This Event is one that is much looked forward to in both the OBU /OWSC calendars where Old Boys of Wesley College, in Sri Lanka and Overseas, come together in true Double Blue Spirit, to bond and enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie, which go beyond the borders and barriers of Religion, Language and Race. The event underscores the hallmark of the Wesley Spirit and the tradition of the institute.
