PRESIDENT S MESSAGE
Dear Friends, Vanakkam
It is indeed a great pleasure and privilege writing this message on behalf of vibrant Hartley College Past Pupils Association (NSW) executive committee.
Our committee worked tirelessly throughout the year organising gatherings as well as events of sports and other activities. Our activities here will give strength and support to our school going siblings at our college who work tirelessly to achieve their goals in life.
We started collecting funds to provide a water tank to our school and on humanitarian grounds we collected funds to support part of Nilojan’s medical expenses. We also extended financial help to maintain the computer lab at Hartley. Without your generous help we will not be able to achieve our goals. We thank you all for the great support you have given to us and expect the same in the years to come.
We are currently in the process of forming a committee to streamline the process of all future projects. To facilitate this, we have had some positive contributions from Mr. Chella Pathmanathan, Secretary of Hartley College Trust when he visited us, and also a surprise quick visit of Mr. K. Mathivanan. Both of them visited from Sri Lanka and we thank them both for allocating some time for us despite their busy schedules in Sydney.
We also played our annual Tennis and Cricket matches with Jaffna Hindu College. We were the victorious team in the tennis tournament and the final match was a thriller. We retained the trophy in Tennis but we lost in the Cricket encounter.
We had a successful year with increase participation. Let us hope this trend will continue in the years to come to serve our Alma Matter.
“My vision of Hartley College is to see it play a leading role in the future Once again I thank you all for your great support.
Paskey (K. Paskarajothy)
