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.
We love graphic designing. We had learnt the basics of Adobe Photoshop from our former teachers Dhananjaya Wijewickrama and Prarthana Sewwandi Wijerathna. After they left us to pursue higher education we had no one to teach us graphic designing. But with the arrival of the young Vietnamese volunteers recently now we are learning Photoshop again. Yesterday Miss Truong Thi Bich Trang taught us some good Photoshop lessons. Miss Nguyen Thi Hue Mr. Tran Minh Quan helped us practice those lessons. We love Photoshop. If anyone who is good at graphic designing, please come to Horizon Lanka during a weekend and teach us. We can provide you food and accommodation free. 10 years ago we got a lot of groups of university undergraduates, IT company employees, members of Sri Lankan Diaspora who came here and taught these lessons to our former students. Some of those students are professional graphic designers today and even have their own enterprises by now. Hope you too can help us.
