The Interact Club of Wesley College was chartered on the 30th of September 1980, under the Presidency of current Rotarian, Mr. Thariq Thulba. The ICWC has grown into a vibrant, active and an influential club which has risen from strength to strength over the past 37 years to be one of Sri Lanka’s premier Interact Clubs, thanks to its dedicated service to the society and its committed members. The ICWC is well known for frequently organizing and participating in professional development programs and creating wholesome members of the society. Two of the premier projects organized by the ICWC are, the ‘ Ballad Festival’ and the annual ‘Ifthar’ ceremony.
In the year 2016/2017 ICWC organized many events of repute beginning with the annual Ifthar (1st July 2016), immediately followed by ‘The Drop’ (9th July 2016) a Finance Project that brought in one of the best DJs and Bands in the island. The event had an audience of nearly 600 attendees. Thereafter, the club was selected to host the first District Meeting together with the Interact Club of Anula Vidyalaya on the 9th July 2016. The main event of any interact year is the ‘Installation’ which was held on the 5th of October 2016, and the new office bearers were selected and appointed to carry on with the new year and this was witnessed by over 35 school based Interact Clubs and 5 Rotaract Clubs. This was followed by a Parents Workshop under the Theme - ‘Project Guardian’. Many other projects, such as ‘The Interact Walk - ‘Ascend’ were graced by the ICWC and even today the club goes ahead with major Community Service Projects like ‘Colours of Compassion’ to raise funds to help out Ward 2 of the Lady Ridgeway Childrens’ Hospital in its renovations and replacement of amenities.
Through these efforts, the ICWC develop a network of friendships and will continue to prosper and grow as it increases its reach and grasps the future quickly and firmly.
