May has been a month of endings and new beginnings. It is indeed, a month full of different experiences for the staff and the students. At the beginning of May, the staff attened a Teacher Training programme organised by the Country Office in Kandy. The training was for three days. Connecting with staff from all over the country allowed ideas and experiences to be shared between the staff, while also increasing the strength of relationships.

Elias during a farewell function organised on 10 May.
