English Literary Association
The English Literary Association has its beginnings in 1896 as one of the first co-curricular activities initiated within the college. Fondly named the “E.L.A”, this club has since its inception, gone on to uplift the English literary standards within the student population of Royal College. In the recent past, the E.L.A has gone on to revive projects such as the Vijitha Weerasignhe Memorial Trophy which has gone onto become a prominent debating tournament within the debating circuit of Colombo. Also, new avenues have been discovered such as the “Model United Nations” which has become an important event in the club’s agenda.
