Year 2023

The J/HFC AA Canada committee is excited to announce our upcoming Gala event, Fall Fling on Sep 23, 2023 at 6pm. This year’s event is to foster fellowship among members, well-wishers and friends. And as always we will raise funds to support our Alma Mater. Over the years, our alma mater has played a significant role in shaping our lives, providing us with knowledge, friendships, and countless opportunities. Today, I invite you to join us in giving back to the institution to continue to inspire, educate & transform the lives of many in Jaffna.

Here are the details of the campaign:


The funds raised from this year’s campaign will be set up in an Endowment fund and the income generated from this investment will assist with the below initiatives each year.

  • Students excelling in sports, speech and drama
  • Grade 5 scholarship assistance for slow learners

  • English camps

(Allocation of funds for the above initiatives will be based on the funds raised)


  • To provide financial support for the initiatives that were identified by the principal and school committee in the past year for the students to reach their full potential and to empower them to achieve their dreams. This will in turn improve the reputation and standard of our school.
  • By keeping the principal intact, the fund’s sustainability ensures that these efforts can be pursued continuously, providing a stable source for the long term

  • Build on the success of the Canada Fund initiative and the model established


Education lies at the heart of this fund’s mission. The support for these initiatives will have a profound impact on Holy Family Students, enabling them to excel academically, explore their passion, and develop crucial life skills. The fund can support the expansion of extracurricular activities, camps and sports programs.


The Canada Fund was established to fund an annual awards program to encourage the members of the faculty who have gone ‘above and beyond’ to enrich the learning experience of students and students that have excelled in a wide area of school curriculum. Thank you for considering this request. Your generosity and continued support are vital in shaping the future of our beloved institution. Together, we can make a profound impact and create a brighter tomorrow for generations to come. To contribute, please contact our alumni association members below. We encourage you to spread the word and share this opportunity with your fellow alumni, friends, and family members who may also be interested in supporting our cause. Together, we can create a positive ripple effect that will resonate within our Familian community and beyond.

Year 2022

We are all familiar with the saying “charity begins at home”, but what is considered “home”? It is said, “home is where your heart is” and we all agree that a little piece of our heart is still back in Sri Lanka. It is in giving back that we feel complete, helping and investing in one another. The following are some examples of coming together to give back to our Alma Mater over the years.


HFC Alumni Association will raise $20,000 from this year’s (2022) Gala event to support our young female children at our alma mater. Together we can empower and elevate our young today so that they can lead successful lives in the future.

With the support of our fellow Familians and Friends, we plan to help the most vulnerable young children gain language proficiency, acquire computer literacy, learn to adopt in their classrooms and experience fullness of life.

Here’s why your kindness matters:

  • Help 25 slow learners in grade 5 by offering extra classroom support in the weekends. Not every child learns the same way or at the same pace. They are offered one on one support to keep up with their peers in the regular classrooms. They are also offered learning materials and food while at the program. ($2,000).
  • Help 50 children in grades 1 - 4 attend 24 English camps/yr. These camps offer the children a curriculum especially designed for young learners. They practice their speaking, grammar, listening, reading and writing skills & learn new vocabulary. ($1,726.00)

  • The young children can greatly benefit from early training in essential computer skills. Computers play a huge role in our daily lives and its important that every child learns computer basics such as using the keyboard to input and utilize many functions. Its every child’s dream to become computer savvy, now more than ever.

We ask your kind support to help us, help these children achieve the above goals. Please give generously.

Together we can support them today and empower them for tomorrow. We thank you in advance for your kind and generous contribution. Thank You!
