School children have responsibility to win the coming century – President

School children have responsibility20170328President Maithripala Sirisena says that the school children have the responsibility to win the coming century by building on the past experience.
 
The President was speaking at the centenary celebration of Ferguson High School, Rathnapura, today (March 27) at the school premises. He was the chief guest of the ceremony.


“As evident, the history of a country is the foundation for what would happen in that country in the future. In this current era when everything depends on money, we should understand the challenge to win not only the exams but also the life” he pointed out.


“The school children in Sri Lanka are forward in passing exams. But we cannot be satisfied with their disciplines”, he said. He gave several recent examples to prove it.


A souvenir stamp was issued to mark the 100th anniversary of the school. The President presented gifts to the students who demonstrated outstanding skills. He declared open the newly built indoor stadium of the school. The President also visited the stalls of the exhibition, organized to mark the anniversary.


President Sirisena presented a plant to Mrs. M. Galagama, the Principal of the school, to be planted by symbolizing of the project to plant 4000 trees, under the program of Sustainable Schools. He also presented her a notice which has been made by the Ministry of Environment. This notice which has been designed to raise awareness about the environmental protection will be exhibited at every school.


Two students of the school presented an environmental-friendly bag to the President. This bag has been produced by the Ferguson High School. The Principal of the school presented a souvenir to the President at this occasion.


Ministers Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, W. D. J. Senevirathne, Deputy Minister Dunesh Gankanda, Governor Marshal Perera and the Chief Minister of Sabaragamuwa Province Maheepala Herath were among those participated in this ceremony.
