On January 8th, we began the 2018 school year with 10 children who were starting their second year at Palathuduwa Preschool. On January 15th, we welcomed 10 new children to the preschool. Our second-year students welcomed them with bunches of flowers.
During the first month of school, teachers taught students about the environment, including different animal sounds and trees. During the second month of school, we held a fair for the children to teach them about money.
Classes and activities continued as planned, providing parents and guardians with support and advice in the proper care of their young children, and providing children with a safe environment, at least one nutritious meal a day, and quality preschool education, including health awareness, eco-awareness, diversity awareness, and basic communication technologies.
In February, we held a fair for the children so they could learn how to use money. They also learned how money is valuable and useful in our day-to-day lives. Finally, they were able to deposit their money into their bank accounts. Bank officers have informed us that if children can deposit money monthly, the bank will bring gifts to the year-end concert.
