As a College that recognizes freedom as a God-given right, we at St. Anne's College understand the importance of keeping the spirit of independence alive and pride ourselves in promoting and encouraging independent thinking among our students. As the nation marks the 75 years of Independence, Annites Family wishes every Sri Lankan a Happy Independence Day!
Want to spend Independence Day freely and leisurely with your College buddies? Nothing more could be asked for that than a friendly 🏏cricket encounter between our old 🇬🇦Annites. Join this Saturday (February 4) at 🕗8:00 AM at the College Ground for the Old Annites Past Cricketers Tournament.
We are waking up to another win by an Annite Chess player as Adithya Ganehiarachchi emerged as the Champion in the 2023 Sri Lanka Novices Division Chess Championship - Kurunegala District.
Grade 9 student Adithya outplayed 143 contestants in the competition organized by Knights Flame Chess Club on behalf of the Chess Federation of Sri Lanka which was held at D. S. Senanayake Central College, Uhumeeya.
He is undefeated in the entire tournament with 6 points from a maximum of 7 with 4 wins and 2 draws and he got an impressive performance rating of 1309.
This competition is one of 16 Divisional Championships that were held in parallel this month as the preliminary stages of the Sri Lanka Chess Federation National Cycle.
It's already a good start to this year's Annites Chess Calendar, as not too long ago we were able to report that St. Anne's College Chess Teams bagged 3 wins in the Provincial Team Chess Championship.
