SHIVA Charity 2004 Sri Lanka update from Bob Uppington (Chair of Trustees)

Every year I oversee the progress that SHIVA Charity is making in Sri Lanka, and soak up some of the sunshine! I was surprised to see how huge the new classroom is for the Pre school in Pitipana. It is open air, and designed to create a drama or exhibition area, when necessary.

St Mary's Computer Centre was opened last year, attached to the main church in Pitipana. It is bustling with activity, and the classes are well organised by the teacher, Nilantha. I was very pleased to see the students coping with Word and Excel, as it also helps them to progress with their English language skills.

Of course, some of the time we need to relax! Here pupils from the Learning Centre are playing games and picnicking in the park in Kandy. Please click the photos if you wish to see the larger version.
