Today we have the honour of welcoming a delegation of senior politicians and advisors from Sri Lanka. Pictured with Mr Uttley, Fr Saju and Mr Dunne are : Tissa Hewavithana, Commissioner General, Ministry of Education; Hemantha Udayakumara Premathilake, Additional Secretary (Education Quality Development), Ministry of Education; Panambara Arachilage Sanath Premalal Jayalath , Assistant Director, Ministry of Education; Maureen Scobie, Visit Event Co-ordinator, British Council. The VIP party have been visiting a small number of British schools where specific links exist between a UK and Sri Lankan school. We are proud to say such a programme has been successfully in place at SJBC (and one of our predecessor schools) for a number of years. We wish them a safe journey home.
