A New Library for the Balangoda Damahana Public School.

The Damahana public school has consistently delivered outstanding teaching to its students, even though it lacked many key resources and facilities. Chief amongst these was the lack of a library for the children. Now, thanks to the Secondary Education Modernization Project (SEMP) and a donation of Rs 1.9 million a brand new library has been built allowing the children to expand their knowledge and learn from a wonderful array of new books.

The chief minister of Sabaragamuwa, the honorable Mr. Maheepala Herath, handed over the library to the students in an official ceremony that took place on 29th of June 2010. In attendance were the provincial chief secretary of Sabaragamuwa, the honorable Mr. Bhanu Munipriya (minister of Health, Indigenous Medicine & Women Affairs in Sabaragamuwa) and the honorable Mr. Sepala Kuruppu Arachchi (Provincial Manger, Sabaragamuwa educational modernization project and director of Balangoda zonal education).
