The Dhammananda Vidyalaya, Moronthuduwa, selected as a ‘Showcase school’ under the Smart Schools initiative, was visited recently by the senior management of the Commercial Bank of Ceylon, one of the principal corporate partners of the initiative, which seeks to create smart schools where students and teachers use IT facilities to improve knowledge and skills in subjects such as English, Mathematics and Science for the GCE Ordinary Level and in Bioscience and Mathematics for the Advanced Level examinations. 

The visiting Group included the Bank’s Chairman Dharma Dheerasinghe, Director of Commercial Bank and Trustee of the Bank’s CSR Trust S. Swarnajothi, Managing Director Jegan Durairatnam, Chief Operating Officer S. Renganathan and Deputy General Manager – Marketing Hasrath Munasinghe. Commercial Bank has donated computers, laptops and multimedia projectors to the school and established four Smart Classrooms. 

The Bank has donated 175 IT labs to schools under its flagship IT education initiative and 65 of those laboratories are being utilised in the smart schools project. Commercial Bank has also made substantial investments to develop the curriculum for all age groups for this program and has developed an online learning portal called Sipnena to benefit students.
