SeylanTikiri Creative Till competition extended
In keeping with Seylan Bank's aim of promoting the savings habit
among children, a 'Creative Till competition' has been launched for
children below 10. This is the first competition of its kind organized
by any Bank in the island, and will reward the main winners with a
package tour to the Dreamworld theme park in Thailand. The competition
consists of two aspects.
Due to numerous requests, especially from schools where the bank
maintains students savings centres, the deadline for the competition has
been extended till September 25 to accommodate more entries. Completed
tills should be presented to the branch where the Tikiri account is
maintained. You could also enter the competition by opening a new
account in the event you are a not an account holder.
The Seylan Bank's minor savings scheme, SeylanTikiri, with a history
of 23 years is one of the most favoured children's savings accounts in
The Seylan Student Savings Centres in schools across the island play
a vital role in acting as channel extensions in reaching out to the
children to promote the savings habit.
While rewarding the child depositors with novel and innovative gifts,
Tikiri also imparts and encourages the savings habit from a tender age.
Seylan bank's belief is if children get involved in banking practices
from their early childhood, they will learn about finance, fund
management and practice savings throughout their adult lives.
DGM Marketing and Personal Banking, Seylan Bank, Tilan Wijeyesekera
said, "The savings you make today become a wonderful gift for a child's
future. The Seylan Student Savings Centres are run by the senior
students of the school to whom the bank provides training.
This guidance along with the savings habit nurtures the children and
gives valuable insights for investments as they grow older.
