Global Spectrum

“Our club is a place where we take substantial steps to connect with people who are diverse, in order to understand and realize that it takes many to make this world a better place.”

The Global Spectrum of Bishop’s College was formed By the British Council of Colombo in the year 2005. The Club’s first president was Maheshika Mendis. A year later in 2006 one of the clubs main events, ‘The Exchange Programme’ was started where a link was created with the ‘Limavady Grammar School’ in Northern Ireland and students from the link school visited Bishop’s College. This was followed by another exchange programme with, ‘Padma Odzer Choeling school’ and ‘Tattenghen school’ in Sikkim, India.
