“Dear Guru pupils
I picked up your email addresses from the email that Nawmani had sent regarding the death of Lakshman  Amunugama's wife. I met many of you on two occasions at a hotel in Mt Lavinia, the first when I was honoured by inviting me to your 62 batch get together and then for the OBA get together. I have also met a few of you on the road. I don't of course recognise you as you have changed so much but you don't fail to recognise me and speak to me. The great thing which I appreciate is that while all of you are either holding high posts in the private sector or big businessmen, you never fail to address me as Sir. I'm now in my seventies and though I worked for many years after retirement from the public service in consultancy assignments, I have now fully retired and relaxing at home with my children and grandchildren. I don't get about very much as I don't drive beyond ML, and I go in one of my daughter's cars when I have to go beyond. 
The 2 years I taught at Guru were some of the happiest days in my life. Unfortunately I was compelled to leave and join the public service to better my prospects.  I went to Guru just once after I left. I'm told that the school now looks quite different and many new buildings have come up. Lakshman J keeps me updated on Guru with the newsletters which he regularly emails me.    
Pl. do drop in and see me when you pass this way. I would like very much to see you. 
With best wishes and kind regards to all

Nimal Bhareti”

                       Miller - Copleston Revival
Dear all,
Members of the Miller-Copleston committee visited college on Sunday 19 October and met the Sub-Warden and House Masters. It was in connection with the Miller-Copleston revival efforts, at which the Warden would like the Miller-Copleston Association to play a role.
We were walked through the existing hostel (and memory lane), and were briefed on the immediate and long term plans College has for this revival. It was truly impressive.
State of the art showers and toilet facilities in the new block, (to say the least) was an indication of things to come. The planning that seems to have gone on already, was even more evident in the conversations that followed.
We “The Miller-Copleston Association” have undertaken the following:
A)     In the short term provide fans, washing machines, television sets and other such utility items that are needed to the existing and new dormitories being reclaimed from classrooms. Our events will essentially become fund raisers for this with the monies we can raise through sponsorship banners etc to be displayed at these events, to other donations which can be solicited from members in cash or kind.
Cost estimate is attached.
B)      Our members will play a role in the regular programs organized by the housemasters to inspire and build the greater personalities of hostellers. Eg: Sarath Mahadivulwewa will be conducting a session in table etiquette by courtesy of a new hotel school he heads, and Shavindra Fernando as Secretary of the Association will deliver the first in a series of after dinner speeches, at formal dinner organized each term in the dinning hall for hostellers in formal dress and table etiquette.   
C)      The committee is happy to inform of the above which will indicate to the membership the kind of effort the school authorities are taking in these efforts which will become matters close to our heart, as we see the emergence of an institution we called home, soon to become of greater stature than we ever knew. For instance there are plans for the dinning hall to be re-furbished/furnished to be greater setting as the numbers grow.
D)     College has also obtained the dedicated services two old Thomians to serve as Senior Housemasters, one a former First X1 Cricket captain and the other teaching Mathematics in the senior forms. All of this we witnessed indicated the qualitative nature the revival of the school hostel aims to achieve.
E)      The revival of house names, flags and crests and some aspects of the past will be discussed as we engage on these supportive functions. Its dynamics will be left entirely in the hands of the school authorities who will best know how it could be done as the number keep growing.
F)      In the long haul, as the Warden indicated when he first addressed us at the OTSC, this effort will need the raising of larger sums of capital to “re-build” Miller-Chapman and Copleston-Claughton Houses. That is up to those of you who are leaders in the financial and commercial sector to undertake in consultation with the Warden and probably the goodwill of our brotherhood who are resident abroad.
               Determined, Dared & Done                                                Omnia Vincit Durus Labour
The Miller-Copleston Association Committee.

Subject: Sincere condolences on the loss of a lifelong friend

Dear Ronnie, Buddy and Barney,

Please accept my deepest Sympathies and heartfelt condolences
on passing away of your dear brother.
He was a well mannered gentlemen of the highest caliber and always had time to give a patient hearing to his juniors. Was the Head Prefect of Wood House and I was appointed a house prefect during his period. He won school colours in Cricket and Athletics. He once told me that everyone expects him to perform like his illustrious brothers and results in additional pressure when performing.
May he rest in peace.

To all in the "Thomian Link" that I have,

I send below the response I received from Sanjiva Wijesinha & his "tribute to Tiny" .  Please click and enjoy the writings of a true friend of nearly 60 years.

I also sent Claud, Ronnie, Buddy & Barney a photo that my husband Ian took of the 5 Reids under the College flag at the Charity lunch held on 30th September 2012.

The response I received from Buddy was touching.  He has commented that it would have been the last time that they were all together and had a photo taken of them.  Buddy has also commented that it would be the one and only photo taken of all 5 Reids under the College Flag!!   I would like to share this "special" photo of the 5 Reids as taken by Ian on 30-9-2012.  Ironically, it was amazing how they all stood from left to right in order of ages - eldest to youngest!!

Tiny's funeral will be at 1pm on Wednesday 13th August at Crossways Church (Springvale Road, near the Burwood Highway).

Glad to "share",
