Dr. Attygalle will speak on ‘The common mental health issues in children and adolescents and how they impact education’, while Walsh and Gunasekara will speak on ‘Engaging all the students through excellence and enjoyment’ and ‘Good grooming practices and the effect of them on students and teaching’, respectively. CIM SL Educational Services Manager Onalie Dissanayake sharing her views on the Teachers’ Forum said, “As an educational institute we feel it is important to organise forums of this nature for teachers to discuss and share their views on the issues and trends in new-age education.
