Dear Malathi
The STG 62 group consists of all students of this year whom both Lanka and  I taught. They invite their former teachers occasionally for their get togethers. I think Lanka was there at one of these occasions. I'm sure some  of them will contribute towards this cause in his memory. I too will send a small contribution.
 Kind regards

Dear members of the STCG 62 group and my former pupils
I'm forwarding an appeal made by Mrs Malathi Nesiah, wife of late Mr Lanka Nesiah. Both Lanka and I started our careers at Guru and both of us have taught all of you. The appeal by his wife is for a very worthy cause to establish a scholarship to a student in memory of Lanka. Both of us, though we parted in different directions, always had fond memories of our days at Guru and reminisced on those days whenever we met. I appeal to all our former students  to make a contribution to this worthy cause in memory of your late former teacher.
With very best wishes to all

To: Lanka Nesiah <lmnesiah@gmail.com>


Dear Family and Friends,

When Lanka passed away, too soon, last August, we wanted to celebrate his remarkable life in a permanent way. Among the many emails we received, were emails from people who  remembered Lanka as kind teacher in his first employment in 1960, awaiting University  entrance, at S. Thomas’
Gurutalawa.

S. Thomas’ Gurutalawa is a boys school situated in the south-eastern edge of the hill country in Sri Lanka. It has a lower and upper school.  Currently there are 602 students on the roll of which 450 are boarders.  The school has capacity for another 75 boarders and 75 day-scholars. The
demographics of the school are 58% Buddhist, 20% Muslim, 15% Christian and 7% Hindu. It costs Sri Lankan Rupees 40,000 per boarder per term and  SLRs 5,000 per day-scholar per term. This figure includes fees, books, materials and sports but not uniform, clothes or pocket money.

We have set up a fund, administered by the Incorporated Trustees of the Church of Ceylon. An investment of SLRs 1,200,000 will provide one boarder scholarship that we would like to give a student from a remote area. It is our wish that we will also be able to provide for two day-scholars from the local area.

We are touched by the many generous contributions towards our quest. However, we are short of our target to provide for the first student and are therefore now writing to you if you would like to be part of this project. If you would, could we please ask you send a cheque made out
to the account payee (details below) and post it to Nagulan Nesiah (address below) or Sangeetha Nesiah (address below) or by bank transfer (details below).

Name of Account : The Incorporated Trustees of the Church of Ceylon

Account No     : 01-6063268-01

Name of Bank  : Standard Chartered Bank

Branch                : Wellawatte

Swift Code       : SCBLLKLX (Col)

We would appreciate your pledges by July so that we can proceed with the application process to be able to commence the scholarship at the beginning of the school year in January 2015.

Thank you so much you support and please be assured that we are moving on and learning to cherish the lovely memories we all have.

Yours sincerely,

One of his greatest achievements has been to be elected International Director of Lions Club International.  

We, his colleagues From STC GURU, feel it’s appropriate and important to recognize Sunil with a  Fellowship evening. 

Music & Dinner at the 80 Club Independence square on 17th Monday  at 7.30 pm.

Sunil will be accompanied by his wife Manel for this memorable evening.

“Muditha Dissanayake has Sent us the following e mail on February 25, 2014”

Dear Mr. Jayatilaka,

Lot of the usual participants at the AGM were not there possibly due to two long weekends either side of the OBA weekend and also with Mount AGM around the same dates. 

But large numbers (around 150)  were present for the weekend due to the high interest this time (due to the successful dinner, web and social media presence). 

Anyway I have attached a photograph of the new EXCO. ………………………”
