Sweeping Changes at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya
The Founder and the Chairman of the Horizon Lanka Foundation, Mr. Nanda Wanninayaka is leaving Sri Lanka to volunteer in South America for a period of one year from next month. Hence, there are sweeping changes at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya these days. We appointed a new manager, Mr. Ranjan Prabhath Rathnamalala, an energetic young man in the village, also a counselor and the headmaster of the Sri Mihihindu Dhamma School in Mahawilachchiya. Miss Jeewani Shanika Dissanayaka was appointed as the accountant of the organization. We also appointed Miss Prarthana Sewwandi Wijerathna, a former student of Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya who just finished her High School in Biology stream as the ICT instructor of the Academy. Her dream is to become a computer instructor and also an English teacher. She hopes to graduate in both the subject areas in coming years.
We held a staff, parents’ and students’ meeting on September 24, 2017 and discussed the forthcoming changes and how to continue the academic activities in the absence of Mr. Wanninayaka. The new staff would assume their duties from October 01, 2017.
