Quadrangle Magazine is a collector’s item – get your copy today!

Posted on 02 September 2015 by admin


The Quadrangle Magazine is the brainchild of Old Peterite Sujith Silva who has successfully got together a coterie of reputed journalists and old boys from St. Peter's College, St. Joseph's College, St. Anthony's College (Katugastota) and St. Benedict's College to bring out a worthy publication. It is a collector's item and the inaugural hit the stands a few last month and is available in Sri Lanka, U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Canadian residents, please call Upali Obeyesekere, President of JPAA Canada (416-445-5390) for a copy of the Quadrangle. It is a worthy literary effort and Sujith Silva must be congratulated for his initiative and hard work in putting this splendid magazine together. This magazine will interest the select group of "Saints" schools – Antonians, Bens, Peterites and Joes!

The word ‘Quadrangle’ may mean an empty space or a design with four points and six lines to some. But for those who spent some part of their lives in a Quadrangle in an institution, this would mean plenty of memories. It was a place to meet and to play and to share stories amongst friends. Of course in between a place to get reprimanded in public for all the misdeeds.  Nevertheless, those who grew up in Quadrangles, like you and me, and all those who come from Quadrangular schools would place great value and respect not only to the institution but also to those who guided them to become who they are today. Some friendships built at Quadrangles last for a lifetime with fond memories lingering in our minds.
We moved on, like rest of the world but hardly have we forgotten those values inculcated and the learning’s we’ve had. These values help us in our endeavours to be strong, be successful and most importantly to be human beings in this demanding, ruthless yet funny World. Furthermore, our world is shrinking with the digital world bringing us closer each second.
Here we are opening a new chapter of our story, by launching the very 1st issue of Quadrangle Magazine (A bi monthly Magazine) through the learning we’ve had at Quadrangles and where they have led us, reaching out to one big community of Sri Lankans in this Island Paradise and across the world. The soft copy is uploaded to the site for your reference and you can order the print copy to which ever destination. We will keep copies (free issues) to pick up from today onwards at Old Bens Sports Club, Old Joes Sports Club, Peterite Lounge and at Old Antonian Secretariat. In addition these Magazines will be available soon at leading bookshops and super markets. You can order online too.
Russel Arnolds features in the cover story and Priyantha Ekanayake is featured as our ‘Legends’ with Manik Pereira, Dudley Thambinayagam and Air Chief Marshall Roshan Goonetileka being featured under ‘Outstanding Saints’. Feature story is the indepth analysis of 1957 Schools Cricket season featuring for the first time1st XI Cricket teams from St. Benedict’s, St. Joseph’s, St. Peter’s and St. Anthony’s. Current Schools Cricket Review featuring St. Anthony’s and St. Benedict’s 1st XI teams. We also have many stories to take you down the memory lane and captures the highlights of events held in Canada, London, Melbourne and Colombo.
The Stories begin mostly from a Quadrangle be it at Kotahena, Maradana, Bambalapitiya or Katugastota and cover the local corporate world, sports, leisure, tourism, fashion, food and entertainment. We have on stage some senior writers in Sri Lanka and guest writers from Australia, Canada and United Kingdom along with our very own up and coming writers, content generaters and photographers sharing their stories.
