Report on the OBU Branches World Wide

The following is an extract of the Colombo-based SPC-OBU Annual Report 2011/2012 published in connection with the 84th Annual General Meeting held on July 1, 2012. This refers to the $2000 (CAN) donation by JPAA Canada towards the St. Peter's College Chapel Renovation Project – 2012.


The Overseas Branches have yet again extended their whole hearted support to the OBU in Sri Lanka by generously contributing to the Fund Raisers organized by the OBU. Special mention should be made of the following Branches whose support to the OBU and College has been invaluable.

JPAA Canada (Josephian-Peterite Alumni Association of Canada) – In April 2012 the founder President of the JPAA Canada Mr. Upali Obeyesekere was in Sri Lanka as the head of the Canada-Sri Lanka Business Council delegation to the Expo Exhibition in Colombo. During his visit he met with Rev. Fr. Travis Gabriel (Rector), Mr. Rohan Victoria (Chairman Peterite Walk 2012) and Mr. Roshan Dharmaratne (IPP) and presented a cheque for CAN $2000 (Approximately Rs. 250,000) for the Chapel Project.

The JPAA remains a vibrant and active body of Joes and Petes working in harmony organizing many social and sports events for the Joe/Pete community in Toronto.
