5 th HOMAGAMA

Scouting is not an abstruse or difficult science: rather it is a jolly game if you take it in the right light. In the same time it is educative, and (like Mercy) it is apt to benefit him that giveth as well as him that receives.


Since our start

President’s College, Maharagama scout troop started on 8th of March, 1979 and registered in the Sri Lankan Scout Association under B592 in Homagama District Scout Association as 15th Homagama. Our first scout leader was Mr. M. E. S Jayasinghe and his assistant was Mr. J. Liyanage. (Mr. M. E. S Jayasinghe is National Trainee Commissioner in Sri Lanka Scout Association) Mr. J. P. R. Ashoka was the second scout leader of our scout troop. (Mr. J. P. R. Asoka was the former District Commissioner of Homagama district and he is the President of the District Scout Association). In the present most of the Assistant District Commissioners in the Homagama District are from our Scout Troop. Since 1979, almost 50 scout leaders were giving them a service to our scout troop. President’s College Maharagama Scout Troop created 5 Wood Badge scout leaders and 55 Presidents’ Scouts.
