Welcome to the Sri Lankan Student Association (SLSA) at La trobe University. On behalf of SLSA we welcome you all.
Situated nearly quarter a globe away from La trobe, Sri Lanka is a small island nation, which is often referred to as the "pearl of the Indian ocean". Also known by the historic names "Ceylon" and "Taprobane", this beautiful country is home to about 20 million people from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. With a documented history spanning over 2500 years, Sri Lanka has a rich Buddhist heritage which has been passed down over the generations.
This island nation is also well known for its cricket, a sport followed by Sri Lankans with unequalled passion. But an introduction to Sri Lanka isn't complete if one doesn't mention about its world heritage sites, golden beaches, pristine natural beauty, colourful festivals, wildlife and warm hospitality which attracts thousands of tourists throughout the year.
Our main scope is to look after well being of the members of the association and to share information about Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan culture.
We also aim to extend our membership beyond the members of Sri Lankan community by increasing the diversity of our membership and interacting with other student associations in Australia.
We, the SLSA, are committed to bringing people together who share a similar interest in Sri Lankan culture.
