The Prefects' Guild
The Prefects’ Guild of Ananda College, initiated back in 1916 in the tenure of Mr. Fritz Kunz (the Principal of Ananda from 1914 – 1918) has truly established itself as a cornerstone in the august history of Mother Ananda. Throughout her long preserved history, the Prefects’ Guild, first designed to uphold discipline within the school and more importantly to provide necessary propulsion for future leaders to realize their potential, has surpassed many milestones and boundaries unprecedented.
Ananda Prefects strive hard for the betterment of their alma mater and the Sri Lankan society at large. Charismatic leaders gifted to the nation by the Prefects’ Guild of Ananda College help to bring out young talents and mould them into great leaders. Prefects’ Guild holds the total responsibility in passing down the inherited noble qualities of leadership, proud tradition and the rich culture of Ananda.
Today, after many years of nurturing schools of outstanding leaders grounded in the noble qualities of tradition and leadership the Prefects’ Guild has reasserted itself as a pioneer among young leaders by jointly organizing the prestigious Battle of the Maroons and shouldering the sole weight of organizing the Annual College ‘Colors Nite’ and the Annual Prefects’ Encounter held in connection with the Battle of the Maroons. Carrying its legacy to even greater heights the Prefects’ Guild in the recent past has broadened its horizons by organizing an Annual School rehabilitation project and another new host of projects successfully.
