Opening of the New Gymnasium

Adding to the sporty spirit of the university which has been soaring high during the past year, the new gymnasium was opened by chief guest Vice Chancellor Prof.Sampath Amaratunge on 13th January 2016. The gymnasium has been a long standing need to the university, especially with the growing interest and the recent victories in the sports field.

In his address to the gathering, Prof.Amaratunge recalled the difficult times decades ago when facilities were very few and the contribution of generations of the university community to become what we achieve today. He commended the physical education department and the students for the tremendous effort put forth to score so much in the sporting arena. And hoped the gymnasium would equally be a reward for those triumphs as well as an aid to future endeavours.

The University of Sri Jayewardenepura extends special attention to sporting talents and has been backing its sportsmen and women with utmost dedication. With the new gymnasium the entire university community is expected to benefit, as the physical education department hopes to engage not only students but also the staff in fitness programs.

The opening ceremony was also attended by the Registrar, Deans, both former and present staff of the Physical Education Department, staff from other departments and students.
