Reviewed by Wosanda Malaviarachchi  Under a golden sky at Bogambara Stadium, TCKs Rugger teams confronted their opponents, Sri Sumangala College – on the 30th of June 2024. They went head-to-head hoping to gain a win for their teams, especially the Trinitians since they had lost the previous match and this victory would bring them back on track to win the Bradby Shield and the Tournament.  First Half   The game kicked off on schedule at 4.15 pm and almost immediately a tri was scored by Usman Shafraz and then a few moments later another try by Murad Raizan of Trinity making the Opposition rethink their game plan and bringing the scoreboard up to 10 for Trinity and zero to Sumangala, after just 10 minutes of the game. The rest of the first half went as expected with the Trinitians pulling ahead with a considerable gap of 27 points and the Sumangala Players managing to Score 5 points, a few moments before the 1st half ended with 32 points for TCK and 05 points to SSCK.  Second Half  The game resumed at 5.15p.m with a few more quick tries by the Trinitians,  followed by the Sumangalains who also scored some magnificent tries which brought them on par with TCK, but it made no significant difference since, by the end of the match, Trinity College had rocketed ahead leaving Sri Sumangala at a disadvantageous score.   Finally, with a few moments on the clock, Team TCK scored one last try which guaranteed their victory. Trinitians who had racked up 49 points were unable to make it to 50. Nonetheless, they won the match with a gap of 35 points.   Though the Sumangala team lost this match, they showed their impressive rugby skills that retrained Team TCK from getting farther than 49.   Victory for Trinity  The spectators were not disappointed and were able to witness a series of spectacular tries from both ends.  We thank the Captain of the Trinity 1st XV rugby team Anuhas Kodituwakku, the Captain of The Sumangala 1st XV rugby team Dinidu Wickramasinghe and MICs for a spectacular encounter. This encounter was a prime example of teamwork of rugby players and inspired upcoming young players to carry the Trinity’s rugby legacy for years to come.  
A review by Muhammed Jameel (Web Content Team)  The second match of the Dialog Schools’ Rugby League for the lions kicked off at Havelock Park on the 22nd of June 2024. The Trinitians travelled down to Colombo to take over at the top of the leaderboard but unfortunately could not hit the mark.  Before the game began, D.S. Senanayake College displayed a heartfelt gesture. As the stadium packed with supporters mourned the passing of Master Shabeer Ahamed, the captain of the host team gifted one of their own jerseys with the number that Shabeer would’ve worn this season. This very thoughtful gesture will be remembered by the Trinity community. We thank everyone with a deep sense of gratitude who gave their condolences in this period of grief.  Early Dominance by D.S. Senanayake College  The game was kicked off by last week’s bonus point scorer, Shan Althaf. As a punt from the Trinitians landed in the hands of the opposition’s skipper, the player used the opportunity to execute a chip and chase. The kick was misjudged by the Trinitian sweeper and the lads from Colombo pounced on the scrappy play and scored the first points of the game. As five points were scored right underneath the posts, the other two points were converted with ease.  Rolling Maul Adds to D.S. Senanayake’s Lead  As the lions scrambled to level the score, they conceded a line-out in a treacherous area of the field. The opposition executed a simple rolling maul directing towards the try line. This phase looked a dreading one as the Trinitians were unable to counter the strength coming from the D.S. payers. The ball carrier barged over, adding another five points to their tally. The angle of the place kick this time around was narrow but that factor did not deprive the player as he sailed the ball through the sticks. The half ended with D.S. leading Trinity fourteen (14) points to zero (0).  Trinity’s Resilient Second Half  The score line at half time did not look favourable to the Trinitians but they are known for their resilience and their ability to strike back in the second half of play.   Trinity’s First Try: A Glimmer of Hope  The Trinity team received a scrum in their opponents’ half which ignited an opportunity to score their first try of the game. The Trinitians displayed a jaw dropping move ending with the captain Anuhas Kodithuwakku diving over to open the scoring. The conversion went astray as the ball swayed to the left of the goal posts.   Closing the Gap: Trinity’s Second Try  With the gap reduced by five points, the Trinitians desperately needed two more scorings. An attempted punt by the Donz was chased down and Murad Raizan scored the second five pointer. Unfortunately, the conversion did not go through.  Final Whistle: D.S. Senanayake Secures Victory  The full-time whistle sounded and the Trinitians dropped to their knees as the celebrations from the D.S. supporters deafened Havelock Park. Even though the game ended with our lads at the losing end, this team has much more on their plates to be displayed. Congratulations to D.S. Senanayake College for their well-earned victory!   Points Breakdown  D.S. Senanayake College – 2 Tries, 2 Conversions   Trinity College                   – 2 Tries

“At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling.”   Reviewed by Ayyash AbuBakar & Isija Thilakarathne An apt quote, perhaps veritably so since the Annual Kindergarten Sports Meet of 2024 has officially concluded. In the words of Theseus in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the spirit of youth is “pert and nimble.” Yet, the spirit of a child may be nimbler and colorful, for it is only the child that delights in the simpler pleasures of a much innocent world; they see joviality in a mud-bath, music in the rain, and roses among the dull hedges, and sport, to which youth is attracted for its glory and gold, to the child is but something in their own inherent nature. You need not urge a child to sport- they are the sport.  This, maybe, the very reason why this year’s Kindergarten sports meet was received in much deliberated enthusiasm and pomp. The Junior School ground was the perfect arena for the little athletic heroes, a haven, in other words, for simpler souls seeking nothing but fun and enjoyment among the green sleeves. April, too, was the perfect month, as it promised felicity and the blushing blooms of spring was a very natural setting for the much-awaited event. The energetic team of teachers in charge of the event proved to be the right cocktail for productivity. The date was, as usual, the best one that it could be. The 30th of April, as decided, existed solely for the purpose of the Sports meet and nothing else.  The day commenced with its own grand air of excitement. The Junior School Band, with its blue-hued caps of feathers and brass buttons was a sight to see, but much vibrant were the melodies that strutted among the keys and handles of their well-polished instruments. Among the might procession, marching in her own limelight of prominence, was the Chief Guest of the special ceremony. She was not only a teacher. She was a pivot. A pivot of efficiency and inter-Staff unity, a head of many subjects and an in-charge of the TCK Sick Room, Quadrangle Development Programme, and a wise member of the Staff Committee. Ladies and Gentlemen, enter Mrs. Caroline Anthony Gnanapragasam, extraordinary conductor of the symphony of academic adventure.  The anticipation was not only present among the staff members. The Kindergarteners had made sure to dress prim and proper, and there was a strong sense of camaraderie among the company, because not only the Kindergarten, but the whole school itself, had made itself readily available for this spirited frolic into early sportsmanship. The TCK Media Unit and its Announcers had rallied to the microphones and the podium, all pristine and set for a day of heavy but fun-filled toll. The stands gleamed, the tents sparkled. Everything was in order.  The event started with a word of introduction to the much-loved Chief Guest, and her many merits were masterfully elucidated. With smooth transition, they next moved on to a holy word of prayer by Rev. Shelton Samadanam, our respected and highly valued Chaplain. Our Father Principal, Rev. Araliya Jayasundara, the Vice principal, Mr.Krishanthan Anthonydas and the Co-Vice Principal, Mr. Ananda Marasinghe, along with the Director of Sports Mr. Gihan Samarasekara and the Junior School Headmistress Mrs. C.P.K. De Tissera were all notable members of the school administration who took part as key witnesses to commemorate the occasion. We then saw the Kindergarten Percussion band, lead by Master Oshan Samarasinghe, who enthralled the audience with their hand-beaten music and drummed beats. Serenading alongside to the School Song and National Anthem, the respective flags were hoisted by the Headmistress and Rev. Father Principal. They then respectfully took their seats as seven eager young fellows, in an artistic mirroring to the Pleiades of Atlas, marched forward to deliver an oath of promise. A pledge that owed to honest sportsmanship and cheerful athletic mastery followed. After the conclusion of this mystic yet awe-inducing promise, the Percussion band moved on to further engage the onlookers with their hard-practiced tones of genial and generic music. An Announcer from the cusp of the podium proceeded to smartly welcome the Kindergarten Drill Display, to which much applause was brought upon. What ensued was a classic yet choreographically pleasing performance by the students, who, with their suits of red and white, mimicked the perfect demigods of childhood and sportiness. In the words of the beloved J.K Rowling, first impressions can work wonders, so this primary set of classy acts brought upon a kick of enrichment and grandiose to the events that would be followed in the rest of the day; in a nutshell, they grounded the prospective of the sports meet as a well-organized and slickly coordinated one.  Next the races commenced, this year the proceedings were a little different. With the help of the teachers, both grade 01 and 02 activities were well-planned and organized. As a result, with the help of Mrs. Himali Mulleriyawa the activities of grade 02 were a great success. Each class of grade 02 had various skills and talents to showcase. With the help of their respective class teachers, the young trinitians put on an enthusiastic show. The individual races include;  *2A – Dynamic Balance.  *2B – Balancing Race.  *2C – Fun with Water.   *2D – Yummy Apples.  *2E – Balance! Balance! Balance!  *2F – Challengers.  *2G – Don’t Give Up.  Although not only individual races stole the spotlight the partner races too caught the audience’s attention. The event included two youngsters partnering up and trying to beat their very own classmates. It was truly a fierce battle and there was tension in the atmosphere, although there was curiosity and excitement to see who would return in triumph. The partner races include;  *2A – Football Encounter.  *2B – Walking like a crab.  *2C – Hat catch.  *2D – Clever Minds.  *2E – Chained Together.  *2F – Ball carriers.  *2G – Hand in hand, Heart to heart.    Not only

A review by Master Nimuthu Pathiraja (Web Content Team)  On the 23rd of March 2024, Trinity was warming to yet another momentous event in its college calendar, the 42nd Limited Overs Encounter against St’ Anthonys College. After an exhilarating match just the previous weekend which came down to the very last ball, the limited-overs encounter was approached with unprecedented excitement, anticipation and prospect, and Trinity well and truly lived up to the hype at the Katugastota Oval.   Batting first. The Batting display of Trinity was truly an outstanding display of talent and dedication. The team managed to score 228 runs for 9 wickets, which was made possible with two special knocks by Master. Dimantha Mahavithana and Supun Waduge (55 and 56 runs respectively) with support from almost all of the batsmen.   The bowling was no second to the batting, as exceptional resilience, grit and patience were highlighted by our bowlers. Master. Dinuka Thennakon and Tharana Wimaladharma were the stalwarts in the bowling section, claiming 3 wickets each with Master. Manula Kularathne, Malith Ratnayake and Supun Waduge also contributing with 3 wickets amongst them, ultimately resulting in the fighting Anthonians to subside at 128 runs all-out, resulting in a deserved win for Trinity College Kandy with an astonishing margin of 100 runs which earned them the Sir Richard Aluvihare Trophy.   The Awards   The following players who represented their Alma Mater were awarded for their commendable skills.  Man of the match: Master. Supun Waduge  Best Batsman: Master. Dimantha Mahavithana  Best Fielder: Master. Janith Warnakula  Their display of cricketing maneuvers, showered all those watching with joy, creating memories that will be cherished forever.

(Reviewed by Rehan Anandakumar, Prawana Dissanayake, Krishiv Ekhaash)  The 104th cricket encounter between TCK and St. Anthony’s College Katugastota: “Battle of the Blues” became the most looked forward to event for both schools, on the 15th and 16th of March 2024. Played at the Asgiriya Cricket Stadium, a historically renowned venue in the Hill Capital of our Island, the annual event comes alive with much hype and glory.     A fully electrified atmosphere charged with the customary ‘papare’ beat and live music brought out the support of the student strength of the schools.    Day one kicked off with Trinity winning the toss and opting to field. After an early breakthrough in the first over by Manula Kularathne, the excitement went quiet in terms of wickets. By the efforts of the captain, Thisara Ekanayake (63 runs) and Janith Rathnasiri (59 runs),  The Eagles were able to end the day with a score of 232 for the loss of 9 wickets.  Day two commenced with Anthonians being bundled out for 249 runs within the first hour, resulting in Trinity facing the new ball in swinging conditions in the morning. Despite the loss of two early wickets, Trinitians were able to build up a good partnership of 100 runs. With Viduka Dhammage scoring 70 runs, Trinity was halfway through the game. But due to the constant pressure built up by the Antonian bowlers, Trinity found themselves in a tough position. As the game stepped into the last hour, Trinity was left with only 2 wickets, still being a few runs short of 250 runs.   With only 10 overs left to go, captain Manula Kularathne, who had been holding the fort for over 4 hours, got out, leaving TCK with only one last wicket. The last few overs were suspenseful, with all the fielders creeping in on the batsman, waiting for him to make a mistake. But the last pair was able to keep calm and batted out the remaining overs, hence, after a strong fight between both the teams the match was drawn, securing the trophy to Trinity College Kandy once more.  We thank both the teams, coaches, umpires and students for their relentless support in making this year’s match a memorable one.   TCK acknowledges the unstinted training and support rendered by the Head Coach Mr.Naveen Ekanayake, Assistant Coach Mr.Lakshitha Alahakoon and the MICs Mr. Brian Senarathne and Mr. Bandula Pushpakumara.  We wish the team good luck for the upcoming year.  Day 01 Day 02
