Posted on: 12/04/2015 (Sunday)
The Jaffna Hindu OBA Singapore chapter was inaugurated last Sunday, the 12th April 2015. It is the 12th OBA of Jaffna Hindu College. We are proud to have established an OBA in Singapore, the hub of South Asia. 
The inaugural event was held at the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar wedding hall, Ceylon Road, Singapore 429613. Before the inaugural meeting, a special pooja was held at the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar temple. Then the meeting commenced with the recital of thevaram and College Anthem. Around 50 old boys domiciled in Singapore attended the meeting. Also, the Principal Mr.I.Thayanandarajah and the Sydney OBA President Mr.G.Partheepan were present at the meeting.
Mr.Niranjan Nanthagoban welcomed everyone to the meeting and then the Principal delivered his speech. Following that, Mr.G.Partheepan addressed the gathering. In his address, he highlighted the importance of a new OBA in Singapore. He also highlighted the decreasing trend in the student performances in education, in the North and East of Sri Lanka and how the old boys in Singapore can contribute towards the development of the alma mater and, in general, to the development of education in the North and East. He also appreciated the strength of the Jaffna Hindu International OBAs and the relationship they have with their alma mater.
After him, Dr.S.T.Kasinathan, who was an old boy of Jaffna Hindu in the 1940s, addressed the meeting. He remembered the 1948 time period in Jaffna Hindu College and shared some interesting stories at that time. He also mentioned about his activities and support for the educational and community development in Sri Lanka.
