~ Official Gavel Trip – 2022 ~ Prep week It all started on May 6th, a Friday night with a WhatsApp group called “Gavel Trip ’22”. All the gavel people were calm and quiet except for 13 gaveliers chosen from a volunteering request, who knew something super exciting is going to happen in the upcoming […]
The page was turned over into a fresh page with the tip of the pen filled with the ink of potential leaders to start scribing another tremendous chapter with the heading 7th Installation Ceremony in the Book of Gavel Club of University of Colombo on the 22nd of April 2022. With the beams of light […]
When you are with Gavel any festival won’t come to an end! On the 4th of May 2022, ‘Avurudu with Gavel’ took place at FOS Library premises with exciting and unique games, lots of laughter along with a great bonding time for our gaveliers. It surely gave recollections for all of us! The meeting started […]
It was the 27th of April. The day began with the first light of sunrise. We all gathered at the university where we were willing to take free transport from the University of Colombo to the Wayamba University. The journey wasn’t supposed to be a trip, but it was. This was an acceptance of an […]
The 248th Educational meeting of Gavel UOC was held on-site in a whole different approach with the presence of our beloved Gaveliers.

The Gaveliers of the Gavel Club of University of Kelaniya and the Gavel Club of the University of Colombo rocked the […]

To top it all, the 23rd of October marked an indelible day as the joint meeting with the Gavel club of University of Ruhuna took place. The meeting was called […]
“Gavelier Chandula had 9 uhs 3 uhms and used the filler word ‘and’ repetitively.” That was my Ah Counter report on my first ever table topic. My speech was 1 min and 30 seconds long with 12 filler sounds and repetitive words. That’s one “UM” every 10 seconds and who knows how many ANDs in […]
Well, it was the moment, the moment we had all been waiting for, but the ‘Ex-Magicians of Gavel UOC’, had not so much.  From epitomizing quintessential leadership and inspiring the generation to come, to spilling the beans and jeopardizing their own self-esteem, these senior Gaveliers went through 2 hours (give or take) of wonderful merrymaking […]
Once two friends helped each other and their friendship evolved over time where they both grew up, collected memories, and supported not just each other but also the family they met at Gavel.  They are non-other than Mr. Shayen Yatagama, who was the Junior treasurer for the term 2016/17, and Mrs. Vimukthini Jayalath who was […]
