The students of the Kindergarten were engaged in a Christmas fund raising project for the third consecutive year; with this year focusing on contributing much needed equipment to the Intensive Care Unit of the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Childrens’ Hospital at Peradeniya.
Collection boxes were kept at the beginning of the term in all the KG classrooms, with classes competing with each other to collect the highest amount. At the close of the fund raising, the students and their parents had contributed a sum of Rs. 67,240.00.
The equipment were then bought by the teachers and handed over by the students to the representatives from the hospital at the Kindergarten Christmas Party, held on 27th November 2018, at the Junior School Hall.
We are grateful to Dr Waruni Gunarathne for co-ordinating the project, Dr M.A.M. Faizal – Consultant Pediatrician at the Intensive Care Unit of the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Childrens’ Hospital, and Ms Lalani Ganegoda (Sister, M.I.C.U) for their enthusiasm and support for the project.
By involving students in activities of this nature at a very young age, Trinity strives to inculcate the true Christmas spirit not only by word but by the deed as well.
