The Inaugural Shelton Wirasinha Oration 2017 was held on the evening of 19th October 2017 at the College Main Hall. The oration was delivered by a distinguished Old Boy and Media personality, Mr Kumar de Silva.
With his 21 year tenure as Principal of Wesley College from 1962-1983, Arthur Shelton Wirasinha goes on record as being the second longest serving Principal of the College after Revd. Henry Highfield.
A product of Richmond College, Galle, Shelton Wirasinha touched the hearts and lives of tens of thousands of students who passed through the portals of Wesley College.
Shelton Wirasinha Oration was thus a fitting event which paid homage to this great educationist.
