Abans observes World Children’s Day at Ampe Junior School

Abans conducted a CSR initiative at Ampe Junior School in Balapitiya to mark World Children’s Day on September 29.

A large number of parents as well as teachers and students had assembled to observe this universal event and praise Abans for conducting a function of this nature for the first time ever in this remote school.

Abans presented books and stationery requirements for the new school year to students of grades one to eleven and also clay, bristle board and crayons to help the students enhance their artistic talents.

Competitions were held in Essay Writing, Art and Speech where the topic was “World Children’s Day”. The Children showed remarkable prowess in all three categories and it was a difficult task to single out winners for the respective events.

While the judges were engaged in determining the winners of the competitions, the children entertained everyone present with a scintillating dance act that was performed with precision and graceful movements.

The names of the winners and runners-up of the three competitions were announced and they were presented with Lenovo Tabs, Rice Cookers and Toasters.

The Principal D.Sunil Shantha de Silva and teachers were presented with token gifts. The Chief Guest at the event was G.A. Dilip Kumara, Divisional Education Director, Balapitiya.

The Principal, teachers and parents appreciated this gesture by Abans and said that the school had never experienced such a wonderful event before. They expressed their hope that Abans would continue to conduct such meaningful CSR initiatives at their school in the future.

The Chairperson of Abans, Aban Pestonjee, this CSR initiative of Abans was conducted by Dhammika Prasanna, General Manager of ABS Gardner Dixon Hall International (Pvt) Ltd, the in-house advertising Agency of the Abans Group and his team.
