Royal College – Group of 91 is an alumni association, comprising classmates who graduated from Royal College Colombo in 1991 and is affiliated to the old boys union of Royal College.
With over 500 strong memberships across the world, the association prides itself as a group that cares about the alma mater though they parted way back in 1991. Group of 91, started their journey by building an overhead water tank for the junior section which was a much needed requirement at that time. It also, constructed a staff room for primary teachers to enjoy their break and gave a facelift to the Rifle shooting/Weight lifting arena which gave a boost to these two not so popular sports. The group further invested in restoring the connecting Bridges of main college buildings and a part of the main parapet wall, while preserving its colonial ambiance.
Group of 91 created a carnival of Rugby popularly known as the ‘Royal Rugby Fiesta’, a fellowship for the Rugby fraternity of all ages which is in its 14th year. This is probably the only tournament of this nature conducted in the Country, where rugby fans and players rally together to celebrate both the School and the Game.
Royal College – Group of 91 organized a gala dinner dance Silver Rendezvous last month at the Colombo Hilton. There was a week of fellowship where over 500 members and their spouses from various parts of the world met and rekindled friendships.
