Teaching Science in English at Horizon Academy – Mahawilachchiya

We did a pilot in teaching science subjects in English medium in October, November, and December in 2017 for the grades8, 9 and 10 students at Horizon Academy – Mahawilachchiya operated by the Horizon Lanka Foundation. The goal was to make the students get an opportunity to learn the same subject matters which they already studied in the local language, Sinhala again in English medium so that they would get a new experience. A young science teacher, Mr. Eranda Rathnamalala did this pilot on a voluntary basis. He is a graduate teacher from the University of Jayawardenepura, Sri Lanka. We thank Mr. Rathnamalala for rendering his services to us.
