The Alumni Association of the
Faculty of Science of the University of Kelaniya was established
in 1991 and Professor M J S Wijeyaratne, the present Vice
Chancellor of the University of Kelaniya, was the founder
president of the Association.
The Association, from its
inception has been involved in numerous social and welfare
activities including the awarding scholarships to undergraduate
students, awarding gold medals to the best special degree
graduates, organizing workshops and seminars to train and
enhance the knowledge of G C E Advanced Level teachers and
supporting career guidance activities of the undergraduates.
These activities have been made possible due to unstint
dedication and efforts of the office bears and the members of
the Association. The seminars conducted for G C E Advanced Level
teachers and students have been extremely successful. These
seminars have helped the teachers to gain knowledge on the new
sections introduced to G C E Advanced Level curriculum and also
get a thorough training in the practical work pertaining to
these sections. Such activities will undoubtedly help to develop
the education of the younger generation of our nation.
