The idea behind the games is to create a schools cricket cum debate festival that went beyond the boundaries in a harmonious bond. It is looked at as a way to create a tournament which combined Sports & English with community involvement thereby tightening the communal bond. We are building bridges on age old traditions, to provide opportunities for students, staff, and parents to transcend the physical and mental barriers that has built up over the last few decades. This tournament gives reason for the Colombo residents to visit Jaffna and for the Jaffna residents to visit Colombo. To this effect, the Sivagurunathan Memorial Challenge has proven to be fruitful.
In keeping up with the tradition, this year too, we are conducting the celebratory banquet where the presentation of awards is held.
Chief Guest for the banquet will be the Hon. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka, K. Sripavan who himself is an alumnus of JHC.
What is new in the banquet this year will be its latest addition: this year, the banquet will take the novel form of a Business Forum in which eminent champions of industry from both schools will make their presence under the patronage of the Chief Guest, the Hon. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka, K. Sripavan who himself is an alumnus of JHC.
