Located in Kurunegala, Northwestern Province, the school is on a main road and is well served by public transportation. Agriculture is thriving in the region, with many residents growing rice and vegetables for a living.
In FY 2021, when face-to-face classes resumed, we planted fruit trees such as mango and rambutan, moringa with its nutritious fruit and leaves, and Pongame Oiltree which is expected to serve as a windbreak.
Kumari, a 12th grader who participated in the event, said with a smile, “we must take action to protect the environment, and I learned that there are many things we children can do. The most important thing is to change our awareness. It is very difficult but I am sure we are better at it than adults.”
