On December 05, 2013, we embarked on our final library donation project for 2013. In 2012 hSenid Group CEO Dinesh Saparamadu pledged to donate to fifteen libraries across Sri Lanka to strengthen relationships built with the communities across the country.
We took off around 6.20 am, despite Ragama not being too far away. It was the last day of school before they closed for Christmas vacation and we were determined to not get caught to the holiday rush, office rush hour and school traffic. We were welcomed by the school Principal Mrs Vasantha Ranasinghe who led us to the Main Hall for the ceremony.
The school has approximately 800 students from grades one to five who are supported by a dynamic group of teachers, known to be some of the best in the Batuwatta, Ragama area. While at the ceremony, we noted that the students are taught to be studious and disciplined from their younger days. The ceremony was to commemorate both the book donation ceremony and to felicitate those who topped the grade five scholarship examination.
The Batuwatte Primary School library comprised books and bookshelves donated mostly by the students and the top achievers of the scholarship. The Principal informed us that the school was to receive four new bookshelves the following year and the newly donated books would be a perfect fit.
