My ‘Ananda College’ (Sri Lanka) Prefect’s Badge From 1966.

by Anura Guruge


Getting an e-mail from the “Prefects’ Guild of Ananda College“, which I had never heard of before, yesterday morning, about this event (below), prompted me to go rescue my old Prefect’s badge from 1966 (which is now 50 years old).

Anura Guruge Ananda College Prefect Badge


I think that this is from 1966. I don’t think it was from earlier. Though I only left in August 1967, I don’t think I got this in my last year.

I was an Ananda College Prefect twice (as far as I recall) — once in Lower School and then in Middle School. I am fairly sure I was “Head Boy” of Lower School. Have a vague idea that I might have been “Head Boy” in Middle School too — but that could be my mind playing tricks.

I do know that this badge was a RARITY! It was from a batch that was cast wrong.

The background should have been GOLD, maroon and gold our proud school colors.

Gray/silver was the WORST color possible. Maroon and silver the colors of our arch rival (at cricket) Nalanda College.

I remember that the staff were rather sheepish when they handed out these wrongly minted medals. But, it was the only I was given.

So …

C’est la vie. I just did a quick check on eBay. None for sale.

I just checked my Ananda College prize list (which I had posted online (and will duplicate below)). Appears that I won the “Best Prefect” Challenge Cup in 1965. So I was definitely a prefect in 1965. [I was also a House Prefect at Mill Hill, a post I resigned.]

spacemanHave you ever stopped to think how many people may be up in space (in spacecrafts, space stations or space walking) at any given moment?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: ‘Peshmerga‘ military forces of the Iraqi Kurds (from the Kurdistan region).
