President fulfils pledge to construct auditorium at Malwana Al Mubarak Central College

  • President Wickramasinghe was always committed toward Enhancing Education for the Nation’s Youth – Ruwan Wijewardena.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe made a commitment to construct a fully furnished auditorium for Al Mubarak Central College in Malwana, while attending its centennial celebrations last year. Honouring his promise, funds were designated for this endeavour, guaranteeing that the new auditorium would have the capacity to host around 5000 students simultaneously. Yesterday (06), the ceremonial laying of the foundation stone for this contemporary structure took place at the college, under the patronage of Mr. Ruwan Wijewardena, Senior Advisor to the President on Climate Change.

Addressing attendees during the foundation stone-laying ceremony at the college, Mr. Ruwan Wijewardena assured prompt completion of the auditorium construction, facilitated by labour contributions from the Navy, with the intention to promptly deliver it to the students.

Mr. Wijewardena emphasized the significant contributions of Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe towards the advancement of education for the nation’s youth. He also announced that in line with the President’s commitment to the residents of Biyagama, construction of a new hospital in the locality is scheduled to commence next month.

Expressing his views at the event, Mr. Ruwan Wijewardena further said;

I am delighted to share in this momentous occasion. Last year, during the centennial celebrations of this college, President Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe pledged to provide the institution with an auditorium. Today, true to his word, he has allocated the necessary resources for the construction of a fully equipped auditorium on this campus. I assure you that this auditorium will be built and handed over to the students at the earliest, with the Navy contributing to the labour force.

There exists a strong connection between Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe and the Malwana area. Having served as the Biyagama Constituency Organizer, he has made significant contributions to this locality. His efforts have greatly benefited the education of both boys and girls in Malwana and across the country. Additionally, Mr. Suranimala Rajapaksa has also played a pivotal role in advancing education in this region.

I am confident that the construction of the new auditorium will not only benefit this school but also the entire community. Other schools will have the opportunity to utilize this facility. Furthermore, in keeping with President Wickremesinghe’s promise during the last general election, I am pleased to announce that the foundation stone for a hospital in this area will be laid next month.

It is my fervent aspiration to realize the objective of establishing another national school within this constituency. Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe consistently demonstrates his dedication to serving the residents of this area, and we should take pride in his efforts to enhance the educational opportunities for the children here.

Under the leadership of our esteemed President, we are all committed to fostering the development of this region. The Alumni Association, in collaboration with the school principal, played a significant role in providing this auditorium to our school. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all involved individuals at this juncture.

Principal S. H. M. Mr. Naim of Malwana Al Mubarak Central High School, alongside the teaching staff and a group of enthusiastic students, actively participated in this event.
