When Dharmaraja College celebrated the Centenary year in 1987, 1stKandy Scout Group and the Old Rajans Scout Association organized the ‘Centenary JIM 1987’ to commemorate 100 years of excellence Sri Lankan education in grand style. It was also the 75th Anniversary of The Sri Lanka Scout Association as well.
At the JIM 1987, Scout Leaders, Scouts, Girl Guides camp together in the first time in the history of Sri Lanka. This comprised of over 3000 local and foreign scouts and girl guides.
It was the very refreshing and fascinating programme which any scout can remember with pride.
