For the 2013 Rugby season, Isipathana College has tied up with Lumiere Textiles Limited who produces knitted fabric in an environment-friendly facility built in Biyagama Export Processing Zone, to deliver a strong message to the rugby fraternity in keeping the environment clean along with the government vision to make the city greener. The sponsorship cheque was given to the Principal of Isipathana College, A.C. Perera at a press briefing held at CR & FC boardroom last week.

The Isipathana principal stressed, “We still don’t have our own play ground for rugby, but still we are one of the best rugby teams among brother schools. As we are always going with Green we have found a perfect sponsors in Lumiere Textiles who are also keen on the Green concept. We have newly planted more than 200 plants around our school, and our plan is to build a healthy environment for the future.”

Isipathana College, Colombo formerly known as Greenland’s College, has a name as the most feared rugby playing team in the school arena, yet they are without a ground to be called their own. Last year Isipathana College became the league champions and went on to win the knockout tournament (President’s trophy 2012). This year Isipathana under the captaincy of experienced 4th year coloursman, Uditha Premathilake, who with Hirantha Perera a 3rd year coloursman as his deputy, and 12 other coloursmen look forward to being a champion team during the  2013 rugby season.  The chairman of Lumiere Textiles Limited, Kumar Perera and the deputy chairman and managing director of Lumiere Textiles Limited Bandula Weerasinghe were also present at the press conference.
