• Christmas Soirée | 8th December 2023

What a night! Beginning with cocktails and enchanting music by Vlute, followed by a packed dance floor till the wee hours of the morning with music by Voice Print and DJ Kosala, a scrumptious dinner and breakfast by the Chefs of Cinnamon Lakeside and hot chocolate by Anchor (Fonterra) for the recovery phase of the evening - the OGA Christmas Soirée was indeed a night to remember. The event was well attended by old girls, family and friends across generations with more prizes and giveaways than one could carry! Our host, Dino Corera did a splendid job juggling the mic and all the selfie requests. It was certainly the best way to ring in the season and conclude the events calendar of the OGA for 2023.

  • Annual General Meeting | 25th November 2023

The AGM was held at the refurbished auditorium on the 25th of November 2023 where the President, Secretary and Treasurer addressed the membership about the events that took place over the past year and the financial position of the OGA. As in the past, the event was also live streamed so as to open out the meeting for those unable to attend in-person. The members thereafter moved on to the foyer (which has also been refurbished) where fellowship ensued with cake and iced coffee.

  • Teachers' Day High Tea | 3rd October 2023

The OGA celebrated teachers' day this year by organising a high at the Marine Grand for all our past teachers of Methodist College. It was a lovely (albeit noisy) evening that had the teachers catching up with each other and having a good laugh.

  • Members' Day Out & Road Rally | 30th August 2023

After years of not being able to organise the annual picnic (due to COVID and the fuel crisis that followed), the OGA hosted a Members' Day that was a day of fellowship, games, really good food, karaoke and a bit of dancing! To add to the fun element of our adventurous members we also organised a clue-based road rally that began from school and ended at Jetwing Blue (our venue for the Members' Day). The teams were given over the first clue at school and had to solve it in order to reveal the location of the next.

    • Metho OGA Inter-house Sports Day 2023 | 27th May 2023

    The inter-house sports day was held at the NCC grounds at 8:30 a.m. on the 27th of May 2023. The event commenced with the house reps unfurling the house flags, Mrs. Hiranya Fernando unfurling the College flag and Ms. Ruwandi de Mel, treasurer of the OGA unfurling the National flag. Although we were blessed with rain in true Methodist College style, the sun shone for the rest of the day in time for the arrival of the chief guest, Mrs. Priyani Fernando and a beautifully choreographed performance by the school Hewisi band. It was really a day of healthy, fun competition and fellowship with members performing well on the track and in relays. Shire and Scott emerged joint winners after an unsuccessful tie breaker (when the tug of war rope snapped in two!)

The evening was made that much more enjoyable thanks to the indulgent spread of goodies.
