A Level Drama Classes

Posted on December 10, 2007  /  1 Comments

We received this ad from two leading theater personalities in Colombo. We are posting it here partly because of the insights it gives about our education system. Do our A/L kids really learn all this cool stuff? Can schools indeed outsource theater teaching to private professionals? Imagine the difference between book learning and learning from professionals. If anybody is looking for a gift that lasts, consider sponsoring a talented youngster from a poor government school in our midst in Colombo for Rs: 2500 a month. The Forum can get you a list and coordinate.
