Commenced in 1987, the Oratory and Debating Society of Mahanama College inherits a proud history of more than three decades. During this period we could contribute many leading personalities to our motherland. Taking its initial steps in 1987, our team could show outstanding performances from the beginning. The team became runners-up in Enil Fernando Competition in 1987 while in 1990 the team achieved its championship by winning the trophy of the biggest debating competition organized during that period. Reaching to its highest the team won the National Debating Trophy in the years 2008 and 2009 and we are proud to mention that the Mahanama College debate team is the first and only team to show that type of excellence. Hence, we are privileged to mention that Mahanama College Oratory and Debating Society was a threshold for many leading political, media and legal personalities which paved their path to a skilful future career.
