Tribute to the two M's of Good Shepherd Convent Kotahena

Mavis Fernando and Matilda Perera

In the past one and a half months Good Shepherd Convent Kotahena, has lost two of its stalwarts; they were very active members of the Association of the Past Teachers of the School.

The soft-spoken solid Mavis Fernando whom we upheld as the foundation stone in the Sinhala stream and Matilda Perera very competent and ably taking on the finishing line of the same stream are the two M's.

The little buds that were placed under the loving and expert care of Mavis Fernando, in Year One were moulded and nourished by her before she passed them onto us to take care of them and nurture them year after year until they reached the finishing line in the A/Ls class of Matilda. She was not only a teacher she was a sister and friend to her pupils. Under her guidance and care, the little buds that were placed with Mavis bloomed into women of career and character.

Mavis and Matilda can proudly count doctors, lawyers, accountants, teachers, and other professionals among their pupils.

We as colleagues are honoured to have worked with them.

May the good Lord bless and keep them…

Ranji Jayasinghe, Past Teacher
