Dinum Hewavidana made  flying visits to the both schools on 4th Jan 2013 .  There were grand welcoming ceremonies at the schools where children performed cultural dances and sang songs. Little Dinum  presented children with stationery which he had brought from England. .    The two principals expressed their gratitude to Neil Carson and Alan Hutchison and said the libraries had made a huge difference to children’s education.
