Sampath Bank’s Pahe Shishyathwa programme has continued to echo the bank’s undying commitment to build a bright future for the country’s next generation. Taking a step further in this endeavour this year, the bank presented the best performers of the recently concluded Grade Five Scholarship Examination and their respective schools with massive cash prizes.
Consequently, Sampath Bank awarded a cash prize of Rs.150,000 to P.V.L.
