Principal's Message

Firstly, I wish to congratulate and thank the members of the ROCOHA group living in Sri Lanka and abroad and believe that the website will provide information to ROCOHA members to connect with the past hostellers’ network, and college. Also, I believe it will arouse nostalgic memories and inspire them to support each other, the college and the hostel at present. Stay Safe! Floreat!

ROCOHA President's Message

The current ROCOHA Committee took over during the global pandemic in September 2020 but was engaged in around 10 projects. One of the key projects was to relaunch the short-lived website which was dormant due to technical and content limitations.

Through the web we intent to connect past hostellers dispersed globally and develop camaraderie among themselves. Our intention is to make ROCOHA a strong Sri Lanka based global network. Furthermore, this can facilitate them contributing towards the hostel and developing a globally competent all-round hostel student.

While recognizing the contribution made by all our predecessors, I take this opportunity to thank Mr.Anjana Rathnaweera, the project chair and his team who has spearheaded the Website Development Project. Also thank Mr. Buddika Harischandra and team for their pre-attempt in developing a web, ROCOHA past president Mr. Nishantha Sugunapala and Australian past hostellers, along with past president Mr.Sanjaya Wijesinghe for financing the project and past president Mr. Hiran Perera for providing information for content development.

Stay safe! Stay connected!
