Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Riyadh

I am pleased to note that Sri Lanka International School in Riyadh (SLISR) has become the center of excellence for Sri Lankans in the Kingdom. Its journey for the past three decades, with integrity, respect, knowledge, innovation and optimism as core values, has been remarkable. Inculcating these core values in the young minds who are the future leaders of our motherland, with the objective of living in a multicultural society, believing in tolerance, diversity and harmony is praiseworthy. I am aware this great institution has excelled not only in producing several professionals but also established its credentials and earned its goodwill and reputation among the Saudi establishments. I wish to record my sincere felicitations to all those who have contributed to such achievements.

As the patron of this valued  institution , I am pleased to state that the Government of Sri Lanka is positively looking at several proposals made by the school administration since my arrival in October last year  which include   holding of the GCE OL Examination in the Kingdom and facilitating training facilities for the academic staff of SLISR.

This year has been a milestone year in the history of our school. I am pleased to know the school is ready to move to a suitable and spacious campus in a few days.   I am sure this new premises will enhance the teaching and learning process effectively. I wish to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the board members, staff, parents, past pupils and well-wishers for the effort that they have invested in this noble project.

I wish everyone of you the very best in all your endeavors.
