A collective effort was made by eight old boys from Isipathana college namely Dr Sunanda Jayarathne, Gamunu Peiris, Srilal De Silva , Senarath Kalubowila, Ranjith Dassanayake, Sri Lingeswaran, Donald Fernando and Ivan Basnayake to form an Old boys association in the United Kingdom.
With their main aim being as to take part in sporting and social events under the name of Isipathana college in UK as well as to provide assistance and promote advancement to the college in education and sporting activities. Thus the first meeting was held at Ranjith Dassnayaka's Printing Press ”Ability printers” in Rayners lane in 1990. The flag of Isipathana College oba UK fluttered on air from then onwards.
In 1993 was our first participation as the Isipathana OBA in UK in a cricket encounter at the Old Deer Park in New Malden.
In 1995 we took part in the 1st seven a side Rugby tournament.
In 1992 our first dinner dance named “Jade night” was organised at the Wood Green Primary school hall with 400 guests and the Chief guest was Mr.Waduragala who was a vice Principle of the school.
Sisira Perera is the first member from IOBA UK to be elected as the president of the FOC for 2014. He also served as the vice president and security chairman.
We have grown from strength to strength from then onwards and look forward for the support of all Isipathanians living in the United Kingdom to help Isipathana College strive with determination.
