The awarding of prizes to the students who participated in the scholarship class of the education centre and scored more than 100 marks in the scholarship examination held in 2022 took place on the 18th of February at the Education Centre auditorium. 

The students were awarded a school bag containing stationary and exercise books. Special gift vouchers were also awarded to students who exceeded the cut-off marks in the district. Asinsa Devindu Ranasinghe, a student who came to the education centre’s grade 5 scholarship class, was praised as he achieved the highest marks in the centre.
