HSBC Colombo HQ Visit

Posted on by Tharindu

HSBC MCCC Visit 3As part of its MCCC sponsorship, HSBC invited a group of students to its Colombo HQ this month. We took a group of students from our one-year diploma and post A-level classes along with a few of their parents.

Many of the students had never visited Colombo before and certainly not to a big organisation like HSBC.

In addition to seeing how a modern office works, the students also gained valuable insights from its officers about how to think about their future careers and why studying IT is an important component of that.

Nadigamwila networking 1This school has one of the most dedicated principals in the whole area and a good IT lab, which lacked one thing: a network.

So Nuwan set this up for them with the help of Lakshan from his diploma class at the MCCC.

The two also fixed a number of harware and software issues among the 10 computers. They needed three new mouses and eight of the computers needed a new operating system.

Now the computers are networked it will be very easy for the teacher to share files among the students

Akila AyeshWelcome to Akila Ayesh who has joined the MCCC as its new intern.

We got to know Akila when he studied for the Microsoft Certificate Course in the autumn of 2018.

Instead of going to university, he had decided to prioritize gaining some vocational qualifications in the IT field as he would eventually like to set up a computer repairs shop.

In addition to working at the MCCC, Akila is also gaining work experience through a part-time job at a local communications shop in Tissa and doing some video editing.

We have also been very impressed with his enthusiasm and dedication.

All four have volunteered to continue fixing computers at their locals schools, which will be a great help to Nuwan in the future.

Thanks to HSBC’s donation, we were able to fix the school’s 12 computers. In total, the group needed to install a new operating system into three computers and provide the following hardware items: three mouses, four power units, one motherboard, one hard disc, one speak set, one monitor and two power cables
