Twenty-six Smart Boards and 160 all-in-one computers worth Rs 35 million were handed over to 95 schools in Anuradhapura District under the World Bank funded General Education Modernization project at a ceremony held at the Anuradhapura North Central Provincial Council Auditorium recently. Finance State Minister Shehan Semasinghe and North Central Governor participated as chief guests. It was disclosed that so far 150 Smart Boards have been distributed among the selected needy schools in the North Central Province.

Another 48 schools selected from the North Central Province were handed over Smart Boards worth Rs. 19.2 million recently under the financial patronage of ‘Brandex’ garments company. One Smart Board costs Rs. 400,000 each. North Central Governor Maheepala Herath distributed the equipment to the Principals of the beneficiary schools jointly with the former North Central Chief Minister S. M. Ranjith.

“It is our intention to host North Central Province schools to be in the forefront of Information Technology and English education, not second to other provinces. The Brandix Company in this connection has been contributing to this programme since 2019 having donated around 100 Smart Boards so far to rural provincial schools along with a specially designed valuable software which helps to study the English language textbooks from Grade 3 to Grade 9,” the Governor emphasized.
