Luxmy Maha Vidyalaya which presented an ugly picture with weather-stricken
parapet and dirty old building walls became an attractive place
for its students after the soldiers of 18th Gemunu Watch (18 GW)
colour washed it during the August school vacation.
School authorities sought the help of soldiers at the nearby Army
camp to get the buildings colour washed since the school had hardly
any fund to spend on the labour cost. It was further learnt that
students there come from low income families.
Acting on the school’s request, Commanding Officer 18 GW Lieutenant
Colonel Sampath Bulathgama assigned 25 soldiers to complete the
task on 24th August.
Kovilakkandy Luxmy Maha Vidyalaya is a school in a remote village
with limited resources.
