Mrs. Janaki Gunawardene, Chairperson of Business and Professional Women Sri Lanka, came to speak in Assembly at both the Junior and Senior Schools about the organisation’s Project ‘Change’. Since then, both schools have raised funds to support the project’s work with under-privileged children in rural communities.
Junior School students gave school bags filled with stationery to the children of Sri Siddhartha Kanishta Vidyalaya, Boralugoda in Hanwella for their Christmas charity gifts. The Junior School Prefects also raised Rs. 41,000 from a bake sale to sponsor three children’s education at a school in Moneragala. At the Senior School, students have given 46 disadvantaged children the materials they need to attend school: shoes, a school bag and stationery. These children were then invited to a Christmas Party organised by the Prefects, where they were given the gifts and took part in games and other festivities. Earlier in the term, a group of Senior School students had also visited Mrs. Gunawardene’s home to help run a jamboree for some of the children supported by the organisation.<< Back
