As an undergraduate who hopes to break into the investment banking industry, the mentorship programme organized by RIC Alumni was profoundly insightful. I gained practical advice, encouragement and was able to develop my presentation and communication skills, which I believe has set an invaluable platform for my future career. I would like to thank Ms. Natalie De Silva for sharing her years of experience working as a banker and for making this programme a profound success.”

A Charity Initiative for the Unsung Heroes of RIC

 

RIC Alumni Board 2021-22 initiated a fundraiser for the minor staffs of Royal Institute of Colombo. As COVID pandemic hit the nation, island wide lockdown has adversely affected many of the front-line workers for whom meeting the essential requirement has been a struggle. As a gratitude to the service of frontliners of the alma-mater, the Alumni of RIC has made contribution by providing dry rations to the Unsung Heroes of RIC.
