Hejaaz International School, Mount Lavinia, bagged the ‘Best School Award’ at the 11th Asian Karate Championship held at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium. Over 100 schools competed at the event. The boys won 11 gold medals and 10 silver medals while the girls bagged six gold medals and 19 silver medals. This is a tribute to the grit and determination shown by every Hejaazite and the rigorous work conducted by the trainers, Sensei Chaminda Herath with the boys and Sensei Thilini Kulathunga with the girls.

This is a sport that has gained momentum in the recent past with the school providing ample facilities and opportunities for the students to excel. The dedication shown by the teachers-in-charge, Suranganie Weerasinghe and Achala Wickramasinghe is also commendable.
