A note on Origami- The Art of Folding paper

By- Leo Tharindu Perera Origami is the art of making different creations by folding paper. This fine art, traditionally inherited from Japan, gradually united the culture and education of the Japanese four centuries ago.

Just Be You Challenge

By- Leo Dinendri Wilegoda Arachchi Just Be You... The words say it all, we wanted every young person to be truly proud of who they are and the achievements they have gained and the achievements that they are to gain in the future.
