Nalanda College Astronomical Society is the leading School Astronomical Society in the Island through its history of 23 years. From 1995, it has done an immense service to the school students and to the public too. Astronomy is not an unfamiliar subject to the students all over the world but it’s little bit unfamiliar for Sri Lankan students. As this is the situation prevailing, the Nalanda College Astronomical Society is taking the responsibility of educating the school children all over the island about Astronomy.
