Life during the pandemic has been difficult for parents and children alike.
The return to school is an important and welcome step, but it is important that children return to a safe and hygienic space to resume their learning.
Speaking on the initiative, the Principal of Biyagama Central College, Mr. U V Gunarathne said, “While the pandemic has been a never-before experienced challenge to us all, we should also remind ourselves of other risks due to the overgrown vegetation such as mosquito breeding - and we must take necessary steps to eliminate this risk.”
“I would like to thank the parents, teachers and the Anchor team for coming together in an effort to make this environment safe and hygienic for the over 2,000 children of our school and for following the guidelines of the local health authorities.”
Fonterra Brands Lanka health and safety experts also kicked off a week-long series of safety briefing sessions to the schoolchildren, who return in rosters from Monday the 10th.
