Sampath Bank donates books to school library
Sampath Bank, in its efforts to serve the school communities in
suburban and rural Sri Lanka donated English library books to Mahamathya
Vidyalaya in Athurugiriya.
The consignment of library books was handed over to the school at a
ceremony recently by Tharaka Ranwala, Head of Marketing, Sampath Bank
Ltd. Mahamathya Vidyalaya has over 1,800 students consisting of low and
middle income families in the area. The school has commenced classes in
the English medium for the GCE Ordinary Level classes this year.
However, the two school libraries serving the primary and upper
school classes lacked quality English books. Thus, Sampath Bank's
donation consisting of reading material, dictionaries, encyclopedias and
recommended text books comes as a timely and an invaluable contribution
to the student community, a spokesman for the school said.
