History and Background

Royal College’s History Club was started in 2009 under the Presidency of Rajitha Premawardana. It is one of new clubs formed at Royal College.

As the first project of the club, the members created a history map book. More than 500 books were printed as a first print and all the books were sold out. That first project gave  great confidence to the development of the club.

In 2005, for the first time in the history of the club, they organized a seminar for students who were sitting for the GCE A/L examination in 2006. Thereafter in every year, the history seminar has been one of the special events in History clubs annual calendar.

Under the Presidency of Praween Siriwardana in 2009, the History club organized another seminar which was held on 8th Sep 2009 and was very useful for the students who participated in it.

Under the Presidency of Pavithra Gamage, the History Club has organized one of the biggest history seminars in the club’s history. More than 200 students representing 20 schools around Colombo participated in this event.

Under the Presidency of Vidura Chinthana in 2011, the History club organized a successful seminar which was constructive for the students who participated. More than 150 students representing 15 schools around Colombo participated for that seminar.
