Today’s My most important event was to deliver a speech to the Advanced level students of that great school Richmond College in Galle, at the invitation of the Principal Mr Sampath Weragoda and of Nalaka Jaysena an outstanding scholar of the School and of mine. The geographical situation of this school in one of the highest peaks in Galle . I was surprised and in awe at the discipline of the students. In a place with a student population of 5,000 I did not hear a single voice. The high standard of cleanliness and the environment mesmerised me. I was highly taken up by the dedication of the staff. I wish this great school greater heights with the new vision and guidance of the new Principal.
