Let's learn to play Rugby; the project reached the sandy beaches of Kalutara, the next stop for the Platinum awards initiative to spread Rugby across the country.
Kalutara is well known for its lovely beaches, hotels and one of the biggest tourist destinations in Sri Lanka. The people of Kalutara though never shy away from competitive sports, therefore the warm welcome and enthusiasm shown to the organizers was anticipated and encouraging.
The participation of the host school Kalutara Vidyalaya should be commended. 138 boys actively were involved learning the game of rugby. Not far behind was Royal College Panadura (101 boys), followed by Deshanthara Balika Vidyalaya (13 girls), Kalutara Balika Vidyalaya (19 girls), Bandaranayake Maha Vidyalaya (11 boys, 18 girls), and Katukurunda Dharamapala Maha Vidyalaya (18 girls). A total of 327 students participating were very productive and encouraging.
Under 12, 14, 16, and 18 were the age categories. There were a number of invitees and dignitaries present at the program. Coaches from Sri Lanka Rugby conducted the introductory program.
