It gives me great pleasure to announce the proposed publication of a history of the College – ‘The Trinity Story 1872-2022′. This is being initiated immediately in preparation for Trinity’s sesquicentennial anniversary [150th year] celebration in 2022.
The history project is sponsored by one of our alumini Mr M. V. Muhsin and has been approved by the Board of Governors. It will be implemented by a Steering Committee in collaboration with the School.
The Executive chair of the Steering Committee will report to the Principal who is the ex-officio Chairman.
‘The Trinity Story 1872-2022’ will be presented in two strands:
The first is ‘Stories of Trinity’ conveyed in narrative form. It will present Trinity’s past, present and steps for the future in an engaging and informative manner through a series of feature stories, photo essays and interactive features which harness visual, textual and multimedia elements through a mix of print and digital media.
The second is a statistical and chronological history as a companion volume in digital and electronically searchable form, combining the 1872 – 1972 History (Trinity Publication edited by Hilary Abeyratne) with the balance 50-year period 1973 through to 2022.
The current members of the Trinity History Steering Committee are Mr M.V. Muhsin, (Executive Chair and Editor), Mr Ananda Marasinghe Co-Vice Principal, representing the Principal, Mr Himendra Ranaweera Executive Program Coordinator, and Mr Jayantha Jayawardene Project Director. Other members include Dr. Nalin Wickramanayake, Dr. Romesh Ranawana. Dr. Jayantha Dhanapala (Counsellor).
The editorial team includes Arjuna Ranawana (Lead Editor) supported by Miss. Imani Bakmeedeniya; and Production Manager David Colin-Thome. A team of Trinity students and staff will undertake the research and compilation; the editorial cum production teams are being engaged with the involvement of Trinity Students, Alumni and Staff.
A team of students and staff is currently engaged in compiling the needed data and information and in conducting research.
For now it will help if Alumni share with us articles, stories, vignettes, documents, photographs, videos and other material of historical interest which will serve as inputs to the compilation under way. Please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a very important initiative. We require the cooperation and support of all Trinitians, past and present. On behalf of the steering committee, I invite all members of the Trinity Family, locally and globally, to join us in this timely endeavour.
