The inaugural Meeting of St. Peter’s College Old Boys’ Union took place on 15th October 1927, presided over by the First Rector, very. Rev. Fr. D.J. Nicholas Perera O.M.I. It is worth recalling that the idea of forming themselves into a union came from the Old Boys themselves, a few months after the name change from St. Joseph’s College South to St. Peter’s College was officially promulgated on 2nd April 1927.
