February 2nd 2013

The CU Sri Lanka Society Oxbridge Formal Dinner + Club Night was a great night that saw over 75 people from across the UK attend a Pembroke College Formal Hall Dinner, followed by a night out at Cindies. A big thanks to everyone who came, we hope you enjoyed it and we hope to see you all again soon.

Visit to Queen Edith’s Primary School

Queen Edith’s Primary School holds an annual BIPS day (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), where children would wear traditional dress from one of the four countries and in groups do a carousel of activities related to South Asia. CU SL Society was invited to help the children understand more about Sri Lanka, so some of our members visited the school and held a workshop to this effect. It was a great success, and we look forward to visiting them again in the future!
