ComBank awards IT labs to schools that won Mother Sri Lanka ‘Project RUN’ competition

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon is to award fully-equipped IT labs to the three schools that won the Project RUN competition conducted by Mother Sri Lanka, a non-profit organisation working to advance educational, socio-economic and cultural development via programmes in schools country-wide.

The pledge was made at ‘Temple Trees’ where the awards ceremony of Project RUN took place and the top three prize-winning schools – Mylani Saiva Maha Vidyalayam - Chunnakam, Gonadeniya Maha Vidyalaya - Wekandawala and Aislaby Tamil Vidyalayam, Bandarawela – were announced.

‘Project RUN 2021/22’, a project between Commercial Bank and Mother Sri Lanka where Commercial Bank is the Principal Sponsor, is the only programme in the country aimed at nurturing responsible citizenship among school children. The event recognised school teams that had designed projects to uplift lives and enrich communities. It was preceded by provincial and all-island finals.

The community initiatives launched by the participant schools were aligned with the concepts of Responsible citizenship, Unity, and National pride (RUN). These included projects such as renovating and maintaining public facilities, care for elders, producing organic vegetables, cost-effective water solutions, art and poetry competitions and interaction with students from different ethnic groups.
