The Senior Provost Revd Canon Brendan Clover and Mr Gavin Horgan, Head of Worksop College
and Deputy Chair of the Woodard Heads’ Association, have just returned from Sri Lanka where St Thomas’ Mount Lavinia has affiliated to Woodard Schools. This ceremony took place on Thursday at a School Eucharist presided over by the Chair of Governors, the Rt Revd D R Canagasabey, Bishop of Columbo. Canon Brendan preached the sermon. The Warden, Fr Marc Billimoria, signed the document on behalf of the school community.
Earlier in the week Mr Horgan and Canon Brendan visited the Diocese of Kandy, meeting with its Bishop, the Rt Revd Keerthisiri Fernando, and visiting Hillwood College and Mowbray College, spending time with the Principal at Hillwood and being shown around the school by girls at Mowbray College before meeting with the Senior Leadership Team.

All in all this was an excellent trip much helped by Mr Horgan’s love for Sri Lanka and for all things Sri Lankan!
