Past Events


The 111th Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of the Ladies’ College Old Girls’ Association (“LC OGA”) was held on 13th March 2021. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent restrictions on gatherings, the Executive Committee decided to hold the AGM via audio-visual means for the first time in the history of the LC OGA.

The AGM commenced with the customary prayer by the Patroness, Mrs Eesha Speldewinde, followed by a welcome speech by the President, Mrs Fathima Aziz, who explained the reasons for conducting a virtual AGM, and highlighted the events organised by the LC OGA for the period from October 2019 to February 2021. These included the online initiatives that the LC OGA organized to maintain a sense of community and fellowship amongst the membership despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the President’s address, the Hony. Secretary, Mrs Nirusha Ranjitkumar Ratnatunga ran through the administrative matters on the agenda.

Mrs. Aruni De Mel, Ms. Nirupa Karunaratne and Mrs. Sepalika Happugoda were reappointed as trustees of the OGA Trust, having completed their first three-year term. Ms. Kishani Asirwatham was appointed to replace Ms. Malathi Algama (who completed her term) as a trustee of the OGA Chapel Trust. The Hony. auditor, Ms. Chandrika Wijeratne was reappointed, having indicated her willingness to serve another term. Please see page 3 for the list of members of the LC OGA Executive Committee for 2021.

Mrs. Speldewinde gave a brief overview of School news for the year, focusing primarily on the new modes of technology introduced by the School to deliver quality education, the distance learning methods introduced by the School during the lock-down period and consequent closure of schools, as well as the precautionary measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 following the re-opening of the School.

All members who registered to participate in the AGM were sent a link to an online voting platform via email. Participants then cast their vote online for each resolution taken up for voting.
