Under the Student Exchange Programme funded by India-Sri Lanka Foundation, a group of 10 students from St. Patrick’s College, Jaffna visited India from 9-15 December. This is in continuation of Youth Exchange Programmes facilitated by High Commission of India between the two countries.

Previously, High Commission of India had facilitated a Youth Exchange Programme between the students of The Royal College – Colombo and students of The Lawrence School, Sanawar – India. 

During their visit, Sri Lankan students interacted with students and teachers of Apeejay School, who shared best practices in the areas of Yoga, Public Speaking, and Science and Technology etc. They also participated in practical sessions in Physics, Chemistry and Computer Sciences and got an opportunity to learn about STEM Robotics, 2D-3D Printing and Artificial Intelligence. They gained knowledge on historical places by visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Delhi.

Students visited the homes of their Indian peers and had a glimpse of Indian culture and ways of life. They also participated in cultural programs and showcased the culture of both the countries. The exchange program was concluded by conducting cricket and football matches between two schools which helped in strengthening the bonds of friendship.

Other youth exchange programs with schools from Galle and Kandy are under discussion. These youth exchange program are intended to open new avenues and strengthen cultural, educational and people to people ties between the two countries.
