2014 PowerPoint competition

Posted on by Tharindu

Mahasenpura SchoolThis year we had 198 entries for the annual PowerPoint competition we run in conjunction with the Department of Education.

We were very pleased to see a big increase on last year’s 46 entries.

The winner was Nimesh Deshan from Debarawewa President’s Primary College, one of the largest schools in the area.

Nimesh’s theme was the classification of animals.

We liked it a lot because he had created his own animations and arranged his information in a logical and informative way.

Second place went to Inusha Damruwan from our own Mahasenpura School.

She chose a science theme – pressure.

Third place went to Nuwanthika Madhubashini from Viddyartha School who created a teaching tool covering the use of nouns.

One of the diploma graduates hopes to use his new knowledge to gain a promotion at the local salt factory where he is a machine operator.

He is now applying for a job as a test officer.

Another plans to open a small hotel with her husband.

The course had four modules covering MS Word, programming, hardware and graphic design.
