Beragama became a new school for us in 2013.

The Principal was very pro-active in approaching Project Manager, Jaya, about computer equipment after hearing of our centre at Mahasenpura. 

As a result, we have sent our hardware expert, Nuwan, along to assess which of the schools six computers can be repaired and which need replacement parts. 

The school itself has been well looked after even though it has few facilities.

It is situated in area that formerly had very little of anything, beyond scrub.

But in recent years, it has been the focus of the government's main infrastructure development in the country.

Close by is a new botanical garden for the dry zone and an international convention centre that was opened a few days ahead of the Commonwealth Summit in Colombo. 

At the moment, there are almost no hotels for delegates to stay at, but this is likely to change in the coming years.
