It is a pleasure to inform you that three students of Good Shepherd Convent, Colombo 13 got the opportunity to be a part of the Sri Lanka Schools Handball Team at the SNS Invitational Schools International Handball Tournament held in Malaysia in February 2016. The selections were held in two stages with the participation of about 60 school players from all around Sri Lanka.
Handball was first introduced to Sri Lanka Schools in 2011. In the first All Island Tournament Under 15, girls of Good Shepherd Convent claimed the victory being the unbeaten team of the tournament. Ever since, up to date every year Shepherdians have honored their Alma Mater, by bringing Home victories ranging from the Gold to Bronze, From the Cup Division to Bowl Division in all four age groups i.e. Under 20,18,16 & 14. It is owing to such talents shown by the Shepherdians at the National level that they got the opportunity to represent Sri Lanka Schools at the International level this year.
This is not the first time that the Shepherdians conquered the International handball court. Our mighty Shepherdians were blessed with talent and courage that four of them represented the first Sri Lanka Schools’ Handball Team in 2013. Ms. Saddara Fernando, one of the most senior players of school, was appointed as the Captain of the very first Sri Lanka Schools Girls Handball Team and she successfully led the team in a tour to Malaysia as well.
In continuation of honoring the Alma Mater and proving their dedication,
|1. NETHMI THARAKA HAPUARATCHI||Grade 11|
|2. ANNE RAVEESHA||Grade 12|
|3. ANNE PIYUMALEE||Grade 12|
were handpicked among 60 odd players around the country to be a part of the Sri Lanka Schools handball team this year.
Nethmi Tharaka, being a powerful attacker and a junior player, Anne Raveesha being a significant defender, and Anne Piyumalee being an exceptional center, both of whom were partners of the 2011 victory have contributed a lot to school Handball Teams until today.
The school’s handball team is blessed to have Ms. Darshani Kendaragama as the coach and the teacher-in-charge. With her dedication Ms. Kendaragama led the school team to be among the top in the country.
We heartily Congratulate our players and Wish them and Ms. Kedaragama ‘All the Best’ in their sports career ahead. May God bless them with courage and strength!
