Annual General Meeting of Anandian Astronomical Association was held on 19th of June 2012 with the participation of teachers -in- charge, old anandians and society members.
Since its official launch in 1998, Anandian Astronomical Association has successfully contributed many events, and has rendered many great endeavors not only to Alma Mater of Ananda, but also to the whole nation, making the field of Astronomy more and more popular in Sri Lanka. Thus from its inception, Anandian Astronomical Association has become one of the few leading Astronomical Associations in Sri Lanka.
We are proud to mention that we were the pioneers at school-based astronomy by organizing the “SIR ARTHUR C. CLARKE CHALLENGE TROPHY” Interschool Astronomy Quiz Competition, initiating in year 2001. Thus we have been continuing this episode integrally and annually in order to promote and enlighten Sri Lankan Astronomy.
And it is with great gratification that we recall the memories of “STAR PARTY” to be internationally recognized as the school-based pioneers of Observational Competition in South Asia as embarked in 2004. STAR PARTY observation competition has become another event in our calendar with a difference, as it is an affiliated project with The Astronomy Club of Mahamaya Girls School Kandy.
The Annual General Meeting of Anandian Astronomical Association for year 2012/2013 was held 19th June 2012 at the school premises.
