Ned Haig and David Sanderson, would have been proud to witness the Sri Lanka schools Rugby Sevens event on August 12th. A game they conceived in 1883 in Melrose Scotland, now being played around the world at many levels.

Spectators, Ex Rugby greats, young and old fans of this fast paced game all gathered on this extremely hot August day to watch their school team battle for the coveted Quentin Israel Memorial Trophy.

2017 Sri Lanka flood relief contributions

Dear Thomians and Friends,

We write to you today, on behalf of the STC OBA of Canada Executive committee. The Committee had an emergency meeting to discuss the devastation caused by the floods in Sri Lanka last week. It was brought to our attention that the STCOBA-ML has issued a request for flood relief contributions on behalf of the Diocese of Colombo.

The EXCO would like the membership to dig deep, and help us raise much needed funds to help the relief efforts.

The 2017 Sri Lanka floods resulted from a heavy southwest monsoon, beginning around 18-19 May 2017. Flooding was worsened by the arrival of the precursor system to Cyclone Mora, causing flooding and landslides throughout Sri Lanka during the final week of May 2017. The floods affected 15 districts, killed at least 208 people and left a further 78 people missing. As of 3 June, 698,289 people were affected, while 11,056 houses were partially damaged and another 2,093 houses fully damaged. According to Al Jazeera, about 600,000 people have been displaced due to the floods.

The flooding severely affected Sri Lanka's Western Province, Sabaragamuwa Province, Southern Province and part of Central Province. The worst-affected districts were Kalutara, Matara and Ratnaputra. In Kalutara, flooding of the Kalu River also triggered several mudflows. Agalawatte, a town within Kalutara District, reported 47 deaths and 62 people missing as of 29 May, with many areas made inaccessible by landslides. The Ratnaputra District had recorded 79 deaths as of 30 May.

An easy to use fundraising website has been set up. Please follow the link below to show you're support.
