The new classroom
Ceylinco Life builds classroom for Divulapitiya school
Ceylinco Life's community initiative to support education in
under-served towns and villages across Sri Lanka reached another
milestone recently with the donation of a classroom to Assennawatta
Kanishta Vidyalaya, Divulapitiya, taking the number of schools assisted
under the program to 60.
The school, which accommodates 105 students, was the fourth to
receive a classroom building from the life insurance leader this year.
The Higgaswatta Primary School, Kuruwita which accommodates 1,167
students, one of the four schools which benefited this year, received a
classroom designed for students with special needs. The school has 34
teachers with classes up to Grade 10.
"Our countrywide branch network helps us to identify the schools most
in need of support and ensure that construction meets standards and is
completed on time," Ceylinco Life's Managing Director and CEO R.
"The company has been donating classrooms for 10 years and will
continue this project in support of the educational needs of rural
students," he said.
