The month of April has brought in fresh energy with Easter and New Year. This time also has provided the staff for respite during a busy month of operation. Due to a number of transitions and the completion of the certificate courses started in January 2018, the month of April had been quite hectic.
After Easter Sunday, the campus started functioning regularly. The volunteers had taken a week off to spend time with their Australian friends who have volunteered in Galle. During the second week of April students were encouraged to write articles on Ecology and Religion, the theme selected for the forthcoming issue of Loyola Campus magazine.
A staff meeting was held on 9thApril 2018. Some of the important issues take up for consideration were the diploma course, preparation work of Loyola Campus inventory, students’ data sheet, fixing date for the final exam, planning for the next intake, and so on. We had also discussed about practical hours that the students have to complete before their sit for the final exam.
As part of practical work of the students, the Intermediate students made PowerPoint presentations in groups on 21April. The topics were limited to Vavuniya district. The main purpose was to create awareness among the students on the conditions of the area they live. However, Pre-Intermediate students were given selected topics from their course book to make it rather easy for them.They also had their presentations on the same day. Whereas, Elementary students covered their practical hours through teaching children at Loyola Campus and those in the neighborhoods they live.
Ms. Premini and Fr M Elias were present for the Certificate Awarding Ceremony of Loyola Campus Mannar on 21April and we appreciate the quality and the content of the programmes arranged by Staff and students.
