Sumudu Pre-School Sponsorship

Posted on by Jaya

Sumudu Pre-schoolA big thanks once again to Cate Thomas, her partner Ron Sidell and her brother John Skutsch for renewing their annual sponsorship of one of the teachers at Sumudu pre-school in Lunugamvehera.

The Montessori school, which they built nine years ago continues to thrive thanks to their ongoing investment.

The school now has 25 students, overseen by one teacher and one assistant.

This November I also attended their annual show.

MCCC IT CampThis November we held an IT camp for students about to sit their computer O-level the following month.

About 100 students from the area participated in the one-day intensive teach-in, which was run by their teachers and the MCCC’s training staff.

We broke the day up with morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea, all of which was made by possible by HSBC’s funding of the centre.
