We see it as an opportunity to add value to the education institutes in the rural area of Sri Lanka. Seeing smiles on the faces of these children and the appreciation of the teachers is something that we at the hotel greatly enjoy, and we have chosen to focus our social responsibilities on this cause,” Munasinghe stated.
A thank you speech was delivered by Nawaratna the principle of Sri Vajiraggnana School and everyone was then invited to enjoy in the refreshments provided. The guests parted with heartfelt appreciation and wonderful memories.
