- This event has passed.
For some it was just an opening ceremony of a language school building with state of the art facilities. But for those who have been travelling with the Headway family, it was but a long term dream coming true. Twenty years ago, a simple school teacher had a dream of building a school building with all the facilities a student could dream of. After years of toil that dream came true on 11th June 2018. A large number of parents, religious dignitaries, students, family, franchisees, well-wishers and general public gathered at No.12, Thamaraikeni Road, where the building is housed, gathered to witness this great event. The chief guest Mr.Nagendran Uthayakumar, the Government Agent, said that he had been observing the genuine service rendered by Headway from its inception and congratulated the directors and the staff for their great team work in achieving this success. Mr.Moharanjithan Narendran in his address thanked the staff without whom such a dream could not have been achieved. He said that he was indebted to the directors and CEO of Adventis Lanka limited, the building contractors, who completed the works in 2 and a half months. Representatives from National Development bank, the lenders for the project said that they were proud to be a part of the project.
Visitors were surprised to hear that the entire facility with eight classrooms, two language labs , a library , a kitchen and other admin rooms were all built by 42 containers which helped to speed up the construction work and to be a great example of choosing environmentally friendly materials with less waste and damage to nature.
The efficient and dedicated construction workers were highly appreciated by the CEO Mr. Ranjith Antony Thevasagayam, who in fact, designed the building and monitored every moment of the construction work.
