He further stated that it was important to reward students who secured very high marks and fell short of a Sri Lankan prize. He also stated "the celebrations are not only to reward academic achievements, but also to felicitate extracurricular achievements. In our efforts to create the leaders of tomorrow, we reward extracurricular activities and recognize students who have displayed great efforts and commitment towards organizing events"

Chief Guest, Mr. Emerson in his inspiring address stated that "winning is temporary but the attitude gained from winning is permanent". He also stated that each individual can make a difference in realizing the untold dreams of their parents.

The Highlight of the evening was the vote of thanks delivered by Tharindra Gooneratne, the 18 year old Sri Lankan prize winner. In his heartwarming speech he stated that "the art of success is doing what you can do well, as well as you can". He further stated that he was especially grateful to his lecturers who take extra effort in ensuring that students are cared for. "We can easily approach any of our lecturers when we have doubts and they would spend time in explaining it to us" He further stated that he truly felt that his lecturers made a difference in his approach to studies. He ended his speech with a thought provoking statement for all students "If we put our minds to it, even the sky is limitless".

At Imperial College, students are encouraged to reach greater heights with the dedicated tutoring and commitment for their success. Imperial College stays true to its motto; 'Nurturing Tomorrow's Leaders.
