For the first time in Sri Lanka a girl whose arms and legs do not work due to a weak nerve condition, has passed the GCE Advanced Level Examination with flying colours by giving oral answers at the 2012 A/L examination.

U.G.Thilini Nimesha a student of the Ambanpitiya School for Children with Special Needs in Kegalle had made her parents proud by passing the Advanced Level exam with flying colours.  She had obtained two A passes, one B pass and a C pass in the Arts stream. She had got through her O/L examsecuting five credits also by answering the question papers orally.

Nimesha’s mother who is a deputy principal and her father, a math teacher were thrilled to hear the news of their daughter’s achievement. Nimesha is unable to write as she has a weak nerve condition and her wrist not being positioned properly, but she has managed to rise against all odds to be the first to pass A/Ls by giving oral answers.

    These are the stories you should in your papers. Not the students who topped ALs. Apart from this kind of differently abled students education do not create role models like in sports. Therefore parsing the achievers do not encourage the under achievers. It acts other way around. It discourages the under achievers.

    This example should be used as a platform to reform disability act in srilanka , so much is needed to address the perseption of srilankan disables.
