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
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.
