is working towards bringing together diverse perspectives under one umbrella to develop positive thinking about Sri Lanka. The Mother Sri Lanka Program is implemented with leadership and direction from the President’s Office.

Batuwangala Maha vidyalaya’s sinhala Literary Association was held in the school main hall last Wednesday.This was the first meeting for 2010.Curriculum studies as well as the co-curricular studies are a must to school children.Principal Mrs.Thilaka Wijenayake manipulated Mr.Sujith Priyantha Gamage and Other staff members to arrange the necessary arrangements.Students from all the grades participated in the Sinhala Literary Association.Priyantha Pushpakumara of Grade 13 was selected as the President for 2010 while Ayesha Mihirani from same Grade became the secretory.Given bellow is a speech made by Ayesha Mihirani.
The English Literary Association of Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya Gathered last week and appointed new Admin Panel.BMV concerns about academic and co curricular activates as well.In today’s highly compettitive world, we have to bear a lot of mental stress and also have to get involved in so many things in order to acquire knowledge.This is where co-curricular activities play a very significant role.They help us get mental rest and also helps us stay physically fit and healthy.
Given Bellow is Our President and secretory for the year 2010.They were appointed by the students them selves.
Being only brilliant in academics doesn’t help a student become a responsible citizen of that country.A student should also be equally talented in other fields and even if not, they should atleast pay some interest in them.It’s because being both academically and co-curricularly talented helps a student to face the world.This also helps in developing his/her personality.There is no doubt that academices are the priority in a student’s life but it would be very wrong to say that co-curricular activities are a kind of hindrance to academic excellence.Students don’t go to school only to study but they also go their to show their potentiality in other fields like sports, dance and music.Moreover, it fully depends on the student how he manages both his study and other activities’ schedule.Another advantage of co curricular activities is that they help a student in building up their skills or nourishing their inner capabilities.Being a good debator means that a person can face any kind of interview in any interview which he applies for as naturally, he/she will have good speaking skills.Moreover, to get admitted in many top institutions in today’s world, we have atleast got to know any of the acivities other than academic like sports or music.

Ayeshika is a school girl who studies in grade 11 Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya at present. She is one of girls who was designing webs and blogs under the evillage project situated inside the computer lab of Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya. Ayeshika does not have her father unfortunately with her and she lives with her Mother and Sister. Both the sisters come to Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya and were fine with the studies. Ayeshika has more talents than students of her age. If we forget the fact that these students have not had enough teachers in their school while they were very young she has showed a fine capableness for education and other traditional processes which All average Sri Lankan girls have. From Grade one she is the monitor of Her grade. She got the high marks for religion and technical subjects. Students are very reluctant to go front of a gathering and address them. Ayeshika does not belong to that category and as she does Dancing from the childhood she is an aesthetic girl.
There is no any association in the school where Ayeshika does not participate. She once was the chairman of Sinhala Literary association junior category and did her service to Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya. Every year she participates for English, Sinhala Language days and has performed there nicely. One of the milestone of her student hood is she joined the village project. From this point she could learn basics of computing and Select to the junior e-team of the school. Then she did the upper computer course which is conducted by Aruna Sir our computer Teacher and finished it with satisfactory demonstration of web designing and web blogging. She started her blog from there and started broadcasting herself to the whole world. Ayeshika prefers to write on Any subject on Sinhala. At the monument she is learning English very hard and she will finish it with colours we believe.
Another mile stone of her student hood is Mother Sri Lanka debate series organized by the Ministry Of education, Sri Lanka with collaboration of Presidents office. This series of Debates held at several places island wide. Firstly there was the Zonal Level competition and from there Batuwangala MahaVidyalaya Won the first place. Ayeshika elaborated on old Sri Lankan tank building technologies and livelihood of Ancient Sri Lankan people. She compared to today Society as well and built some nice arguments. She did her best to become the Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya the First of Zonal Level. Then we went to District level. The Function was organized at one of leading colleges in Galle, Sri Lanka and our team consisted Ayeshika and another five members. However the competition was very high as the schools from each and every corner of the Galle district was there. All day alone the completions were in progress and Finally Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya won the second place resulting us to be participate for the Grade finale of the provincial Level. The Provincial level competition was there at University of Ruhuna Sri Lanka and BMV won the Second place from there also. Ayeshika was brilliant as a students to present her argument even front of all distinguish guest from Ministry of education and of course she did major role for the school. The All island debate competition will be on next month and we now are readying for the event. Ayeshika herself is busy coz she has to face GCE OL coming December.
Nilipa Ayeshika’s sister sat for GCE OL examination on December 2007 and got best results for the school. Nilupa is a 19 yrs old girl from Batuwangala. She is very cleaver and talented girl and of course she is going to sit for the G.C.E. A/L examination held by department of examination. The exam will be on August this year. She is a member of Batuwangala evillage project from the beginning and of course she was studding in Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya then and now goes to A national School. Not as many children Ayeshika and Nilupa have come across lot of hurdles from childhood. Her mother is a housewife. Facing the challenges of poor family economy she never gave up giving her Children a good Education. Even Some times they didn’t have food for breakfast. Two sisters came to school with a big hope of One Fine day.
Even though these girls do these things they were facing lot of hardships. Their mother had to look after these two girls with lot of care. In April 2009, Ms Heike Sonntag (a German teacher who is running social projects throughout Sri Lanka) visited Batuwangala evillage as a part of a training session organized by Aruna Sir, our patron. Then Miss Heike promised a scholarship for Ayeshika. This was the happiest news they had ever heard. Keeping her word, Miss Heike found sponsors in Germany who were willing to support Ayeshika with a scholarship of 20 Euros per month. The scholarship started in July 2009 and is now managed by a German society, Sri Lanka Hilfe Verein Zollernalb e. V. (with Mr. Abeysingha Gamage as its chairman and their Sri Lankan office located in Galle). With this scholarship Ayeshika has been able to continue her education without any obstacles. Ayeshika also helped her sister too with this scholarship.
In November 2009, Ayeshika’s German foster mother, Mrs. Annette Willmann visited Ayeshika’s home and noticed that there was no electricity in the house and that the two girls were studying using kerosene lamps. Mrs. Willmann then decided to fully sponsor all the necessary works and the CEB application fee to get electricity into Ayeshika’s home. Miss Heike, who yearly spends a few months in Sri Lanka to do social work, acted in Mrs. Willmann’s name, making the necessary money transactions and keeping Ayeshika’s foster parents informed. Miss Heike reports that Mrs. Willmann is very delighted to see the photos taken of the two girls sitting at their fully lighted study desks.
We would like to thank Mrs. Willmann, Miss Heike and Sri Lanka Hilfe Zollernalb e. V. for their continuous work and dedication in helping Sri Lankan children. Finally, Principal Tilaka Wijenayake and Mr. Aruna Chaminda must be thanked for their cooperation regarding the task.
