A leadership training programme and a workshop for prefects of Catholic Colleges and Convent Schools was carried out separately for boys and girls with the participation of 9 boys’ schools and 7 girls’ schools at ‘Subodhi’ Institute of Integral Education – Wewala, Piliyandala, which was a great success. It was organized according to an original innovative idea of Rev. Dr. Victor Silva, the Director of ‘Subodhi’ Institute.
It was a 2 day residential programme with both food and lodging as well as with lectures, various inputs, sessions of games, religious activities, meditation and also events of entertainment conducted by the 3 resident priests of the institute and qualified lay persons.
The main objective of the programme was to build up and produce valuable and useful leaders to their respective schools and to the country at large. It was very much of use to them in order to mould their personality, to gain some knowledge and experience so as to become an asset to others as well as to themselves.
At the end of the programme, a certificate was awarded for their participation to each participant, at the concluding ceremony. The boy prefects’ programme was held on 11 Friday and 12 Saturday of August 2023, while the girl prefects’ programme took place on 18 Friday and 19 Saturday of August 2023.
We wish to sincerely thank all our donors and well-wishers for helping us by way of sponsoring financially to defray the expenses of the 2 programmes. All the girls and boys enjoyed their respective programmes thoroughly and also learned so many things important to their lives by gaining some experience which was new to their lives.
