The students who started the course in February 2018 continue their studies under the GEL programme of JWL. Since they started classes later than normal commencement of the batch in January and because of the A/L classes from May, alternative time has been allocated for these students to come and complete the course.
It has been the experience of the Facilitator that these students who attend the GEL programme are quite weak and slow in understanding the most basic components of English language. Hence, the Facilitators need to dedicate more time and effort in explaining to them the basic knowledge. It would be difficult for these students to proceed further without a solid foundation in English. These classes are expected to provide them with a sound basic knowledge in English that they can utilize in their future learnings.
The classes for children in Dance and Music continue with greater enthusiasm. Dance and music is one of the most helpful ways of educating the children of today’s generation about a number of fundamental human values in life that will play a vital role as they grow up in the society. It is not only the skills in music and dance that Loyola Campus- Mullaitivu is interested but forming and helping to develop the complete person.
Despite a myriad of challenges, the Centre continue to offer its services to the students in and around Mullaitivu. One of the most significant challenge the Centre faces is recruiting Facilitators who and qualified and willing to be a part of teaching professional courses in English and Computer.
