MRS K.L.S RAJAPAKSHA
Mrs. Daniel was succeeded by Mrs. Rajapaksa. Although she rendered her services for a short period, she was able to serve the school for its development. Mrs. Rajapaksa was fortunate enough to obtain assistance from parents and past pupils association to improve the physical resources that were needed. Accordingly, she was able to purchase the much needed chairs for the main hall and also to purchase a bus for the school to solve the problem of traveling on special occasions. Past Pupils Association used their funds at this stage as one of their main projects. This could be recorded as the first school bus owned by a school in the Southern Province.
She was much interested in the personality development of the child and introduced Karate to the school sports curriculum; she also helped to enhance their skills by giving an opportunity to the child to make announcements in school themselves on special occasions.
She held cultural festivals to collect funds for the school development and continued to keep up the standard of the school by organising the main events in the school the traditional way. She made arrangements to celebrate the Poson Festival with a Bakthi Gee recital and the Esala Festival with a kids pageant. A building which was completed to house the science laboratory was declared open by then President R.A. Premadasa. The room used for computer studies was air-conditioned during this period. She was able to take over the ground floor of the Dissanayaka building which had been occupied by the Education Department for some time to convert it to a dancing room.
She always honoured the services offered by the tutorial staff, gave guidance to inaugurate the “Sanasa” movement for the welfare of the staff and organised an annual trip for the teachers by the teacher’s welfare association. She rendered her services for the development of the school during her short stay and left school in 1995 being promoted as a Deputy Director of schools.
