Col. Henry Steele Olcott Memorial Sports Foundation conducted the inaugural leadership programme for the students of Olcott schools – Nalanda, Dharmasoka, Maliyadeva, Rahula, Dharmaraja, Mahinda and Ananda College, recently.


It was a residential workshop hosted at Kithusevena on Baudhhaloka Mawatha, Colombo.


The principals of the respective schools nominated four students from each school who had either done their A Levels in 2017 or those who would be sitting for the A Levels in 2018.


The workshop, which would normally be offered to entry level management trainees in the private sector, included topics such as leadership, motivation, communication, team building, time management, planning, selecting a career path, etc.


The workshop was facilitated by the experienced HR professional and Lecturer Denuka Perera and included several team activities and games to facilitate the learning process, which the students enjoyed very much.


Dhammika Kalapuge and Sanjiva Senanayake were the guest speakers who spoke on ‘Personal Effectiveness’ and ‘Col. Henry Steel Olcott’, respectively.


Although this inaugural leadership programme was restricted to the member schools of the Col. Henry Steele Olcott Memorial Sports Foundation, the foundation expects to offer this annual programme to students from other schools as well in the coming years, like its annual quiz programme, which has grown to include 20 leading schools over the past four years.


The total cost of this residential programme was met by the well-wishers of the foundation: Rahula Dassanaike, Mohan Mabotuwana and Harsha Gunasekera, who have assured their support in the coming years as well.


The President of the foundation is the past national cricketer Jayantha Seneviratne and the Chairman for the project was Kumar Weerasuriya.
