DFCC rewards productivity in schools

DFCC Bank and its retail banking subsidiary Vardhana Bank recently hosted the 4th Annual Productivity Awards, for schools which participated in their CSR program the '6S and 3R Implementation in Schools Project' for 2012 at the Cinnamon Grand with Education Minister Bandula Gunawardana conferring the awards.

The highlight of the occasion was that DFCC has completed the implementation of the project in 100 schools across the country in Anuradhapura, Badulla, Batticaloa, Galle, Jaffna, Kandy, Kalutara, Kurunegala, Matara, Matale, Nuwara Eliya, Panadura, Ratnapura, Trincomalee and Tangalle.

Prize money to the value of Rs. 1.4 million was distributed among schools which demonstrated outstanding achievements during 2012 in adopting the highly acclaimed Japanese philosophy '5S' supplemented with an additional 'S' for Safety.

Vice President, Group Corporate Communications, DFCC Bank, Rosheeni Wijesekara said, "In 2012, the Bank focused mainly on schools in rural areas of the North and the East that was ravaged by terrorism.

The schools were in poor condition and had been neglected for many years. Giving these children an opportunity to adopt a program of this nature in their schools was a turning point for the teachers and parents.

It was truly rewarding to see the transformation. Children have successfully adopted these good habits, reflected in their behaviour demonstrating greater discipline and productivity, while being more enthusiastic to attend school."

The following schools were selected to implement and adopt the 6S and 3R during 2012.1st place - Trincomalee Vigneswara Maha Vidyalaya, 2nd Place - Kahawatta Primary School, 3rd place - Vavuniya Church of Ceylon Tamil Mixed School.
