|History of the PPA (past pupils association) of
Holy Family Girls’ school Wennappuwa
The PPA is proceeding with a proud history of 19 years. The PPA was formed in 1985 in accordance with the Golden Jubilee of Holy Family Convent nuns, under the patronage of Rev. Sr. Patronilla. It worth to mentioning the devotion of Rev. Sr. Mary Josephine who spent both time and strength in forming the association in 1985. Twenty nuns who were past pupils of Holy Family Girls School were present for the first meeting in 1985. The first president of the PPA was late Mrs. Astrid Wass an educated, courageous lady who rendered her true service for the betterment of the welfare of the school, with her fellow office bearers and members of the committee which consisted of 20. Her name is alive, because of the untiring effort she took to continue the service of the PPA with the committee. Lavish donations of her family members still continue, to fulfil the educational needs of the students of the law incoming families.
As a result of the donation of the past members of the association, today, the school is fortunate enough to get the service of young, energetic 40 committee members. Today it is the best, strongest source that provides funds for the welfare of the school. All the members of the PPA work in unison to achieve the aims of the association under the patronage of the present principal, Rev.Sr. Henrietta.
