D. J. Nicholas Perera Hall Project

In the Centenary year, as the Peterite fraternity, we want to do something substantial towards our alma mater. The project to renovate and refurbish the D. J. Nicholas Perera Hall is estimated to cost over LKR 100 Million. As the St. Peter’s College Old Boys’ Union, our target is to raise LKR 50 Million during the Centenary year.

Rev.Fr. Rohitha Rodrigo

St. Peter’s College, Colombo, one of the largest Catholic schools in the country will celebrate 100 years on January 18, 2022. It will mark an important milestone in the College calendar, as the boys in blue, white and gold cherish and celebrate the completion of the century of their alma mater.


In 1922 the Rector of St. Joseph’s College, Colombo, late Rev. Fr. Maurice J Le Goc, in order to accommodate students coming from the southern part of Colombo, created a branch, its brother school on January 18 in Colombo 4, as St. Joseph’s College, Colombo South, which later blossomed to become St. Peter’s College.

Chorus :
Lend a heart and lend a hand,
And lift the flag on high !
Let it’s glorious colours give
A greeting to the sky !
Golden gleam and silver sheen
And Blue that crowns the world !
Set the Flag a flying. Boys
Keep the flag unfurled.1.While in boyhood, here we linger,
Mid a garden’s fragrnt flowers,
Who shall dare to point the finger
When such joys are ours,
Work enduring, play alluring
Fill our happy hours.
Ills all – curing, health ensuring,
In St. Peter’s bowers !
and our Flag is floating proudly,
Let us sing its praises loudly !Lend a heart…

2. “Strong as rocks” we’ll meet the surges,
Of the stormy sea of fate,
Ever led where conscience urges,
Towards a nobler state:
“Strong as rocks”, in play or study
Meeting friend and foe,
Fields of Culture, fields all muddy.
Watch us as we grow !
See, Our Banner’s floating proudly
Let us sing its praises loudly !

Lend a heart…

3. “Strong as rocks”, we’ll play the game Boys
Ever fighting for the rights,
Never stain the College name, Boys:
Keep the flag in sight:
Lit us march, eves front, together
Helping those in need,
“Mid Life’s foul or fairer weather,
We’ll be friends indeed,
While our Flag is floating proudly,
Let us sing its praises loudly !
