In February, Form 1 students visited the Preethipura Home for the mentally or physically handicapped in Wattala to conduct an art workshop, serve lunch and make a donation of Rs. 20,000 to buy equipment for the home’s physiotherapy room, with money they had raised themselves. This visit had made such an impact on the Form 1 students that we then invited some of the residents of the home to the school on Community Service Day in April for activities including a Paralympics organised by our students. The visit undoubtedly achieved its aim of “Spreading Smiles, Brightening Lives” and will be a day to remember for both our guests and our own students.
