Asian Law Students’ Association Local Chapter of Horizon Campus organized the annual court visit on the 29th of January, 2018 in order to give its member students a high exposure to the legal profession.
The students of the Faculty of Law of Horizon Campus were privileged to visit and experience the proceedings of District Court, High Court and the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka.
Undergraduates of Batch 5 following the B.Sc. (Hons) in Biotechnology of the Faculty of Science, conducted a Social Responsibility project, providing donations to the less fortunate children of Vishaka Pre-School situated in Karunodagama, Yatiyana, Matara. The school houses a total of 19 students which include 8 girls and 11 boys, who are all educated and looked after by a single teacher. These students were studying under numerous difficulties and lacked requirements such as stationery items and proper school bags. The team of undergraduates were able to purchase the necessary items for the children, with the aid of students, lecturers and outsiders of the campus, who provided donations to raise funds for this worthy cause.
Water bottles, pencils, school bags, story books, crayon sets and bank pass books were distributed to each and every child as the team visited the pre-school. Providing these items to the children created a brighter future for their education, and their parents were also supported, as their financial burdens were reduced. The immense joy and happiness of the children as they received their gifts could be seen in their faces. By completing this project, the group of undergraduates successfully extended their helping hand as socially responsible citizens of the country.
