“Guru Prathiba Prabha” is an awards festival which will be organized to evaluate their services on behalf of the posterity.
Mr. Bandula Gunawardena said that many teachers who worked with dedication had not been appreciated. No such national programme had been operative. As such, the Minister revealed that the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium had been reserved for October 5th next year to honour teachers who deserved such acclamation. He said this is vital particularly to honour the noble dedication of teachers towards improving the educational standards of children.
The Minister was participating in the annual prize giving of St. John’s College Nugegoda. Prizes were awarded to students who displayed special skills in the college. Members of the staff who worked with dedication on behalf of the students came in for acclamation. Present on the occasion among others was school Principal G.P.B. Liyanagaskumbura.
