CSA, the new international school in Colombo, hopes to commence operations on 6 January 2015. CSA is affiliated to the Imperial Institute of Higher Education (IIHE) – Sri Lanka’s only institute that is directly associated with the prestigious University of Wales (UK) offering BSc and MBA degree programs. The CSA Good Start Series promotes learning beyond the curriculum. It is very much in line with CSA’s overall plan for their students. The school is dedicated to nurturing students’ natural curiosity and passion for learning
CSA Principal Shaleeka Jayalath is looking forward to having maximum student participation at these sessions every week. “These sessions are in line with our mission for the school which is to empower and inspire students, by providing them with a holistic education,” she stated.
