Centre for Excellence the newest addition to Trinity College’s academic and professional development portfolio of assets was declared opened by the Principal, Rev. Fr. Araliya Jayasundara OSB amidst a gathering of students, staff and past pupils, recently.
Formally known as the Career Guidance Unit, the Centre for Excellence underwent considerable levels of change over the last few months under the T150 celebration mandate and now the unit is repositioned as a personal & professional skills development and career planning hub for students commencing from grade 9 onwards.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Principal stated that the CFE will function as a catalyst in the formation of young lives beyond the classroom functions of a regular schooling system. “The name change from Career Guidance Centre to Centre for Excellence was a much thought through decision, as this Centre has to function beyond advising on employment selection,” the Principal said. He further added that the core purpose of the CFE is to develop authentic human beings who can change, transform and lead the requirements of the 21st century.
TCK Centre for Excellence [CFE] was conceptualized, developed, funded and renovated by the Class of ’99. CFE is a “work in progress” and many more infrastructural development and resource mobilization projects are planned under its Phase II and Phase III expansion agendas.
Representing the class of ’99 Mr. Sampath Tennekoon said, “the best way to predict the future is to create it. In order to do so, the most appropriate point to start is by transforming the younger generation of Trinitians by helping them unleash their potential to the fullest in the journey of self-development and personal growth.” Making a request from the young Trinitians he said, “make use of this space to its maximum potential by positively and actively engaging with the resources that are provided for your own personal development.”
The CFE aspires to create an environment of sharing best practices and opportunities in the academic and corporate spheres, build trust among students and parents to embrace the rapidly emerging new higher educational changes with agility. It seeks to provide guidance and direction in exploring individual potential, inculcate the habit of lifelong learning driven by a thirst for self-development with the aid of customized personal development plans and instil and drive values that are expected from a socially responsible, empowered citizen of this millennium.
