites and well wishers towards Nilogan’s Appeal is testimony that the Hartley spirit is very much alive. The success of this collective effort should inspire us to undertaking more coordinated activities in promoting the welfare of Hartley and Hartleyites.
On behalf of the HCPPA of Victoria, I wish you all great success in all your activities and trust that your AGM will provide another opportunity for Hartleyites and their friends of NSW to get together and have a wonderful time.
N. Nanthakumaran (President, HCPPA, Victoria)
