Deputy General Manager Marketing and Personal Banking Tilan Wijeyesekera commenting on this reward said, “Seylan Tikiri is delighted to reward and encourage a generation of high achievers who look forward to receive our coveted rewards and gifts. The ‘Creative Till Competition’ was the first competition of its kind organised by any bank in the country to enhance childhood creativity and promote a culture of savings among children. We are also proud to note that all three islandwide No.1 ranked scholarship winners are Tikiri accountholders.
The unique aspect of Seylan Tikiri is that it extends amazing benefits to its young customers not only in academic excellence but also by recognizing and rewarding innovative young minds.” The students who excelled at the Grade 5 competition are Melanie Wijesinghe from Mawanella, W.E. Sachini Kavindra Unantenne from Gampola and Master Ravindu Wanigasekara from Kotiyakumbura.
The winners of the Tikiri Creative Till competition are A.D. Rathnayake (Best Creative Till) from Anuradhapura branch and M.M.P.B.

Furthermore, by exposing the young students to a foreign tour, Seylan Bank is opening their minds to the world beyond the shores and allowing a glimpse of the opportunities that are for their taking if they study hard and achieve good results.
A foreign tour adds tremendous value to the confidence and conviction of students to work harder than a mere financial contribution.
