    “They are visiting six of Colombo’s leading schools; Bishop’s, Ladies, CIS, British, AIS ”
    So, not government schools, uh?
    glad that FT finally started to use the entire name Scholarships for USA (Pvt) Ltd – where it makes it sufficiently clear that it is a for profit company,and not some sort of a do-good organisation, which the name seems to imply at first glance.

    I could hardly pick a “prestigious’ college from the list. Parents Pls do your homework.
