Speaking about the honours received at the 5th International Best Practice Competition, Mr. L.C.Weerasinghe, Director/General Manager said, “It was a sincere pleasure to be able to help improve education facilities of the children of Mune Sinhala Vidyalaya. There is much to be done in terms of assisting this particular school as well as other schools in the area. However, we were happy to set precedence in supporting the community in the area, in particular the future generation who will one day join the driving force behind our country.”
Sierra Readymix built five class rooms, a multipurpose building, a theatre along with a dressing room and a movable classroom that can double as a main conference hall at the school premises. The solar power system installed at the school premises today provides electricity to the school.

Mune Sinhala Vidyalaya in Kandakuliya, Puttalam facilitates around 400 students from grade 1 – 9. The school lacked even the basic infrastructure, compelling a large number of students to attend classes in the shade of a tree. This had contributed to poor attendance as harsh sunshine and rain proved to be hindrances to the process of learning.
Having identified this crucial requirement, Sierra Readymix stepped forward to provide assistance and succeeded in constructing the multi-purpose building within a month’s time as discussed with the students and parents. Mr. D.N.N. Lokuge, Chairman, Sierra Readymix and Mr. L.C.Weerasinghe, Director/General Manager, Sierra Readymix were instrumental in carrying out the entire project to complete construction of the series of buildings and installing the solar power system.
