The first phase of the Leadership Training and Attitudes Development Training Programme has reached the final stage.
The training programme has been launched for new university students. They have now received full training and experience on how to commence the day and engage in their day to day activities properly. According to the timetable they engage in physical training. They also had the experience of climbing the Nagalakanda in Polonnaruwa.
Lectures were also delivered to them on various topics. They joined in many practical programmes including debates and social treatment. The young male and female leaders took part in cleaning the Bosath Children’s Home at Hingurakgoda and offering the inmates food and drink. During the evening they participate in sports activities. They displayed their skills in various sports by dividing themselves into groups. By late evening, they were able to watch films and share their experiences during Campfire. They also underwent training on how to eat with the fork and the spoon and attire themselves properly. All of them became members of one family. There are only a few days more for these new University entrants to end their three week leadership training.
The programme is a joint effort by the Higher Education Ministry and the Defence Ministry. It has been found that such training was worthwhile to mould future leaders who would give courage to the country.
